Product details The Battle of Lepanto, 7 October 1571
The Battle of Lepanto, 7 October 1571
The loss of Cyprus to the Turks in 1571 provoked action by the Christian league under Don Juan of Austria, the illegitimate half-brother of Philip II of Spain. A fleet of over 200 galleys proceeded to the Gulf of Lepanto (now Naupactos) where they met the Turkish fleet on 7 October 1571. The galleys were mainly Venetian and Spanish but also included squadrons from the Papal States and Genoa. Although the Christians were outnumbered on the flanks they triumphed in the centre and the Turks were eventually defeated.
