Trebizond Eyalet (Ottoman Turkish: ایالت طربزون; Eyālet-i Ṭrabzōn)[2] was an eyalet of the Ottoman Empire.

Established in 1461,[3] it remained a primarily Christian region into the 17th century, well after the rest of Anatolia had been converted to Islam.[3] Its reported area in the 19th century was 10,507 square miles (27,210 km2).[4]
