Dilfirib Kad?n (Ottoman Turkish: ? ‎; c. 1890 - c. 1952) was the fifth wife of Sultan Mehmed V of the Ottoman Empire.[1]

Early life

Of Circassian origin, Dilfirib was born in 1890 in Istanbul.[2][3]


Dilfirib married Mehmed in 1907 in the Veliahd Palace.[2] Dilfirib remained childless.[3] On 27 April 1909, after Mehmed's accession to the throne,[4] she was given the title of "Ba? Ikbal". In October 1909, she was given the title of "Dördüncü Kad?n".[5]

Safiye Ünüvar, a teacher at the Palace School, who met her in 1915, described her being young and well educated.[6][7]

On 30 May 1918, Nazikeda met with the Empress Zita of Bourbon-Parma in the harem of Y?ld?z Palace, when the latter visited Istanbul with her husband Emperor Charles I of Austria. With her beauty, she won the Empress's appreciation.[8]

Dilfirib and Nazperver Kad?n, Mehmed's fourth wife were with him,[9][10] when he died on 3 July 1918.[11]

Last years and death

After Sultan Mehmed's death in 1918, she remained in the Dolmabahçe Palace. When the imperial family went into exile in 1924, she moved in her villa located in Erenköy, where she died in 1952.[1][3]
