The Ottoman dynasty is really interesting specially when it comes to relationships between the Sultan`s & their women. I watched recently the Turkish series "Muhteşem Yüzyıl" or The Magnificent Century in English. It is a historical fiction television series based on the story of Kanuni Sultan Suleyman (Sultan Süleyman the Magnificent), the longest reigning Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, and his wife Hürrem Sultan, a slave girl who married him & became Sultana.
