 Murad III - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Murad III (Arabic: مراد الثالث) (July 4, 1546 – January 15, 1595) was the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire from 1574 until his death.
Murad III was the eldest son of sultan Selim II (1566–74) and valide sultan Nur-Banu (née Cecilia Venier-Baffo) and succeeded his father in 1574.

 Mehmed IV - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mehmed IV (also known as Dördüncü, "fourth", and Avcı, "hunter") (January 2, 1642–1693) or Mohammed IV (Arabic: محمد الرابع) was the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire from 1648 to 1687.
Kara Mustafa was strangled in Belgrade on Mehmed IV's orders and his head was placed on a column just outside the former palace in Edirne, but it was not enough to save the throne for the Sultan who was deposed (1687) and imprisoned at Edirne near his favourite hunting grounds.
Mehmed IV's reign is notable in that it formally ended the era of Ottoman sultans as true rulers of the empire; in 1656 he signed away his executive powers to Mehmed Köprülü, thus ushering in the era of Grand Viziers as the real power behind the throne in Istanbul.

 Murad 4
Murad accessed the throne at the age of 11, and was in the early years of his reign dominated by his mother, grand viziers, the Janissaries and the sipahiyin.
It was first at the age of 20, when conflicts between the groups, principally the sipahiyin and the viziers threatened to overthrow the stability of the empire, that he acted.
Murad was able to get rid of some of the worst examples of corruption when he suppressed the sipahi, and he was also able to bring stability into the state finances.
