Treasures of the Court / Hatice Turhan Sultan, Ottoman Empire (r. 16531683)

Covering 500 years, 38 patrons and several continents, this course is an examination of audacious acts of patronage and how they resulted in some of the finest art collections in the world.

Hatice Turhan Sultan, Ottoman Empire (r. 1653–1683)

Hadice Turhan Sultan was only twelve years old when she was captured in Russia. She served the sultan's mother in Istanbul; worked within the Ottoman harem; bore Sultan Ibrahim's son and came to power as queen mother in 1648. She deployed architecture (as patron of a large mosque, tomb, market complex in Istanbul, fortresses near the Dardanelles) ​as a means to legitimise her position and that of her son.
