Personal lifeEdit

In March 1854, a messenger from Istanbul announced the betrothal of Ibrahim Pasha to Münire Sultan, daughter of Abdulmejid I and his wife Verdicenan Kadın. Large public celebrations were proclaimed and the viceroy was reported to be highly pleased with the news.[3][4] Ibrahim Pasha sent her a solitaire ring, solitaire earrings and a briolette as her betrothal gifts. There were also all sorts of perfumes covered with transparent lids and bowls of musk and mastic. There were crystal carafes containing syrup and porcelain vases from Saxony holding all sorts of preserves, and finally there were both eastern and western candies on plates of Chinese porcelain.[5] Verdicenan Kadın gave some of these perfumes and morsels of food to other princesses, and also distributed them equally to the people in her entourage.[6][7] The engagement took place in the Şemsipaşa Palace.[8]

The marriage took place on 10 August 1854 in at the Baltalimanı sahilhane, Istanbul.[9] The marriage was consummated on 31 July 1857.[10] The couple were given a palace located at Findiklı as their residence.[11]

Ibrahim had three consorts, Nasrin Qadin (died 1871), mother of Princess Emina Ilhamy, born in 1858, Jeshmi Ahu Qadin (died 1905), mother of Princess Zeynab Ilhamy, born in 1859, and Ashiq Bayran Qadin (died 1878), mother of Tevhide Ilhamy, born in 1860.[12] The eldest, Emine, married Tewfik Pasha, eldest son of Isma'il Pasha, and the younger, Zeynab, married Mahmud Hamdi Pasha, fifth son of Isma'il Pasha.[13]

DeathEdit

Prince Ibrahim died on 9 September 1860 when his boat capsized while crossing the Bosphorus, near Bebek Palace, at what is now Bebek Bay.[14][15]
