The list of the Valide Sultans of the Ottoman Empire presented below does not include the complete list of the mothers of the Ottoman Sultans. Valide Sultan was the title of the queen mother of the reigning sultan. The mothers who died before her sons' accession to throne never assumed the title of Valide Sultan (like Devlet Hatun, Gülbahar Sultan, Hürrem Sultan, Hatice Muazzez Sultan, Emine Mihrişah Sultan, Rabia Sultan, Tirimüjgan Sultan, Gülcemal Sultan, and Gülüstü Münire). On the other hand, there were step-mothers who were not the biological mother but still assumed the title as adoptive Valide Sultans (like Ayşe Hatun, Fülane Haseki and Rahime Perestu).
