Sultan Hatun[1] (Ottoman Turkish: ‎), was a Turkish princess, the daughter of Süleyman ?ah Bey, the ruler of the Germiyanids. She was the wife of Sultan Bayezid I of the Ottoman Empire.[2][3][4]


Sultan Hatun was born to an Anatolian prince, Süleyman ?ah Bey, the ruler of the Germiyanids.[5] Her mother Mutahhara Hatun, affectionately called 'Abide' (the adoring one),[6] was a granddaughter of Mawl?n? Jalal al-Din Muhammad Rumi, the founder of the Sufi order of Mevlevis, through his son Sultan Walad.[5] She had two brothers, Ilyas Pasha, and H?z?r Pasha.[7]


In 1378, Süleyman ?ah, sent an envoy to sultan Murad I, proposing a marriage between his daughter, Sultan Hatun and crown prince Bayezid. He wished to protect his territory against the invasions of the Karamanids, had proposed this marriage and had offered, as a dowry to his daughter, Kütahya, his seat of power and several other Germiyan cities. Murad agreed and acquired most of the principality.[8]

The chroniclers testify of the riches that was displayed during the wedding feast.[8] Envoys from the Karamanids, Hamido?u, Mentesheo?lu, Saruhanids, Isfendiyarids and an envoy of the Mamluk sultan were all present at the wedding feast. The chroniclers describe the valuable presents brought by Gazi Evrenos, the Ottoman marcher lord (ak?nc? uç beyi) in Europe, to the wedding, which included among other items cloths of gold, two hundred gold and silver trays filled with gold florins.[9]

During the wedding feast, the envoy of Hüseyin Bey, the ruler of the Hamidili principality, offered to sell his beylik to Murad. When, afterwards, Murad came to Kütahya, Hüseyin Bey sent his envoy to conclude the formalities of the sale.[10]
