Naval and maritime museums in Istanbul, Venice and Kotor (Montenegro), established in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, present “national narratives” about events common to all three that date from pre-national periods. These events include Ottoman conquests in the Balkans and Western Christendom’s reaction in the form of Crusade, both examples of “Holy War”. This paper examines the contrasting “national narratives” and representations of common “Holy War” experiences in these three museums.
