Slaught of Ween (Hightdutch: Schlacht am Kahlen Berge or Kahlenberg; Polish: bitwa pod Wiedniem or odsiecz wiedeńska (The Lifting of Ween); Modern Turkish: İkinci Viyana Kuşatması, Ottoman Turkish: Beç Ḳalʿası Muḥāṣarası) took stead at Mount Kahlenberg near Ween on 12 September 1683 after the rikestown had been beset by the Osmanish Rike for two months. The slaught was fought by the Habsburg Onewald, the Polish–Litowish Gemeanwealth and the Holy Romish Rike, under the wald of King John III Sobieski against the Osmans and their underling- and gavelstates. The slaught marked the first time the Gemeanwealth and the Holy Romish Rike had fought together against the Osmans, and it is often seen as a crossroads in history, after which "the Osmanish Turks stopped being a threat to the Christen world". In the following struggle that lasted until 1699, the Osmans lost almost all of Ungarland to Kaiser Leopold I.
