Ahmed Midhat (1844 — December 28, 1913) was an Ottoman journalist, writer, translator and publisher of the Tanzimat period. In his works, he was known as Ahmed Midhat Efendi, to distinguish him from the contemporary politician Ahmed Midhat Pasha. Ahmed Midhat Efendi took its name from Ahmed Midhat Pasha, as he worked for a time as an official and newspaper editor in Midhat Pasha's Vilayet of the Danube.
Politically, his orientation was more conservative, compared to writers such as Namık Kemal. He was a prolific writer, more than 250 of his works have survived. From 1878, he published the newspaper Tercüman-ı Hakikat (interpreter of truth).
In addition, he was a patron and teacher to Fatma Aliye, one of the most famous female Ottoman authors.
