Not to be confused with Mollacık Hasan Pasha, who served as the Ottoman governor of Egypt (1687) immediately before Damat Hasan Pasha, or Yemişçi Hasan Pasha, who was also a damat.

Moralı Damat Hasan Pasha (Modern Turkish: Moralı Enişte Hasan Pasha or Moralı Damat Hasan Pasha; c. 1658, Tripolice, Morea – 1713, Urfa) was a Grand Vizier of the Ottoman Empire of Greek origin. He was also a two-time governor of Egypt.

Biography[edit]

He was born of Greek ancestry[1][2] in the Morea, and was abducted and converted to Islam early on at the Enderun School through the Devşirme Christian child tax system.[3] He initially served as an Armourer and rose to the post of Grand Vizier, where he served between 1703–1704.[4] He married Hatice Sultan, the daughter of Sultan Mehmed IV,[5] taking on the epithet "Damat" (Turkish: bridesgroom, son-in-law), and was eventually exiled with his wife to Izmit.

Shortly afterward a new grand vizier, Hasan, came to take the place of the old one, and he held his post during the period we are interested in: from November 16, 1703, to September 28, 1704. He was the new sultan's son-in-law… “he was a very honest and comparatively humane pasha of Greek origin and cannot be suspected of selling the sultan's pages to a foreigner.”
