The details (from wikipedia)


Nigar Hatun (Ottoman Turkish: نکار خاتون‎; died March 1503) was a consort of Sultan Bayezid II of the Ottoman Empire.


Nigar married Bayezid when he was still a prince, and the governor of Amasya. She gave birth to two children, a son, Şehzade Korkut in 1467 or in 1469, and a daughter, Fatma Hatun. With Korkud's birth, she acquired a greater status within the royal household.

According to Turkish tradition, all princes were expected to work as provincial governors as a part of their training. Korkud was first appointed to Tire in 1483. The mother and son, along with his newly formed retinue were provisioned in Grand Vizier Ishak Pasha's palace. Nigar's daily stipend consisted of 50 akçe (silver coin). In late 1490s, she accompanied him to Manisa, and then to Antalya in 1502.


Nigar Hatun died in March 1503, and was buried in her own mausoleum, which she had built in 1502, just a year before her death at Yivliminare Mosque, Antalya.

After her death, Korkud made an endowment in the memory of his mother in a small town named Istanos on the Teke Peninsula. In 1509-10, her daughter Fatma, also made an endowment at Eşrefoğlu Rûmî for the sake of her soul.
