Sultan Ibrahim I was born in November, 5, 1615. His father is Sultan
Ahmed I and his mother is Maypeyker Kosem Sultan. He came to throne
following the death of his older brother Murad IV. Ibrahim was so
depressed with the palace intrigues and his brother's unexpected
death that he did not want to believe that he became the Sultan.
He could not have been believed that his brother was death until
he saw his dead body. Sultan Ibrahim was suffering from neurasthenia
and he had nervous attacks. He was the only crown prince when he
was ascended, when his son Mehmed (Mehmed IV) was born a public
rejoicing was organised. Ibrahim was a merciful sovereign and he
declared firmans to hinder the famine and poverty. But, he was dominated
by his mother. His reign can be considered as the reign of Kosem
Sultana. In August, 1648 Sultan Ibrahim was strangled. When Ibrahim
came to throne he was in his 25th year. As a prince he was so obsessed
that he would be killed because of intrigues and he became a neurotic.
His grand vizier Kemankes Mustafa Pasha administrated the empire,
he signed the treaty of Kasr-i Sirin with Iran and he restored the
financial problems. He renovated the navy as well.
