The Eyalet of Adana (Ottoman Turkish: ایالت آطنه; Eyālet-i Āṭanâ) was an eyalets of the Ottoman Empire, established in 1608, when it was separated from the Eyalet of Aleppo. Its reported area in the 19th century was 11,409 square miles (29,550 km2).
The Ramadanids played a key role in 15th century Ottoman-Mamluk relations, being a buffer state located in the Mamluk al-'Awasim frontier zone. In 1517, Selim I incorporated the beylik into the Ottoman Empire after his conquest of the Mamluk state. The beys of Ramadanids held the administration of the Ottoman sanjak of Adana in a hereditary manner until 1608.
