Royal House House of Osman Dynasty Ottoman Dynasty Father Abdülmecid I Valide Sultan Shevkefza
He was born at Istanbul (Istanbul), Topkapı Palace. His father was Abdülmecid I. His mother, whom his father married in Constantinople on 1 August 1839, was Valide Sultan Shevkefza, (Poti, 12 December 1820 - Constantinople, Ortaköy, Çırağan Palace, 17 September 1889), originally named Vilma, a Mingrelian. He was born at Çırağan Palace, Ortaköy, Constantinople.
Murad became the Sultan when his uncle Abdülaziz was deposed. He was highly influenced by French culture. He reigned for 93 days before being deposed on the grounds that he was supposedly mentally ill, however his opponents may likely have used those grounds to stop his implementation of democratic reforms. As a result, he was unable to deliver the Constitution that his supporters had sought. The ensuing political instability caused by his ousting moved the empire closer to the disastrous war with Russia, then-ruled by Alexander II.
