Roxelane mausoleum

From the Wikipedia: "Hürrem Sultan (Turkish pronunciation: [hyɾˈɾem suɫˈtaːn]; Ottoman Turkish: خُرَّم سلطان‎, Ḫurrem Sulṭān; c. 1502 – 15 April 1558, also known as Roxelana[note 1]) was the favourite and later the chief consort and legal wife of Ottoman Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent and the mother of Şehzade Mehmed, Mihrimah Sultan, Şehzade Abdullah, Sultan Selim II, Şehzade Bayezid, and Şehzade Cihangir.[6] She was one of the most powerful and influential women in Ottoman history and a prominent and controversial figure during the era known as the Sultanate of Women. She was "Haseki Sultan" (chief wife of the Sultan) when her husband, Suleiman I, reigned as the Ottoman sultan. She achieved power and influenced the politics of the Ottoman Empire through her husband and played an active role in state affairs of the Empire. Hürrem died on 15 April 1558 and was buried in a domed mausoleum (türbe) decorated in exquisite Iznik tiles depicting the garden of paradise, perhaps in homage to her smiling and joyful nature."
