Fehime Sultan

Fehime Sultan (1875–1929), was an Ottoman princess.


Born 1875 in Istanbul (formerly Constantinople), Fehime was the daughter of Ottoman Sultan Murad V (1840–1904) and his fourth wife the Georgian Meyliservet Haseki Kadın Efendi, receiving her education in the palace. Like her father, Fehime was interested in the arts. Amongst circles her nickname was Kelebek Sultan (Butterfly Princess), because of her outlandish art and expensive clothing styles.

Fehime Sultan married Damad Ali Galib Pasha (1871 - 26 June 1950) at Yıldız Palace, Istanbul, on 12 September 1901 but they were divorced in 1908. She was later married to Damat Mahmud Behçet Pasha.


After the abolition of the Caliphate by the Parliament of the Republic of Turkey in 1924, Fehime went into exile in Nice, France. Separated from her husband and step-children, Fehime Sultan died on September 15, 1929 of tuberculosis and was buried in Nice.

A dress attributed to her is preserved in the Topkapi Palace.[1]
