The five-year inheritance lawsuit involving the 11 heirs of
Abdülhamid II, the 34th Ottoman Sultan, has reached as
far as a Native American in the USA.

In the lawsuit, in which the first generation of the Sultan's
heirs was determined, there is mention of his granddaughter
Samiye having married Native American Larry D'appadoca.
It is understood that Samiye D'appadoca died in New York
23 years ago at age 78.

The court has asked the U.S.Consulate to help determine who
Samiye D'appadoca's heirs are and a letter has been written by
the court to the Ottoman Archives, requesting the records of
the Sultan's family members who were exiled abroad. Once
the responses come from the U.S. side and the Archives, the
number of Abdülhamid's heirs living in Turkey and abroad
can be fixed.

In an expert witness report that previously reached the court,
15 people were identified who were his heirs from among the
male and female children of his first marriage in 1863. It was
explained in the report that when these 15 chidren of his married,
a portion of the heirs who filed the suit were first generation
heirs of Abdülhamid II.  Now the time has come to determine
the family members who were exiled abroad.

Prince selfie'ing with his harem before the attack.

The telephone in the hand of the "selfie-taking prince" statue
put on the  banks of the Kızılırmak River by the Amasya
municipality, has been broken.  The statue, with the prince
holding his sword in his left hand and and a selfie-taking
cellphone in his right hand, was attacked yesterday by unknown

People who wanted to have their own selfie taken with the
statue were upset when they learned of the broken cellphone.
Amasya is known as the place where a number of future
sultans were trained as princes, hence the nickname "City
of Princes".
