Prousa

   City (modern Bursa) situated in Bithynia near Mount Olympos (qq.v.). In the early 14th century relatively few cities in Asia Minor (q.v.) remained in Byzantine hands as the Ottomans (q.v.) rapidly expanded. Prousa resisted Sultan Osman's (qq.v.) sieges of 1302, 1304, and 1315. The city finally fell in 1326 to Orhan (q.v.), who made it his capital. Osman was buried there. Prousa was one of the casualties of Timur's invasion ofAsia Minor (qq.v.) in 1402. Timur's Mongols captured and pillaged the city.
