The Turks of Medevial 2: Total War are an Islamic faction that represents the Seljuk Turks, and later the Ottoman Turks. They have outstanding mounted archers and janissary troops, though they lack in heavy armour and early period infantry.

The Turks may be relative newcomers to both Anatolia and the Holy Lands, but the impact they have had upon these realms since they migrated from the steppes east of the Caspian has been profound enough to shake the pillars of the oldest and mightiest neighboring dynasties. Having seized control of the Abbasid Caliphate from the Buyds, and utterly crushed the Byzantines at Manzikert, the Turks have restored unity to the eastern Islamic region making them arguably the greatest power Arabia or Persia has seen for centuries.
