In Turkish literature, from the first period of the Tanzimat, when the novel genre began to emerge, writers began to deal with the conquest of Istanbul in their works. Writers and publishing houses were not indifferent to this subject, which continued to attract the attention of Turkish readers in the period from 1875 until today, so the subject of conquest and the ruler of conquest, Fatih, remained on the agenda. In the studies carried out so far, the Byzantine state and social structure before the conquest, the upbringing of the Conqueror and the awakening of conquest consciousness in him, and what happened during the siege period have been focused on. In this study, it will be focused on how the historical figures who have been with Sultan Mehmet since his birth, who were engaged in his education and training during his childhood, taught him the art of war and state manners, thus forming the background of the conquest in a way, will be focused on how the Turkish novel manifested.
