The siege of Constantinople grinds on. Ottoman casualties mount as Byzantium whittles away the forces that crash against her walls. Sapper tunnels are set aflame almost as they are dug. Two Janissaries die for each fallen soldier they attempt to reclaim. Halil Pasha urges Mehmet II to retreat, Zagan Pasha (his second vizier) pushes for an immediate heavy attack. Mehmet splits the difference, and offers to lift the siege; his terms are unconditional surrender. If Constantinople is surrendered to him, the Byzantine people will be allowed to live, and the Emperor will be recognized as a governor to the Ottoman Empire’s Peloponnesian province. But while Constantine in turn offers broad concessions, he refuses to surrender the city. He tells the sultan that "...we have all decided to die with our own free will and we shall not consider our lives."
