Turkey was called the Sick Man of Europe in the early part of the 20th century. This was because the Ottoman Empire was crumbling and the nation was not doing well economically.
The original "sick man of Europe" was the country of Turkey (then the Ottoman Empire), during the middle of the 19th century. The country was described as being sick, or decrepit, by Russian tsar Nicholas I around 1853, primarily because of its internal financial disarray, and its failures in several wars.
Turkey was called the 'sick man of Europe' with good reason. The Ottoman empire was becoming dramatically smaller, both in the Balkan states & in the Middle East. Despite their repelling the Galippoli landings the Turks had little success in WW1: Although the Armenian Massacre cannot be seen as anything but an example of genocide on a massive scale. Siding with the Central Powers did not improve Turkeys lot, and they were neutral in WW2.
The term was applied to the Ottoman Empire around 1853 by tsar Nicholas I of Russia, referring to the impoverishment of the Turkish region, and its failures in several wars. Financial disarray affected the empire for most of the next 70 years, leading to its partition and occupation following World War I. The Turks again fought the Allies and established the Republic of Turkey in 1923.
During this time period, the Ottoman Empire was increasingly getting weaker and weaker. It's nickname was even called the "Sick Man of Europe". Every country in Europe knew that the Ottoman Empire was on its last legs and that it was only a matter of time until it collapsed, which it did after World War I.
