Daulat bint-i Abd Allah|
Kütahya, Germiyan dynasty
c. January 1414|
Bursa, Ottoman Empire
Devlet Hātûn (fully Devletlu İsmetlu Daulat Hātûn Hazretleri, Ottoman Turkish: دولت شاه خاتون, c. (? - 1412) (Daulat meaning "State"), also known as Devlet, was the twelfth wife of Ottoman Sultan Bayezid I and the mother of Mehmed I.
Devlet Hatun was the twelfth and last wife of Ottoman Sultan Bayezid I and the mother of Bayezid's successor, Mehmed I. Her name in her vakfîyya is registered as Daulât bint-i Abd'Allah. This implies that the mother of Mehmed I was of non-Turkish origin. Although the sign at her tomb (see image in next section) says that Devlet was the daughter of a Germiyanid (i.e. Turkic) prince, she was ethnically of non-Turkish origin. Since both Devlet Hâtun, and Devlet-Şâh Hâtun died in 1414, she is frequently confused with Devlet-Şâh Hâtun, the daughter of Süleyman of Germiyan.
Devlet Hatun died in January 1414 and was buried at the Devlet Hatun Tomb (Türbesi) in Bursa.
The tomb of Devlet Hatun stands alone in Bursa neighbourhoods separate from the mosque complexes that contained the tombs of the sultans and other mbers of the dynasty, following two royal mothers, Nilüfer Hatun and Gülçiçek Hatun. It is well tended by the Bursa neighbourhood in which it is situated and functions as a local pilgrimage site. The sign outside her tomb gives the following details:
It was built by Sultan Mehmed I. Devlet Hatun was the wife of Sultan Bayezid I and the mother of Sultan Mehmed I. She was the daughter of a Germiyanid prince. Her mother was the granddaughter of Mevlâna Celâleddini Rumi. Devlet Hatun died in 1412.
