Tîr-î-Müjgan Üçüncü (the Third) Kadın Efendi (née Virgin[2]) (ca. 16 August 1819 – 2 November 1853) was a Circassian third wife of Ottoman Sultan Abdülmecid I.[3]


She was from the Shapsugs Tribe of Circassia who was initially the fourth, then the third wife of Ottoman Sultan Abdülmecid I and the biological mother of Ottoman Sultan Abdul Hamid II.[4]

However, she was never a Valide Sultan to her son because she died twenty-three years before the Sultan Abdülhamid II's accession to the Ottoman throne.[5] In place of the biological mother Tîr-î-Müjgan[6] Kadınefendi, the title of Valide Sultan was later acquired by Rahîme Pirîstû (Perestû) as the adoptive mother of Abdul Hamid II.

Burial place

Tîr-î-Müjgan Kadınefendi died of tuberculosis on the second day of November 1853 at The Beylerbeyi Palace in Üsküdar, Istanbul. Her burial place is located at The tomb of Cedit Havatin in Yeni Mosque, Istanbul.
