Comments[edit]

Shabatai Tzvi[edit]

It seems appropriate to include the information regarding the case of Shabatai Tzvi [Sabbatai_Zevi http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabbatai_Zevi#Sabbatai_adopts_Islam] Considering the case of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mehmed_IV#The_Quaker_Mary_Fisher has been included to illustrate Sultans tolerance the case of Sabbatai_Zevi should be mentioned to illustrate its limits.

Links to Ibrahim[edit]

Not quite sure how to change, or in fact start a new page detailing him, but a links to Ibrahim in text & 'ottoman sultans' box at the bottom of the page are faulty and links to a very different Ibrahim to the one intended.

  • Well spotted! The correct precursor is his father, Ibrahim I, definitely not the Biblical Patriarch - now fixed. Fastifex 13:09, 24 April 2006 (UTC)

Page in transition[edit]

I am embarking upon a mission to seriously upgrade this page and get it on the radar. I invite everyone to help out. I am leaving the "Accomplishments" section there until I can incorporate all the information into a better-written/formatted version. Wikster72 02:51, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

Origins of his favourite Rabia Gulnis Sultan[edit]

This subject is controversial and this controversy should be reflected in this article. It is agreed that she came as a slave from Crete taken from the city of Rethymnon (Resmo in Turkish). However, some claim that she was of a Venetian family settled in Crete annd others claim that she was of local Greek origin. Noyder (talk) 00:39, 5 October 2009 (UTC)


Fazıl Ahmet[edit]

I editted the original text :His reign is notable for a brief revival of Ottoman fortunes led by the infamous Grand Vizier, Mehmed Köprülü. Köprülü regained the Aegean islands from Venice and fought successful campaigns against Transylvania (1664) and Poland (1670–1674). Actually Köprülü Mehmet died in 1661 and the most operations cited above were conducted by his son Fazıl Ahmet. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 05:37, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

False link[edit]

The link given in notes about "Natalia Yakovenko."Essays on History on Ukraine. From the Earliest Times until the End of the 18th Century". 1997." is not good anymore. --Bluescountryboy (talk) 21:15, 16 January 2011 (UTC)
