Abstract

This thesis aims to present an analysis of households in the Ottoman politics through rivalry of Husrev Mehmed Pasha and Mehmed Ali Pasha of Egypt. Especially with the adoption of tax-farming system, households of the Ottoman ruling elite began to assume former functions of timar and devşirme systems as well as the palace school. Parallel to this development, the forming or the attachment to a powerful household became a necessity for the Ottoman bureaucrats for both obtaining office in the Ottoman administration and for gathering influence and wealth. Accordingly, intra-elite rivalries of factions formed around households and patronage networks left its mark on the Ottoman politics. One of the most important intra-elite rivalries in the first half of the nineteenth century was the contestation between Husrev Mehmed Pasha and Mehmed Ali Pasha of Egypt. In this period, the Egyptian Question, the Morea Campaign, the military modernization, the Syrian Campaigns of Mehmed Ali, promulgation and implementation of Tanzimat were leading issues in Ottoman politics. Since the rivalry between Husrev Mehmed Pasha and Mehmed Ali Pasha had considerable impact on the course of all these events, this thesis focuses on their interactions to create a better understanding of interconnectedness during the late Ottoman period.
