Mehmed’s legal code, Kanunname, contained a clause that stated, “For welfare of the state, the one of my sons to whom God grants the sultanate may lawfully put his brothers to death.
Mehmed also decided to keep all of his sons at court, in an effort to prevent any possibility of his sons leading a rebellion against him.
Mehmed II even constructed a special compound for his sons to be held in; this isolated structure, which was contained within the walls of Topkapi Palace, would later be called the “Cage.”5 With the advent of the “Cage,” the practice of fratricide was no longer necessary.

Mehmed (Mehmed III) ascended the throne and his brother Shahin became the Kalga Sultan (as well as the "main player" in foreign policy of Khanate).
Mehmed and Shahin could count on their subjects for support, but there were also some supporters of the old Khan Dzanibeg among their members, which would later prove consequential.
Mehmed Khan was suspected by the Cossacks for betrayal and was thus killed by the Cossacks, while Shahin escaped under the protection of the Persian Shah to Kaukaz.

His accession marks the definite beginning of the decline of the Ottoman power, which had only been maintained under Selim II by the genius of the all-powerful grand vizier Mehmed Sokollu.
For, though Sokollu remained in office until his assassination in October 1578, his authority was undermined by the harem influences, which with Murad III were supreme.
She had been captured by Turkish brigands during the 1537 war and sent to the seraglio of Selim II, where she was known as Sultana Nur-Banu.

The clash between the two generations of mothers is most vividly illustrated in the affair of Mahmud, the eldest son of Mehmed III, whose mother was not sufficiently circumspect in her efforts to bolster the prince's candidacy.
The factional strife that marked the second reign of Mustafa, Osman's uncle and successor, is further evidence that a prince's mother was clearly identified with her son in the competition for the throne in the early decades of the seventeenth century.
The responsibilities of Nurbanu Sultan toward her son Murad III and Safiye Sultan toward Mehmed III were particularly great because of the presence of the new sultans' younger brothers in the capital.

Mehmed Fatih reflected Ottoman belief when he stated that "God grants the sultanate" to one of his sons, and it was on the basis of this belief that the creation of a succession law per se could not gain support.
For Mehmed was not sent out as a sanca governor until 1542, and it was on this his first assignment that he died only one year later, in his sancak city of Manisa.
When Mehmed became sultan Mehmed III, he kept all of his sons at home, and in the next reign, Ahmed I introduced the Kafes system which as we know produced a long line of fairly incompetent and certainly poorly trained successors to the throne.

This is quite feasible, since by then Mehmed IV had been on the throne for a whole decade, and as a reigning sultan would not have had to wait for legitimate liaisons.
Since the death of Mehmed III in 1603, the Ottoman rule of succession had been moving from the winner-takes-all game of the 15th and 16th centuries not into primogeniture but into seniority, and rulership was being handed over "horizontally" among siblings, reverting only when these were exhausted to a "vertical" father-to-son pattern.
And when the beginning of the end came for Ahmed III and Damad (Nev?ehirli) ‹brahim Pa?a, the sultan, his beloved grand vizier (whom he would soon throw to the dogs) and other members of the same team were having a meeting at Hatice's waterfront palace in Üsküdar.
