Mihrişah Kadın (Ottoman Turkish: مھرشاہ قادین‎; died c. 1732) alias Emine (Ottoman Turkish: امینه‎)[1] was a consort of Sultan Ahmed III and the mother of Sultan Mustafa III.[2][3]

Life[edit]

After entering the imperial harem she was given the name Mihrişah (meaning "Sun and Sultan"). Ahmed married her, and on 25 August 1710 she gave birth to her first son Şehzade Süleyman (died 11 December 1732), and on 28 January 1717 she gave birth to her second son Şehzade Mustafa.[4][5] In 1728, when Süleyman was eighteen and Mustafa was nine she commissioned two fountains in Üsküdar.[6][7] Ahmed was deposed in 1730, and his nephew Sultan Mahmud I ascended the throne. Mihrişah along with other ladies of Ahmed's harem went to the Eski Palace, at Beyazıt Square.

Death and aftermath[edit]

She died in 1732,[1] and was buried in the mausoleum of imperial ladies, New Mosque, Istanbul.[8] Şehzade Mustafa ascended the throne as Muatafa III after Sultan Osman III's death in 1757. However, she was never Valide Sultan, as she had died before Mustafa ascended the throne. He commissioned the Ayazma Mosque in memory of his mother, and elder half brother Şehzade Süleyman.[9][10] A fountain is also present near her tomb.[8]
