The Long War or Thirteen Years' War (
July 29, 1593- 1604/ November 11, 1606) was one of the numerous wars between the Habsburg Monarchyand the Ottoman Empirethat took place after the Battle of Mohács.
Participants of the war were the Habsburgs,
Transylvania, Wallachia, Moldavia(with the aid of the Holy Roman Empire, Ferrara, Tuscany, Mantua and the Papal State) and the Ottoman Empire.
The war started on July 29, 1593 when the Ottoman army under
Sinan Pashalaunched a military campaign against the Habsburg monarchy, continued with the Battle of Mezőkeresztesor Cerestes on October 24-26, 1596, and it ended with the Peace of Žitavaon November 11, 1606.
