A Dynasty at the Threshold of Extinction: Mehmed III, Ahmed I, Mustafa I and the 17th-Century Ottoman Political Crisis

This article examines some of the reports written by Francesco Contarini, the Venetian bailo served in Istanbul between 1602 and 1604, within the context of the early 17th-century Ottoman dynastic and political crisis. These unpublished documents not only contain critical information on Sultan Mehmed III, his sons Ahmed I and Mustafa I as well as these sultans’ mothers, but also reveal that the Ottoman dynasty endured a serious threat of extinction during the early reign of Ahmed I.
