BiographyEdit

Devlet Hatun was the twelfth[2] and last wife of Ottoman Sultan Bayezid I and the mother of Bayezid's successor, Mehmed I. Her name in her vakfîyya is registered as Daulât bint-i Abd'Allah. This implies that the mother of Mehmed I was of non-Turkish origin.[1] Although the sign at her tomb (see image in next section) says that Devlet was the daughter of a Germiyanid (i.e. Turkic) prince, she was ethnically of non-Turkish origin.[1] Since both Devlet Hâtun and Devletşah Hatun died in 1414, she is frequently confused with Devletşâh Hâtun, the daughter of Süleyman of Germiyan.[citation needed]

Devlet Hatun died on 23 January 1414[2] and was buried at the Devlet Hatun Tomb in Bursa.
