Highly respected for their military prowess in the 15th and 16th centuries, the Janissaries became a powerful political force within the Ottoman state...
— Britannica
The Janissaries were an elite class of soldiers hailing from the Ottoman Empire. Expected to be completely loyal to the sultan, the Janissaries were the first standing army in Europe and began as a corps of soldiers composed of kidnapped Christian boys forced to convert to Islam. They're considered no ordinary slaves, but they're also not freemen. Nevertheless, the Janissaries were proved to be a powerful corps and their faction was expanded when the Ottoman Empire expanded, as well. Their discipline was well-known, but their large usage of firearms were also known. They themselves were as proficient in traditional, melee, Turkish weapons as they were with firearms. Although the Janissaries were a mighty faction of soldiers, they later disbanded the moment they realized their importance in the empire and manipulated it. They're still kept as elite soldiers for the empire, until Sultan Mahmud II disbanded them. The military corps, since its formation to the end, had participated in many battles for the empire from its beginning to its end.
