Emine Hatun (Ottoman Turkish: c. 1389 – 20 March 1449) was the principal consort of Sultan Mehmed I of the Ottoman Empire. She was the mother of Sultan Murad II, and the grandmother of Sultan Mehmed II.
Emine Hatun was born as a Dulkadirid princess, the daughter of ?aban Suli Bey, third ruler of the Beylik of Dulkadir (reign 1386-1398). She had a brother Sadaka Bey, fourth ruler of the Dulkadirs (reign 1398-1399). She was the first cousin of Nasireddin Mehmed Bey fifth ruler of the Dulkadirids (reign 1399-1442). Mehmed Bey's granddaughter Sitti?ah Hatun, married Mehmed II in 1449 and later her niece Gülbahar Hatun married Bayezid II and became the mother of Selim I.
In 1403, when Mehmed had defeated his brother ?sa Çelebi and ?sfendiyar Bey, the ruler of the Isfendiyarids who had formed an alliance with each other, he returned to Rum, and decided to make some alliances of his own. While he was feasting in Tokat, Karamanid ruler Mehmed Bey sent his head military judge, and ambassadors also arrived from the realm of Dulkadirids. Relations were mended and animosity was removed. Then there was made peace and friendship between them. At that time, gifts and tokens of betrothal were sent to the Emine Hatun, who was thus engaged to the Sultan. Mehmed Çelebi's important marriage alliance with the ruler of the neighboring tribal confederation of Dulkadir, which was especially rich in horses and horsemen, demonstrates his continued emphasis on tribal politics. The alliance proved a great value for Nasireddin Mehmed Bey. This not only gave Mehmed armed assistance in his campaign for empire, but was always ready to attack the eastern provinces of the Karamanid principality. In 1404 she gave birth to the future Sultan Murad II.
