This article is about the Ottoman princess Esma Sultan, daughter of Sultan Abdülaziz. For other uses, see Esma Sultan (disambiguation page).

Esma Sultan (1873–1899) was the daughter of Ottoman Sultan Abdülaziz by Neşerek (Nesrin) Haseki Kadın Efendi.

Esma Sultan was born on March 21, 1873 in Dolmabahçe Palace in Constantinople[1][2] to Sultan Abdülaziz's fifth wife Haseki Nesrin Kadınefendi (1848–1876) as the second child. She had an older brother, Shehzade Mehmed Şevket Efendi (June 5, 1872 - October 22, 1899). She was soon followed by another sibling, Emine Sultan (August 24, 1874 - January 29, 1920).

Following her father Sultan Abdülaziz's deposition on May 30, 1876 and death a few days later, she was taken into the harem of Sultan Abdülhamid II at the age of three.

She was married on April 20, 1889 at the age of 16 to Damad Çerkes Mehmed Pasha (1856 - May 24, 1909) in Yıldız Palace. Her husband was a general in the Ottoman Army and first aide-de-camp to Abdülhamid II. From this marriage came four sons and one daughter:

  1. Sultanzade Hasan Bedreddin Bey Efendi (1890 - January 29, 1909)
  2. Sultanzade Hüseyin Hayreddin Bey Efendi (1890 - Istanbul 1956)
  3. Fatma Sıdıka Hanım Sultan (1894 - 1894)
  4. Sultanzade Saadeddin Mehmed Bey Efendi, (June 14, 1895 - Beirut 1976)
  5. Sultanzade Abdullah Bey Efendi (1899 - 1899)

Esma Sultan died on May 7, 1899 and was interred in Murad V Mausoleum at Yeni Cami in Eminönü, Constantinople.[3]
