Then, she married Kara Ahmed Pasha, who was the Grand Vizier of the Ottoman Empire between 1553 and 1555, and they had two daughters. After his execution, she either went to live in Bursa but returned to the Imperial Palace after the death of Suleiman I,or, according to other sources,was forcibly married to Hadim Ibrahim Pasha in or between 1556 and 1562, presumably as a punishment for her intrigues.
