Mera Sultan is a Turkish soap opera television series that portrays the life of the magnificent Ottoman Emperor, Sultan Suleyman. In the historical page of the Muslim world, the Sultan was popularly known as Kanuni or lawgiver. Being a great and powerful leader and sultan of his time, it is quite upsetting that Muslim world knows little about him due to the over exposure and tremendous obsession of the Mughal sultanate of the sub-continent.
In turkey, the soap is aired with the name of Muhtesem Yuzyil, which means The Magnificent Century. The title reflects the reigning period of the Sultan Suleyman that is actually the longest amongst all the Ottoman Sultans of the time. The drama showcased the incidents of sultan’s court, harem and war. After gaining the power of the throne at the mere age of 26, the sultan expanded the boundaries of Ottoman Empire with the addition of more power that was impossible to beat. Even Alexander, the great emperor, was incomparable with him.
