It was not until the next Battle of Vienna in 1683, that all of Western Europe became alarmed.

The Turks were defeated, but it showed that they still had great aspirations to move further west.The following year, on August 21, 1541 after a 3 ½ month battle, Suleiman the Magnificent defeated Ferdinand I’s army and captured Buda.The Turks would go on to rule the city for the next 145 years.In 1538, Zápolya signed the Treaty of Nagyvárad, making Ferdinand I his heir, since he was childless.However, 9 days before his death, a son, John Sigismund, was born and became his heir.This led to the Turkish siege of Vienna in 1529, which was unsuccessful, along with a later attempt in 1532.
