The Grand Queen Mother Sultana Safiye


The Grand Queen Mother Sultana Safiye

She is Sultan Ahmed´s grandmother. Of Venetian origin, she comes from a wealthy family. She is very clever and far-sighted. All her gestures, even her eyebrows' raising and her lips twisting are calculated. She dominates the art of rhetoric with her wit. She always says the most accurate thing and has the final say. The words coming out of her lips can be silky smooth and heart-warming, or they can be sharp and venomous. Coming from a rich family, she has very elite tastes. She doesn´t wear the same dress twice. She likes expensive jewelry, having coffee, and loves to watch the ships passing by the Bosphorus through her binoculars decorated with precious stones. She has extensive life experience from what she has been through herself, the incidents she has witnessed and what she has read. She is in control of all intrigues in the Harem and the state. She personally designs and implements some of the most dangerous of these machinations. She is realistic and doesn't let herself get lost after chasing dreams. It is almost impossible to fool her. With one look, she reads the heart of the person in front of her, feeling their true self. At the same time, she can hold a mean grudge. She never forgives the people who try to damage her in any way. She loves money and the power that money brings. She is arrogant but this is not a vain arrogance. She worked hard to become Sultana Safiye and attain her unique position. She places a great deal of importance on loyalty. She is able to influence anyone she wants to impress, man or woman. She is irresistible. But it is hard work to win her love. A while ago, she has corresponded with Britain's Queen Elizabeth and even became friends with her exchanging gifts. One of these gifts is a cat sent by the Queen to Sultana Safiye. Safiye named this cat "Elizabeth" and keeps it near her at all times; she loves and cares about it very much. Safiye is a real queen!
