Ertugrul Osman - the would-be sultan known in Turkey as the "last Ottoman" - has died in Istanbul at the age of 97. Osman would have been sultan of the Ottoman Empire had Turkey's modern republic not been created in the 1920s. As the last surviving grandson of Sultan Abdul-Hamid II, he would have been known as his Imperial Highness Prince Shehzade Ertugrul Osman Effendi. Born in Istanbul in 1912, Osman spent most of his years living modestly in New York.

Ertugrul Osman by Darius Kadivar

by Nadine Sultan on

This article reported by Darius Kadivar from news reports published from Sept. 24, 2009 is incorrect.

Ertugrul Osman of Turkey was not the last surviving grandson of Sultan Abdulhamid II.  Today, there is still a living grandson by a son of the late Sultan Abdulhamid II.  Those interested by this topic are kindly invited to visit the website: http://www.nadinevalidesultan.org
