Gülüstü Kadın Efendi

Gülüstü Kadın Efendi (Turkish pronunciation: [ɟylysˈty]) or Gülistan Münire Kadınefendi (or Gülistü) (ca. 1831–1861) was a Circassian wife (1854) of Ottoman Sultan Abdülmecid I.


She was of Circassian ancestry. She had a daughter, Mediha Sultan (born 30 July 1856), and a son Mehmed VI (born 14 January / 2 February 1861 - died 15 May / 16 May 1926), who became the thirty-sixth and last Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, reigning from 1918 to 1922. She died just three months after giving birth to her son.

Burial place

Her burial place is located at the Gülüstü Münire Sultan Türbe[1] in front of the mihrab of Fatih Camii in Fatih, Istanbul. Since Mehmed VI became sultan long after Gülüstü's death, she was never a Valide Sultan.[2]
