As title, Hungary is allied with Hapsburg, Buda and Belgrade are controlled by Ottoman.Now in diplomacy phase, Hapsburg would like to sue for peace with Ottoman. So could Hapsburg regain home keys of Hungary from Ottoman by suing for peace? THX.

Belgrade and Buda are not Hapsburg home spaces, so the answer is no.

No. Hungary is an allied minor. Suing for peace only allows you to regain your own major power homespaces. Not independents or minors.

For a rules reference, you're looking for Step 5 of the Peace Segment Procedure on page 13.

Also note that if the Ottoman has only taken Hungarian spaces, the Habsburg can't even sue for peace, as they don't fulfill the requirements in Step 1:

A power may not sue for peace unless it has had an army leader or home space (fortified or unfortified) captured by the other power in the conflict.
