    Hurrem Sultan: the Woman Who Changed Ottoman Queenship

    12/12/2020 Duración: 19min

    (Elizabeth) In the Ottoman Empire, royal women were to be neither seen nor heard - after giving birth to the Sultan's child, they were supposed to recede into the background, focused on raising that potential heir.

And we don't even know her real name. In this episode, join Elizabeth as she examines the history of the "Joyful One."    Click here for tips for Teaching with Podcasts? Or here for some FH Merch!
