The essays gathered here examine the legacy of Roxolana, a sixteenth-century Ukrainian woman who, from harem slave, became legal wife and advisor of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent. The collection views Roxolana from Western and Eastern European perspectives, as source material is taken from England, Italy, France, Spain, Germany, Turkey, Poland, and Ukraine. Also included are six European source texts, here translated into modern English for the first time.
