EDITORS COMMENTS
Sultan Abdul Hamid II: The Last Absolute Ruler of the Ottoman Empire (1842-1918) This photograph captures the majesty and historical significance of Sultan Abdul Hamid II, the last Ottoman Sultan to rule with absolute power. The image, taken in 1901, portrays Abdul Hamid II in imperial attire, adorned with gold and jewels, exuding an air of regal authority. During his reign from 31 August 1876 until his deposition on 27 April 1909, Abdul Hamid II oversaw a period of decline in the power and extent of the Ottoman Empire. The Sultan's rule was marked by a series of unsuccessful attempts to modernize the empire and maintain its territorial integrity in the face of external pressures. The parliament, which was established during Abdul Hamid II's rule in 1876, was suspended multiple times as the Sultan sought to maintain his absolute power. The photograph, taken during the Second Constitutional Era, may have been taken to demonstrate the Sultan's continued control over the empire despite the emergence of parliamentarianism. The Ottoman Empire, which once stretched from Hungary to Egypt and from the Persian Gulf to Albania, was in a state of decline. The empire's territorial losses, coupled with internal instability, led to the eventual deposition of Abdul Hamid II in 1909. Despite the challenges he faced, Abdul Hamid II remains an important figure in Turkish history. His reign marked the end of the classical Ottoman period and the beginning of the modern Turkish Republic. The photograph serves as a reminder of the historical significance of this period and the majesty of the last absolute ruler of the Ottoman Empire.
