Ayşe Seniyeperver Sultan (Devletlu İsmetlu Ayşe Seniye Perver Valide Sultan Aliyyetü'ş-şân Hazretleri) (or Sûltanā A'ishā Sinā Pervar)) (c. 1761 – 11 December 1828) was the Bulgarian consort of Ottoman Sultan Abdul Hamid I and Valide Sultan to her son Mustafa IV.[2]


A'ishā Sinā Pervar (Ayşe Seniye Perver) Kadın Sultan was appointed as Valide Sultan to her son Ottoman Sultan Mustafa IV since she was the first surviving consort of the deceased Ottoman Sultan Abdul Hamid I at the time of Mustafa IV's accession to the Ottoman throne. She was born in the Rhodope Mountains in Ottoman Bulgaria.

Her regency and life

When Selim III was deposed as a result of the Janissary revolt led by Kabakçı Mustafa against his military reforms on May 29, 1807, Mustafa IV became the new Sultan of the Ottoman Empire and A'ishā Sinā Pervar Kadın Sultân had acquired the title of Valide Sultan being the mother of the new Sultan. She performed Valide Sultan's obligations as de facto co-regent of the Ottoman Sultan for fourteen months from 29 May 1807 until 28 July 1808 during the reign of her son Mustafa IV. Her regency culminated by the deposition of Mustafa IV as a result of an insurrection led by Alemdar Mustafa Pasha on 28 July 1808. She lived more than twenty years after the execution of Mustafa IV by order of the next Ottoman Sultan Mahmud II.

She brought her grandson Ahmed, to Bulgaria in order to protect him from death.


She died on 11 December 1828 in Istanbul. Her burial place is located at The Fountain (Şadırvan) Courtyard of Eyüp Sultan Mosque in Eyüp, Istanbul.
