Sultan Abdul Mecid I
Sultan Abdul Mecid I (1823 - 1861). His reign was notable for the rise of nationalist movements within the empire's territories. Abulmecid wanted to encourage Ottomanism among the secessionist subject nations and stop the rise of nationalist movements within the empire, but failed to succeed despite trying to integrate non-Muslims and non-Turks more thoroughly into the Ottoman society with new laws and reforms. He tried to forge alliances with the major powers of Western Europe, namely the United Kingdom and France, who fought alongside the Ottoman Empire in the Crimean War against Russia
