Description:Çanakkale was an Ottoman fortress called Kale-i Sultaniye or Sultaniye kalesi (Fortress of the Sultan). It later became known for its pottery, hence the later name Çanak kalesi 'pot fortress'. As of 1920, the British were calling Çanakkale, Chanak and Kale Sultanie in their reporting. Ancient Abydos, where the story of Hero and Leander takes place, is to the north of Çanakkale.
