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.
Of these the most powerful was that of the sultan's chief wife, named Safie ('the pure'), a beautiful Venetian of the noble family of Baffo, whose father had been governor of Corfu, and who had been captured as a child by Turkish corsairs and sold into the harem.

When Sultan Mahmut died  it was Osman III (1754-1757) who had the work completed thus ensuring that the name of the mosque would not only immortalise the name of the royal house, but his own name as well.
Mustafa III had the Fatih Mosque, which had been damaged beyond repair in the earthquake of 1766, almost completely demolished and rebuilt according to an entirely different plan, and this is the building that stands there today.
