Title Plan de Temeswar
Year ca. 1750
Map shows the city of Temeswar and its sourrounding. Names and description of all important buildings, city walls  and streets in dutch and french language. Timișoara is the capital city of Timiș County, and the main social, economic and cultural centre in western Romania. Timișoara is the informal capital city of the historical region of Banat. In 1552, a 16,000-strong Ottoman army led by Kara Ahmed Pasha conquered the city and transformed it into a capital city in the region. Timișoara remained under Ottoman rule for nearly 160 years, controlled directly by the Sultan. During this period, Timișoara was home to a large Islamic community and produced famous historical figures such as Osman Aga of Temesvar, until Prince Eugene of Savoy conquered it in 1716. Subsequently, the city came under Habsburg rule, and it remained so until the early 20th century, except for the Ottoman occupation between 1788–1789 during the Ottoman-Habsburg war.
