Mehmet, the vizir kâhyasi, Jean Baptiste Vanmour, c. 1727 - c. 1730
Mehmet was the vizir kâhyasi (lieutenant) of the grand vizier. He indulged in wild excess and luxury. This was one of the reasons why he, along with the grand vizier, was murdered by his subordinates in 1730. When his houses were plundered, great hoards of gold were found hidden in secret cellars.
