Hayme Hatun (Ottoman Turkish: خیمه خاتون‎), also known as Hayme Ana (Mother Hayme), was the grandmother of Osman I, founder of the Ottoman Empire and the mother of Ertuğrul Gazi, the leader of the Kayı clan of the Oghuz Turks.

Name[edit]

Her name appears as Haymana, Hayme Hatun, Hayme Sultan, Ayva Ana and Ayvana. The name Hayme Ana seems to be an obvious transference of the topographic term haymana, or "prairie", into a personal name.

Burial place[edit]

Hayme Ana's last resting place is at Çarşamba, a village near Domaniç, in a pasture area, close to a route connecting the lowlands east of Bursa with Tavşanlı. In 1892 Abdul Hamid II saw the recovery of the tomb of Hayme Ana.[1] Abdul Hamid's interest on the renovation of his ancestor' resting places has clear political implications, and both recoveries may be equal fraudulent.

Family[edit]

She was of Turkish descent and the belonged to a Turkmen family. She was the grandmother of Osman I, the founder of the Ottoman Empire. Together with Suleyman Shah Hayme had four sons:

  • Emir Ertuğrul Han Gazi, Emir of Söğüt (c. 1198 - c. 1281)
  • Dündar Bey (c. 1210 - c. 1298)
  • Gündoğdu Bey (? - ?)
  • Sungurtekin Bey (? - ?)
