Selim II, or Selim the Drunkard, had no interest in governing his empire, preferring to spend his time engaged in drunken debauchery. However he inherited the capable Grand Vizier Mehemed Pasha Sokolovic, a Muslim of Serbian descent, from his father Suleiman the Magnificent. Sokolovic (or Sokullu in Turkish) extracted a tribute of 30,000 ducats a year from Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian II. Also by terms of this treaty the Ottomans gained significant authority in Moldavia and Wallachia.
