He is the Ottoman Sultan who had to assume the throne at a young age. Rather naive and inexperienced. He feels crushed under the weight of the throne in the early days of his reign. He takes refuge in God at such times. He believes in mystical signs and trusts his intuition. At times, he is compassionate and at other times, he is not afraid to show his wrath. According to the law, he is supposed to order the killing of his younger brother Mustafa, but he forgives him. On the other hand, he doesn't show mercy to those who undermine him. He has quite an inquisitive nature and is eager to learn. He has numerous books in his library. His favorite among them is "Suleimanname," the epopee of his ancestor Sultan Suleiman's victories... He has a secret garden in the palace, known to very few. This garden is his most private haven where he finds this inner peace stripped from all his troubles. He is a passionate lover. He falls in love with the girl in a painting, pillaged by Ottoman pirates during a raid: Kösem. The seeds of a great love are sown the moment Ahmed seeds that painting.
