Hadım Suleiman Pasha (Ottoman Turkish: خادم سلیمان پاشا; Turkish: Hadım Süleyman Paşa; c. 1467 – September 1547) was an Ottoman statesman and military commander. He was the (viceroy) of Ottoman Egypt in 1525–1535 and 1537–1538, and Grand Vizier of the Ottoman Empire between 1541 and 1544.[1] He was a Hungarian eunuch,[2] his epithet hadım meaning "eunuch" in Turkish.

As governor of Egypt, he was ordered by the sultan on an expedition to the Indian Ocean, where led the capture of Aden and the Siege of Diu in 1538.[2] Suleiman Pasha was a benefactor of his long-serving successor for Egyptian governorship, Davud Pasha (served 1538–1549), who he championed for the role to spite his rival and colleague, Rüstem Pasha.[3]
