Mehmed Ferid Pasha (Turkish: Avlonyalı Ferit Paşa or Avlonyalı Mehmet Ferit Paşa) (1851, Yanya (Ioannina) - 1914, Sanremo) was an Ottoman statesman of ethnic Albanian background. He served as Grand Vizier of the Ottoman Empire from 15 January 1903 until 22 July 1908, at the time when the sultan restored the 1876 Constitution following the Young Turk Revolution. Other than Ottoman Turkish he spoke the Arabic, French, Italian, Albanian, and Greek languages.[1][2] He was the fraternal brother of the modern Albanian state founder Ismail Qemal bey Vlora. His third son Jalaluddin Pasha married Princess Atiyetullah Khanum Efendi, the oldest daughter of Abbas II of Egypt.
