Dündar Ali Osman (born 30 December 1930), also known as Dündar Ali Osman Osmanoğlu (Ottoman Turkish: دوندار علي عثمان‎), is the 45th Head of the fallen House of Osman, which ruled the Ottoman Empire from 1299 to 1922. The monarchy was abolished in 1922, with the modern Republic of Turkey replacing it. All the members of the Ottoman dynasty were declared traitors of the nation and exiled. Had he been the reigning Sultan he would have been Grand Sultan Dündar I.

He is a great-grandson of Sultan Abdul Hamid II.[2]
