Anyone been to the museum in Istanbul? The Crown Jewels of the house are the most valuable (according to the docent) of any royal house....That emerald dagger is a sight to see.

Does anyone have any information on Hayraddin Silodin Arnulph (LeTurk)? He is supposedly the son of Sultan Djem by his french wife during his imprisonment in the 1400's. Also, any information on the French wife?

There have been some rumors flying around in my family that Sultan Djem was brought to France by Count Kaimund of Toulouse from Palestine, however those dates do not match up with records. There is a copy of a grant at Nismes of 1529 in the archives of Paris that Hayraddin Silodin (Dejems son) also known as Arnulph Le Turk was knighted and admitted into the nobility. Then a renewal was granted by Francis I to Reginald DeTurck which is my 14th great grand father who was mayor of Nismes, dying in 1554.

While the proof is there per the grants from Francis I, I am still a little sketchy on who my ancesters were and how I'm connected to Prince Djem from Hayraddin Silodin. When I follow the tree line and evidence it puts Djem as my 15th great grandfather. If anyone has any solid information that they could share with me, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you so much!

yes Dear she was the lovely wife of Süleyman the Magnificent , and she’s from ukraine and was taken to istanbul with force .
she Born in 1506 and her real name before Before her marriage " Alexandra Anastasia Lisowska "
but much later traditions, for example Ukrainian folk traditions first recorded in the 19th century, give it as "Anastasia" (diminutive: "Nastia"), and Polish traditions give it as "Aleksandra Lisowska".
and then she known for " Haseki Sultan " That mean the wife of the Emperor and she known in Rolxelana and in Turkey known in Hürrem
her Religion: baptized Eastern Orthodox Christian at birth, later converted to Sunni Islam .
Children : 1- Selim II " Male "
2- Princess Mihrimah " female "
3- Cihangir " Male "
4- Bayezid 5- Mehmed " Male "
her earily life
According to late-16th-century and early-17th-century sources, such as the Polish poet Samuel Twardowski, who researched the subject in Turkey, Hürrem was seemingly born to a father who was a Ukrainian (Ruthenian) Orthodox priest. She was born in the town of Rohatyń, 68 km southeast of Lwów, a major city of the Ruthenian Voivodeship in the Crown of the Kingdom of Poland (today in western Ukraine). In the 1520s, she was captured by Crimean Tatars during one of their frequent raids into this region and taken as a slave, probably first to the Crimean city of Kaffa, a major centre of the slave trade, then to Constantinople, and was selected for Süleyman’s harem.
her life : She quickly came to the attention of her master, and attracted the jealousy of her rivals , first she was planning to merry Süleyman to
Revenge from him because her parents died in Ukrainia because of Süleyman soldiers , and it was first step in the plan to change her religion to islam because Süleyman the Magnificent of the Ottoman Empire not allowed to marry from other religion .
But after she attracted Süleyman and see how much he’s gentleman forget her revenge and fall in love Deeply with him .
Roxelana influence over the Sultan soon became legendary; she was to bear Süleyman Five children Princess Mihrimah, Selim, Beyazid, Abdullah, Cihangir and Mehmed, in an astonishing break with tradition, eventually was freed and became his legal wife, making Süleyman the first Ottoman Emperor to have a wed wife since Orhan Gazi. This strengthened her position in the palace and eventually led to one of her sons, Selim, inheriting the empire. Roxelana also may have acted as Süleyman’s adviser on matters of state, and seems to have had an influence upon foreign affairs and international politics .
and Hürrem Haskeki Sultan , or Roxelana, as she is better known in Europe, is well-known both in modern Turkey and in the West, and is the subject of many artistic works. She has inspired paintings, musical works (including Joseph Haydn’s Symphony No 63), an opera by DenysSichynsky, a ballet, plays, and several novels written mainly in Ukrainian, but also in English, French, and German. In 2007, Muslims in Mariupol, a port city in Ukraine, opened a mosque to honor Roxelana .
She Died in : April 15 , 19558

Hello
I live in Greece, and since 3 days now they broadcast in TV the Turkish serie "Soliman the magnificent" I followed 2 of the 3 and I found ver very nice. They focuse a lot on the relation with Aleksandra-Hrrem, it really seems that she took a very large part on his life.
I have many questions for turkish speakers, or people who deeply know the ottoman period.
- what does Hrrem mean??? on the serie Alexandra insists on this name, given by the Paddishah, after her night with him. But her rival does not accept to call her Hrrem, why?
- How old was she, when she started being his favorite?
- I know that at the ottoman palaces women vere always covered by vails, and the only males allowed to get into, out of the Sultan and the young boys, were the eunuques (castrated). But yesterday, i saw one scene of the serie, where the Valide Sultan (mother), one of the Sultan's wifes, and his sister, went for a walk at the gardens, head and face uncovered, and they had small talks with some men!!! COULD IT THIS BE POSSIBLE???
Thanks.

Hi :)
- Hürrem means gracious, charm, good humored. Her rival insists on calling her as Alexandra because it is a privilage to be named by Paddishah and no rival would want it for her/his opponent.
- There are several thesis concerning her age but nothing is clear as black and white. She was born around 1500 and on 1520/21 she gave birth to her first son. So she may be 17 - 18 yeras old when she became his favorite.
- Yes it's possible because women weren't always covered by vails. That vail type was an Ottoman custom and most of the women wore vails like that. That garden you saw was Harem's garden and women can go there uncovered because you know that garden was theirs And they were free to talk to men of course. They were concubins and most of them were so glad to be there, because it was the richest and the safest place to live.

Thanks a lot for your help. Tonight is the fourth episode, so tomorrow if I have new questions, I'll abuse of your kindness and knowledge.
P.S. So the young and unmarried sister of Suleyman, could talk to men uncovered, provided that it was inside her place, but she could not go outside uncovered. (she should be happy to do, because something might happen between her and Ibrahim Visir. See tonight)

Hahaha You're welcome neighbour, anytime
Yeap she can go Harem's garden uncovered but can't go outside the palace without vails. She can talk anyone she pleases because she has privilages as being the sister of Suleyman. For instance she can divorce a man, at that times it was impossible for women. You can learn tons of Ottoman culture on that serie. I like to watch it too. New series will be broadcast on 12 September in Turkey. Watch Hatice and İbrahim, there will be a history between them :)

I know I was in Greece last month and Turkish series were all over Greece Kenize Mourad is a great writer and dead princess is a brilliant novel. It reflects the last period of Ottoman Empire and situation of the imperial family after exile. This TV serie focuses more on Harem life and the top period of the Ottoman Empire. Wealth, power and victories. I'm sure that it will be as famous as Binbir Gece in Greece. Hürrem's ring will be everywhere like here i guess
