newbie help - 156 starting issue

Hi All, have a 156 ts 1.8 which has sat on the driveway for around 18 months (due to overseas work commitments) anyway desperate to get it back on the road again.
Have checked over oil levels/fluids & charged up the battery. First couple of turns with the key works as expected, with lights/wipers etc all working as normal....then third and final turn delivers nothing.....(I'm guessing some issues are to be expected from this 'downtime') Is this likely to be a seized starter motor? anyone have any ideas on what else could be checked or done to get her firing up again?
any help would be much appreciated.

Flat battery. Swap for a known good one off another car.

Clean all the battery connections including earth points.
