Haseki Mehmed Pasha
Haseki Mehmed Pasha (also known as Mehmed Pasha Haseki or Mehmed Pasha Abu'l-Nur; fl. 1648–1661) was an Ottoman statesman. He was the Ottoman governor of Damascus (1650–1652, 1656), governor of Egypt (1652–1656), governor of Baghdad (1656–1659), and governor of Aleppo (1659–1661).
In July 1650, Mehmed Pasha became a vizier and was appointed the governor of Damascus Eyalet of the Ottoman Empire for the first time. On September 9, 1652, he was appointed the governor of Egypt Eyalet, a post he held until May 1656. One month after leaving the post, in June 1656, he was appointed the governor of Damascus a second time, but only held the post for three months, being dismissed in September. That fall, in October or November 1656, he was made the governor of Baghdad Eyalet. In late summer 1659, he became the governor of Aleppo Eyalet, but was dismissed in June 1661 by sultan Mehmed IV for minting too much coinage and thus causing inflation.
