Book Description Oneworld/Viva Books Private Limited, 2009. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Description: Beshir Agha (c. 1657?1764) was the most powerful Chief Harem Eunuch in the history of the Ottoman Empire. Enslaved in his native Ethiopia as boy, then castrated in Ehypt, Beshir Agha became one of hundreds of East African eunuchs who inhabited the imperial place?s enormous harem. Rising through the ranks of the harem hierarchy, he eventually oversaw the education of crown princes and harem women while choosing and deposing a long series of grand viziers. The founder of many mosques, Qur?an schools, Sufi lodges and libraries, he was fundamental in shaping the religious and intellectual profile of the Ottoman state. This captivating study explores the role of Chief Eunuch, examining Beshir Agha?s astonishing ascent to the position and the vast authority he wielded once in office.
