How Suleiman the Magnificent Connects to Şehzade Bayezid
Show More

Şehzade Bayezid (1525 – September 25, 1561) was an Ottoman prince (Turkish: şehzade) as son of Sultan Suleiman I (also known as the Suleiman the Lawgiver or the Suleiman the Magnificent), 10th Ottoman Sultan, and his legal wife Hürrem Sultan. He unsuccessfully revolted to win the throne of the Ottoman Empire. After the death of three of Suleiman's sons, only Bayezid and Selim were alive. By the course of the 1550s, when Suleiman was already in his 60s, a protracted competition for the throne between Bayezid and Selim was evident. Angered by Bayezid's disobedience stemming from around the same years, Bayezid had fallen in disfavour with his father as opposed to his brother Selim (who would eventually succeed as Selim II). After a staged rebellion, which was suppressed in 1559 by Selim (who was further aided by Suleiman and Sokollu Mehmet Pasha) he fled to the neighbouring Safavid Empire, where he was wholeheartedly and lavishly received by Tahmasp I. However, in 1561, upon continuous insistment of Suleiman throughout the entire period of his exile, and by the means of several large payments, Tahmasp allowed Bayezid to be executed by an Ottoman executioner.
