ABSTRACT

In Ottoman Empire, İlmiye and Turkish noblemen were appointed as Vezir-i A’zam. Starting with Zağanos Paşa, however, government officials from Devşirme were appointed as Vezir-i A’zam. Zağanos Paşa was a government official from Devşirme, making huge contributions to the development of Ottoman Empire as a teacher and political companion to Mehmed II. Not only did he support Mehmed II in Battle(Siege) of Constantinople, but he also led the battle successfully. After being dismissed from the position of Vezir-i A’zam, he led an expedition to Mora and Trabzon successfully. It was Zağanos Paşa that opened the era of Devşirme Vezirler devri in Ottoman Empire. The government officials from Devşirme won many conquest wars along with Padishahs of Ottoman Empire, turning Ottoman Empire into a global empire. The present study thus set out to shed new light on the life of Zağanos Paşa that was from Devşirme.
