Hayranidil Kadın (Ottoman Turkish: خیران دل قادین; 2 November 1846 – 26 November 1895; meaning 'The excellent heart') was the second wife of Sultan Abdulaziz of the Ottoman Empire, and the mother of last caliph of the Muslim world Abdulmejid II.
Hayranıdil married Abdulaziz in 1861 in the Dolmabahçe Palace, just before his accession to the throne. After his accession, she was given the title of "Second Consort". Six years after the marriage, on 14 February 1867, she gave birth to her first child, a daughter, Nazime Sultan. One year later, on 29 May 1868, she gave birth to her second child, a son, Şehzade Abdulmejid (future Caliph Abdulmejid II) in the Beylerbeyi Palace.
Hayranıdil was celebrated as the most beautiful woman of the imperial household.
Abdulaziz was deposed by his ministers on 30 May 1876, his nephew Murad V became the Sultan. He was transferred to Feriye Palace the next day. Hayranıdil, and other women of Abdulaziz's entourage didn't want to leave the Dolmabahçe Palace. So they were grabbed by hand and were sent out to the Feriye Palace. In the process, they were searched from head to toe and everything of value was taken from them. On 4 June 1876, Abdulaziz died under mysterious circumstances.
Hayranıdil Kadın died on 26 November 1895 in the Feriye Palace, Ortaköy at the age of forty-nine, and was buried in the mausoleum of Sultan Mahmud II, located at Divan Yolu street, Istanbul.
