Halime Hatun (Ottoman Turkish: حلیمه خاتون‎) was the wife of Ertuğrul Bey, and the mother of Osman I, the founder of the Ottoman Empire.[citation needed]


Halime Hatun (born Halime Sultan) was a Seljuk princess who was the daughter of Mesud II[dubious ]. She married Ertuğrul and gave birth to three sons, Osman I, Gündüz Alp and Savcı Bey. Historian Heath W. Lowry states that Osman I's mother is unknown.[1] The burial place of Halime Hatun is located in the garden of the Ertuğrul Gazi's grave in Söğüt.


Her birth name was Halime Sultan as she belonged to the Seljuk Family[dubious ] but as she became the member of the Kayi Tribe, she was called Halime Hatun. After her son's accession to the ottoman throne, she earned the title Valide Hatun.

In popular culture[edit]

Esra Bilgiç appeared as Halime Hatun in the Turkish TV series Diriliş: Ertuğrul.
