The Magnificent Century: Kosem - Coming Soon;
Haseki Kösem Mahpeyker Valide Sultan (1590 – 3 September 1651) - was one of the most powerful women in Ottoman history. Favourite consort and later wife of Ottoman Sultan Ahmed I. She achieved power and influenced the politics of the Ottoman Empire through her husband Sultan Ahmed I, then through her sons Murad IV and Ibrahim I ”the Mad” and finally through her minor grandson Mehmed IV. She was Valide Sultan (queen mother of the Sultan) from 1623 to 1651, when her sons Murad IV and Ibrahim I and her grandson Mehmed IV reigned as Ottoman sultans. She was a prominent figure during the Sultanate of Women. She was official regent twice and was thereby one of two women to have been formal regents of the Ottoman Empire.
