The Levant Company was an English chartered company formed in 1592. Its initial charter, awarded on 11 September 1581, was good for seven years. It was granted to Edward Osborne, Richard Staper, Thomas Smith and William Garret with the purpose of regulating English trade with Turkey and the Levant. The Company remained in continuous existence until being superseded in 1825. A member of the Company was known as a Turkey Merchant. Its charter was approved by Queen Elizabeth I as a result of the merger between the Venice Company (1583) and the Turkey Company (1581), following the expiration of their charters, as she was anxious to maintain trade and political alliances with the Ottoman Empire.

  • La Compagnia del Levante è una società commerciale riconosciuta e fondata nel 1581 dalla corona d'Inghilterra sotto il regno di Elisabetta I ed allora dotata di diritti esclusivi per il commercio con gran parte del mondo. Questa antenata delle odierne multinazionali svolse un compito molto importante nel processo di colonizzazione attuato nei secoli successivi dagli inglesi, oltre a consentire il mantenimento di buoni rapporti con altre popolazioni. Questo avvenne ad esempio nel caso del rapporto con l'Impero Ottomano. La Compagnia del Levante supportò anche la corona francese nell'assumere un ruolo egemonico nel Medio oriente nel XIX secolo.

  • La Levant Company, fondée en 1592 par une charte royale de la reine Élisabeth Ire d'Angleterre et disparue en 1825, est une compagnie commerciale britannique disposant pour ce pays du monopole du commerce en Méditerranée orientale (le Levant), principalement dans l'Empire ottoman. Elle est née de la fusion de deux compagnies dont les privilèges arrivaient à leur terme : la Venice Company (fondée 1583) et la Turkey Company (fondée 1581).
