?ehzade Cihangir (9 December 1531 - 27 November 1553) was an Ottoman prince. He was the sixth and youngest child of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent and his wife Hürrem Sultan.


?ehzade Cihangir was born on 9 December 1531 at Topkap? Palace in Istanbul. From birth, he had many health issues and developed a humped back, which kept him out of the competition for the throne and made him very sensitive and impressionable. However, he was the subject of much loving attention of his parents and was very well educated and said to be one of the cleverest of his siblings and half-siblings. He never participated in any campaigns or wars, and never ruled a province (Turkish: sanjak).


On 6 October 1553, during his father's Persian campaign, on which Cihangir accompanied him, Cihangir's beloved elder half-brother and heir apparent to the throne, Mustafa, was executed on the orders of their father. When Cihangir heard this news, he felt great sadness because he knew that his brother had been unjustly killed. Afterward, his health deteriorated and he declined to eat food. About a month later, on 27 November 1553, he died of grief in Konya. After his death, his body was taken to Istanbul where he was buried alongside his brother Mehmed in ?ehzade Mosque.

The Istanbul neighborhood of Cihangir was named after ?ehzade Cihangir when his father had Mimar Sinan build a wooden mosque there in 1559 to commemorate his death. The area, which overlooks the Bosphorous, was one of Cihangir's favorite places. The neighborhood's name comes from this mosque.
