Köse Halil Pasha (Beardless Halil Pasha in Turkish; died 1715), also known as Khalil Pasha al-Kawsaj (Thin-bearded Halil Pasha in Arabic), was an Ottoman statesman who served several high-level roles in the Ottoman Empire's administration, including serving as Defterdar (financial minister; 1692/93–1694/95 and 1695/96–1699) and the Ottoman governor of Bosnia Eyalet (1699–1702), Erzurum Eyalet (1703–04), Van Eyalet (1704–06), Basra Eyalet (1706–07, and again 1707–08), Sidon Eyalet (1708–1710), and Egypt Eyalet (1710–11).[1][2][3]

As the governor of Egypt, he served during a turbulent time and was overthrown by the local (Mamluk) beys in 1711 after a small civil war.[4]
