Tuman Bay I was about forty years old when he was selected as Sultan.[1] Although he was popular before becoming a Sultan, on becoming Sultan he soon lost that popularity due to his cruel measures, which was manifested in condemning one of the princes to death by hanging for alleged conspiracy.

He was overthrown and succeeded by Al-Ashraf Qansuh al-Ghawri.
