Ḥusayn Pas̲h̲a
(1,170 words)

( Küčük Ḥüseyin Pas̲h̲a ) (1758-1803), Ottoman Ḳapudān Pas̲h̲a of Circassian origin. Since he was 46 years old at his death in 1803, he must have been born in 1758. He was presented to Sultan Muṣṭafā III by the Silāḥdār Ibrāhīm Pas̲h̲a, in 1181/1767-8. Although it has been asserted that he was the foster-brother of Selīm III ( K̲h̲arīṭa-i Ḳapudānān-i deryā , 105), it seems more likely that his first duty in the palace was in the service of Prince Meḥmed (b. 1767), the brother of Selīm III (Wāṣif, Taʾrīk̲h̲ , MS Ali Emiri (Millet Kütüp.) 609, fol. 197a; D̲j̲ewdet, Taʾrīk̲h̲, vii, 266).
