Fort of St. Nicholas at dusk. The 15th century Fort of Saint Nicholas built by the Knights Hospitaller at the end of the pier in the Mandraki harbor was the key to the defense of the city during both the first unsuccessful siege of 1480 and the second and final siege of 1522-23. In May 1480 an Ottoman fleet appeared before Rhodes, along with an army under the command of Gedik Ahmed Pasha or Mesih Pasha. The Knights Hospitaller garrison was led by Grand Master Pierre d'Aubusson. The Knights were reinforced from France by 500 knights and 2,000 soldiers under d'Aubusson's brother Antoine. During the three months of the siege, fierce battles took place at various points around the fortified city of Rhodes, Fort St Nicholas being the point most seriously attacked. Having suffered great losses, the Turks broke the siege in August, 1480. In 1521, Philippe Villiers de L'Isle-Adam was elected Grand Master of the Order. Expecting a new Ottoman attack on Rhodes, he continued to strengthen the city's fortifications, work that had begun after the Ottoman invasion of 1480 and the earthquake of 1481, and called upon the Order's knights elsewhere in Europe to come to the island's defense. The rest of Europe ignored his request for assistance, but some Venetian troops from Crete joined the knights. The city was protected by two and in some places three rings of stone walls and several large bastions. The defense of the walls and bastions was assigned in sections to the different Langues into which the knights had been organized since 1301. The harbor entrance was blocked by a heavy iron chain, behind which the Order's fleet was anchored. In 1522, the second great siege took place. By now Egypt had been conquered by the Ottomans and the expulsion of the knights from Rhodes was imperative because of the position of the island on the line of communications between Constantinople and Alexandria. This time it was Suleiman the Magnificent who prepared the attack and Grand Master Villiers l'Isle Adam who undertook the defence. The Turkish fleet numbered 300 ships and the invading army 200,000 men. As in the first siege, the fleet crossed the straits from Marmarice and started heavy bombardment of the city. But this time around they captured the fort of Philerimos to stop reinforcements coming to the aid of the knights from the west. One after another the city walls were breached at strategic points, with immediate assaults following. The sultan had posted himself on a watch tower made of ships' masts and, like Xerxes at the naval battle of Salamis, he was witnessing the battle from a vantage point. The knights sustained this great onslaught with remarkable bravery for six months. They capitulated only when their supplies were completely exhausted. The Ottomans had the great advantage that they could easily bring in reinforcements and supplies. On 20 December 1522 the capitulation was signed. Suleiman, in homage to their heroism, offered the knights the best possible terms - that after the evacuation of the city of Rhodes and of the castles they could sail to Crete in Turkish ships, free of charge, taking with them their arms and all their possessions. Furthermore, any civilians wishing to leave Rhodes could follow the knights with all their belongings. Nearly all the country folk remained but about half the citizens sailed away with the knights.
