At a Glance

As we examine the Harem of the Ottoman Empire, we will discuss why the Sultans had a harem, how the women were chosen, and where they came from. We will also talk about the rights the women had and the hierarchy within the harem. For those that outlived their sultan, we will explore their lives after leaving the harem.
