Sultan Suleiman II was born on April 15, 1642 in Istanbul. His father is Sultan Ibrahim I and his mother is Saliha Dilaşub Sultan. He was a middle-sized, grey-bearded, fat and well-to-do sultan.

Crossing the Danube, the Austrian forces captured Eğri (14 November 1687) Istoni and Belgrade (6 September 1688). The fall of Belgrade opened the way for the Europeans to the Balkans.

Although Kanije fell into enemy hands on 11 July 1690, Ottoman forces were able to recapture Belgrade on 8 October 1690. Thus, the Danube Line was re-established. Sultan Suleiman II ruled for a short period of 4 years. He spent the last two years of this as a bed patient. He was getting weaker day by day. He died in Edirne on 22 June 1691. His body was brought to Istanbul and buried in the tomb of Suleiman the Magnificent, next to the Süleymaniye Mosque.
