Turkey is officially known as the Republic of Turkey. This trans-continential country, separated by the Sea of Marmara, is located in Western Asia, with claim to a small portion on the Balkan Peninsula in Southeast Europe. Throughout history, various civilizations like the Assyrians, Greeks, Indo-Eurpoean tribes and Armenians, claimed the land of Turkey as their own. In the 11th century, the Seljuk Turks began to migrate to this land and overthrew the Byzantines, claiming Turkey in 1071. Mongols invaded in 1243, and Turkey was separated into small principalities. In 1453, during the expansion of the Ottoman Empire continued to strengthen. As the Ottoman Empire began to decline, and territories were lost in war, the Turkish Empire weakened. In Turkish War of Independence, the monarchy was abolished in 1922, and the Republic of Turkey was established on October 29, 1923. Over 70% of the country’s citizens identify as Turkish.
