Şehzade Abdullah (1522–1525) was an Ottoman prince (şehzade), as the son of Ottoman Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent.[1] According to some sources, his mother was Hürrem Sultan.[2] In other sources it's said that he was born by Mahidevran Sultan.[3] He was born in 1522 in Topkapi Palace, the Ottoman Empire, and died at the age of three due to a disease in 1525 in Istanbul. If his mother was indeed Hürrem Sultan, he would be most likely Mihrimah Sultan's twin given the year of their births.
