After the fall of Jerusalem (1187) and the fall of Acra (1291), the Knights Hospitaller selected Rhodes as their new domain and acquired it from the Byzantine Empire in 1310 with the consent of the Pope. The island was controlled by the Knights until 1522, when Suleiman the Magnificent, the Ottoman Sultan conquered it following a six-month-long siege.
