Hatice Sultan (Ottoman Turkish : خدیجه سلطان; Ḫadīce Sulṭān) was an Ottoman princess, daughter of Sultan Selim I and Hafsa Sultan. She was the sister of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent.

Ottoman Turkish or the Ottoman language, is the variety of the Turkish language that was used in the Ottoman Empire. It borrows extensively, in all aspects, from Arabic and Persian and it was written in the (Perso-Arabic) Ottoman Turkish alphabet. During the peak of Ottoman power, words of foreign origin heavily outnumbered native Turkish words, with Arabic and Persian vocabulary accounting for up to 88% of the Ottoman vocabulary.

Selim I Sultan of the Ottoman Empire

Selim I , known as Selim the Grim or Selim the Resolute, was the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire from 1512 to 1520. His reign is notable for the enormous expansion of the Empire, particularly his conquest between 1516 and 1517 of the entire Mamluk Sultanate of Egypt, which included all of the Levant, Hejaz, Tihamah, and Egypt itself. On the eve of his death in 1520, the Ottoman Empire spanned about 576,900 sq mi (1,494,000 km2), having grown by seventy percent during Selim's reign.

Hafsa Sultan (wife of Selim I) Valide Sultan of the Ottoman Empire

Hafsa Sultan was the wife of Selim I and the first valide sultan of the Ottoman Empire as the mother of Suleiman the Magnificent. During the period between her son's enthronement in 1520 and her death in 1534, she was one of the most influential persons in the Ottoman Empire.

Biography

Hatice's birth date is unknown, but she was likely born before 1494. [1] She was the daughter of Şehzade Selim (the future Selim I) and his concubine Hafsa. She may have married Damad Iskender Pasha in 1509, an Ottoman governor and later admiral who was executed in 1515. [1]

It had long been believed that Hatice Sultan subsequently married the grand vizier Pargalı Ibrahim Pasha. However, in the late 2000s research conducted by the historian Ebru Turan revealed that this claim was not based on solid evidence, and that in fact no such marriage ever took place between them. As a result, historians now generally agree that Ibrahim married another woman, Muhsine Hatun, and not Hatice. [2]
