Navekmisal Hanım (c. 1838 – 5 August 1854; Ottoman Turkish: ناوك مثال خانم‎) was a consort of Sultan Abdülmecid I of the Ottoman Empire.

Life[edit]

Navekmisal Hanım was born in the Biberd family in North Caucasus. Her father was Prince Rusrem Biberd and her mother was Princess Fatma Kızılbek. Her mother was the daughter of Prince Batuhan Kızılbek. She had a sister named, Suzidilara Hanım (died 1919).[1]

Fatma Hanım's sister, Princess Keşfiraz Hanım, hence a close relative, and moreover had been wetnurse to Princess Refia Sultan. For this reasons Navekmisal and her sister were sent to live with her at Istanbul. Navekmisal grew into a young lady in the Imperial Harem. She entered palace service and became lady-in-waiting to Valide Sultan Bezmiâlem Sultan.[2] During this time, Abdülmecid took notice of her and they married in 1853.

Navekmisal remained childless. In early 1854, she had fallen victim to the epidemic of tuberculosis then raging in Istanbul in the nineteenth century. She died on 5 August 1854, at Şemsipaşa Palace located at Üsküdar. She is buried in the Mausoleum of the imperial ladies at the New Mosque, Istanbul.[3][4][1]
