Topal Recep Pasha

Topal Recep Pasha ("Recep Pasha "Lame"; died 18 May 1632) was an Ottoman statesman from the Sanjak of Bosnia,[1] as well as Damat ("bridegroom") to the House of Osman. He served as the Grand Vizier of the Ottoman Empire from 10 February 1632 to 18 May 1632.[2] He was instrumental in lynching the former grand vizier, Hafız Ahmet Pasha. When his brother-in-law Sultan Murad IV realized this, he had Recep Pasha executed on 18 May 1632.[3]
