Mehmed Ferid Pasha (Turkish: Avlonyalı Ferid Paşa or Avlonyalı Mehmed Ferid Paşa 1851, Yanya (Ioannina) - 1914, Sanremo) was an Ottoman statesman of Albanian origin. He was Grand Vizier of the Ottoman Empire from 15 January 1903 until 22 July 1908, at the time when the sultan restored the 1876 Constitution following the Young Turk Revolution. Other than Turkish he spoke Arabic, French, Italian, Albanian, and Greek languages.[1][2] He was the fraternal brother of the modern Albanian state founder Ismail Qemal bey Vlora. His third son Jalaluddin Pasha married Princess Atiyetullah Khanum Efendi, the oldest daughter of Abbas II of Egypt.
