Eldest Member Of Ottoman Royal Family Dies In Istanbul
Fatma Neslişah Osmanoğlu, or Neslişah Sultan, the eldest member of the Ottoman royal family, passed away at the age of 91, Today’s Zaman reported.
Neslişah Sultan, a paternal granddaughter of the last Ottoman Caliph Abdülmecid II and maternal granddaughter of the last Ottoman Sultan and Caliph Mehmed VI Vahdettin, died early Monday, April 2 in Istanbul.
She assumed the title of eldest surviving member of the Ottoman dynasty after the death of Osman Ertuğrul Osmanoğlu in 2009.
Born in 1921, Neslişah Sultan was 3 years old when she left Istanbul and went to France after the caliphate was abolished in 1924 by the newly founded Turkish Republic and members of the Ottoman royal family were expelled from the country.
In 1940, she married Prince Muhammad Abdel Moneim, the son of Egypt’s last khedive, Abbas Hilmi II. She thus became an Egyptian princess by marriage.
