Emine Mihrişah Sultan (Devletli, İsmetli, Emine Mihr-î-Shâh Sultân, Second Kadınefendi Hazretleri) née Jeannette (died 1732) was the French second concubine of Ottoman Sultan Ahmed III, and the mother of Mustafa III,[2][3] Şehzade Selim, Zeynep Sultan and Ümmügülsüm Sultan of the Ottoman Empire.


Emîne Mihr-î-Şâh[4] was born as Jeannette in France. However, she was never Valide Sultan to her son because she died in 1732, twenty-five years before Sultân Mustafa III's accession to the Ottoman throne.[5] Mehr-î-Shâh means "Sun" (lit. compassion, endearment, affection, and clemency) and "Sultân".

Her türbe[edit]
