From the founding of the Ottoman dynasty to its fabled territorial conquests, the legacy of the thirty-six Ottoman sultans has undeniably left its mark throughout history. Coupled with their military prowess, artistic patronage, and expert political command, the sultans’ clothes represented the ultimate in status and wealth. With gold thread, fur linings, diamond studding, and vibrant colors, their clothing was as decadent as—if not more so than—the lifestyle these rulers led. Featuring exquisite portraits and lavishly decorated caftans, this large-format volume beautifully presents imagery that speaks to the magnificence of the Ottoman Empire and its legendary sultans.
