Ḳalpaḳ

(726 words)

Author(s): Babinger, Fr.
(t.), A Central Asian headdress, which was introduced by the Turks into Europe and became widely distributed there. The word ḳalpaḳ is found in the most diverse Turkish dialects in meanings which are detailed by W. Radloff in his Versuch eines Wörterbuches der Türkdialekte, ii. 268 sq. (cf. also ḳalabaḳ, ii. 234). The Eastern Turkish tilpäk, Djag. East. Turk, tälpäk, Kirg. and Karakirg. telpäk, meaning cap, felt cap (cf. also the French talpack) is certainly related. Cf. thereon Pavet de Courteille, Dict. turk-oriental, p. 408). In its original form the ḳalpaḳ is a cone-shape…

Mentes̲h̲e-Og̲h̲lulari̊

(712 words)

Author(s): Babinger, Fr.
, a petty dynasty in Anatolia. The princes of Mentes̲h̲e first appear in history after the break up of the Seld̲j̲ūk empire. The founder of the family is said to have been a certain Mentes̲h̲e Beg b. Behāʾ al-Dīn Kurdī. He had his court at Mīlās (Mylasa) in the ancient Caria, and not far from it his stronghold Paičīn (Petsona). His descendants also lived in Mīlās until they moved their court to Miletus. The son of Mentes̲h̲e was Urk̲h̲ān Beg, who is known from an inscription on a building in Mīlās and from Ibn Baṭṭūṭa who visited him in 1334 in Mīlās (cf. Ibn Baṭṭūṭa, Voyages, ed. Defrémery, Paris …

Mīk̲h̲āl-og̲h̲lu

(1,080 words)

Author(s): Babinger, Fr.
, an old Ottoman noble family. This family traces its descent to the feudal lord Köse Mīk̲h̲āl ʿAbd Allāh, originally a Greek (cf. F.-A. Geuffroy in Ch. Schefer, Petit traicte de l’origine des Tureqz par Th. Spandouyn Cantacasin, Paris 1696, p. 267: L’ung desdictz Grecz estoit nommé Michali…. Dudict Michali sont descendus les Michalogli), who appears in the reign of ʿOt̲h̲mān I as lord of Chirmenkia (Ḵh̲irmend̲j̲ik) at the foot of Olympus near Edrenos, and later as an ally of the first Ottoman ruler earned great merit for his share in aiding the latter’s expansion (cf.

, daughter of Suleiman the Magnificent. Mihr-i Māh (sometimes also written Mihr-u-māh: cf. Ḳaračelebizāde, Rawḍat ul-Ebrār, p. 458) was the only daughter of Suleimān the Magnificent [q. v., as well as F. Babinger, in Meister der Politik, ii.2, Berlin 1923, p. 39—63]. While still quite young she was married to the grand vizier Rustem Pas̲h̲a (cf. F. Babinger, G. O. W., p. 81 sq.) in the beginning of December 1539 (cf. J. H. Mordtmann, in M. S. O. S., Year xxxii., Part 2, p. 37), but the marriage does not seem to have been a happy one. She used her enormous wealth — St. Ger…

Mezzomorto

(564 words)

Author(s): Babinger, Fr.
, an Ottoman Grand Admiral whose real name was Ḥād̲j̲d̲j̲ī Ḥusein Pas̲h̲a. Ḥād̲j̲d̲j̲ī Ḥusein Pas̲h̲a, known as Mezzomorto, i. e. “half-dead” because he was severely wounded in a naval battle, came from the Balearic Islands, if A. de la Motraye’s statement ( Voyages, The Hague 1727, i. 206) that he was born in Mallorca is right. He probably spent his youth sailing with corsairs on the seas off the North African coast. He first appears as a desperate pirate in the summer of 1682 in the Barbary States. When France was preparing to deal a …

When the latter died in 936 (1529), Merke…

Mentes̲h̲e-eli

(218 words)

Author(s): Babinger, Fr.
, a little principality in Anatolia. The boundaries of the territory of the Mentes̲h̲e-og̲h̲lu’s [q. v.] are given by Müned̲j̲d̲j̲im-bas̲h̲i̊ (cf. Fr. Babinger, G.O.W., p. 234 sq.) in his Ṣaḥāʾif al-Ak̲h̲bār (Stambul 1285) as marked by Mug̲h̲la, Balāṭ, Boz-Üyük, Mīlās, Bard̲j̲īn, Marīn, Čīne, Ṭawās, Bornāz, Makrī, Göd̲j̲iñiz, Foča and Mermere. They thus correspond approximately to those of the ancient Caria. The origin of the name is uncertain, but it can confidently be asserted that the opinion, presumably first put forward by F. Meninski ( Lexicon, iv. 737) and till quite rec…

(480 words)

Author(s): Babinger, Fr.
, Ottoman statesman and historian. Aḥmad b. Ibrāhīm, known as Resmi came from Rethymno (Turk. Resmo; hence his epithet?) in Crete and was of Greek descent (cf. Hammer-Purgstall, viii, 202). He was born in 1112/1700 and came in 1146/1733 to Istanbul, where he was educated, married a daughter of the Reʾīs Efendi Taʾūḳd̲j̲i Muṣṭafā and entered the service of the Porte.

Kirmāstī

(416 words)

Author(s): Babinger, Fr.

The town lies on both banks of the Edrenos Čay (Rhyndacus), now called the Mustafa Kemal Paşa Çay. The origin of the name, often wrongly written Kirmāsli̊, which points to a Greek *Κερμαστὴ or *Κρεμαστὴ, is uncertain, nor is it known what ancient town was here. Perhaps the Kremastis in the Troas (cf. Pauly-Wissowa, ii, 743) mentioned in Xenophon, Hist , iv, 8, is to be connected wi…

Author(s): Babinger, Fr.
(Kesteli, Kestelli), Muṣliḥ al-dīn Muṣṭafā, théologien et juriste ḥanafite ottoman (m. 901/1495-6). Il naquit dans un village proche de Bursa, Kestel (latin Castellum), où il construisit une mosquée au cours de sa carrière, et c’est de ce village que vient sa nisba de Kestel(l)ī, ou, plus pompeusement, Ḳasṭallānī.

Baliabadra

(1,668 words)

Author(s): Babinger, Fr.
, (nom turc de Pátrai, Patras), quatrième grande ville de la Grèce continentale, et la plus grande de la péninsule de Morée, située sur le golfe du même nom, à l’Ouest de l’entrée du golfe de Corinthe (turc: Kordos [ q.v.]), capitale du nome d’Achaïe, siège d’un évêché. Elle avait environ 85 000 habitants en 1951. Le nom Baliabadra vient de παλαιαὶ Πάτραι ou plutôt παλαιἀ Πάτρα (Patra est même de nos jours le nom de la ville dans la conversation), c’est-à-dire le Vieux Pátra(i), apparemment parce que depuis le XIVe siècle, le Nouveau Pátra(i) désignait la forteresse sous la protectio…

Niyāzī

(871 words)

Author(s): Babinger, Fr.
, poète et mystique ottoman. S̲h̲ams al-dīn Meḥmed, connu sous les noms de Miṣrī Efendi, S̲h̲ayk̲h̲ Miṣrī, et le mak̲h̲laṣ Niyāzī, est originaire d’Aspūzī, l’ancienne résidence d’été de Malaṭya (cf. Ewliyā Čelebi, IV, 15; voir Moltke, Reisebriefe, 349), où son père était un derviche naḳs̲h̲bandī. Il naquit en 1027/1617-18. L’indication qu’on trouve çà et là, d’après laquelle il serait né à Sog̲h̲anli̊, n’est pas exacte. Son père lui enseigna la doctrine de sa confrérie; il se rendit ensuite à Diyārbekr en 1048/1638, plus tard, à Mārdīn, où il étudia trois ans…

Ramaḍān Og̲h̲ullari̊

(709 words)

Author(s): Babinger, Fr.
, famille de petits princes anatoliens. L’histoire la plus ancienne des Ramaḍān-Og̲h̲ullari̊ est, comme celle de la plupart des petits begs ( mülūk-i tewāʾif) environnée d’obscurité. D’après la tradition, cette famille de Türkmènes vint à l’époque d’Ertog̲h̲rul de l’Asie Centrale en Anatolie et elle s’y fixa dans la région d’Adana où elle fonda son pouvoir. Son domaine comprenait les districts d’Adana, Sīs, Ayās, une partie du domaine des ¶ Türkmènes de Warsaḳ, Tarsūs, etc. On place dans les années 780-819/1379-1416 le règne du plus ancien prince connu de cette d…

(872 words)

Author(s): Babinger, Fr.
(m. 1023/1614), grand-vizir ottoman d’origine chrétienne, né d’après les uns à Gümüld̲j̲ine [ q.v. au Suppl.] (aujourd’hui Komotim, en Thrace, Grèce), d’après les autres à Drama. Selon certaines sources (p. ex. Baudier et Grimestone, dans Knolles), il était le fils d’un prêtre grec; d’après d’autres (Naʿīmā, Taʾrīk̲h̲, 283) il était arnaʾud d̲j̲insi̊, c’est-à-dire d’origine albanaise. Il vint assez tôt à Istanbul, passa deux ans dans le Vieux Serāy comme teberdār (hallebardier) et le quitta comme čaws̲h̲. Grâce à la faveur de son ami intime, Meḥmed Ag̲h̲a, il parvint r…

Piyāle Pas̲h̲a

(916 words)

Author(s): Babinger, Fr.
, grand-amiral ottoman, originaire, d’après St. Gerlach ( Tage-Buch Francfort-surle-Main 1674, 448), de Tolna (Hongrie); il aurait été le fils d’un cordonnier d’origine vraisemblablement croate. Presque tous les récits contemporains confirment cette origine (cf. la troisième série des Relazioni degli ambasciatori Veneti al Senato, publ. par E. Albèri, Florence 1844-5 et en particulier III/2, 243, 357, III/3, 294, 418). Conformément aux habitudes de l’époque, on fit après coup, de son père, un Musulman en lui donnant le nom de ʿAbd al-Raḥmān (cf. F. Babinger, dans Litteraturdenkm…

Une étroite amitié le lia au premier de ces deux hommes. Il entra dans le corps des ʿulemāʾ, fut nommé en 973/1565 müderris à Gallipoli, puis investi de différentes fo…

ʿÖmer Efendi

(371 words)

Author(s): Babinger, Fr.
, historien ottoman qui ¶ d’après la tradition populaire se serait d’abord appelé Elkazović ou Čaušević, et était originaire de Bosna-Novi (Bosanski Novi). De sa vie, on sait seulement qu’il exerçait les fonctions de ḳāḍī dans son pays natal lorsque se déroulèrent sur le sol bosniaque de violents combats entre les Impériaux et les troupes de Ḥekīm-Og̲h̲lu ʿAlī Pas̲h̲a (1150/1737). ʿÖmer Efendi écrivit alors, dans une langue simple et aisée, un récit vivant, extrêmement intéressant au point de vue de l’histoire sociale, des événe…
