Military man and playwright (b. 1851, Manastır / Greece - d. 1907, Aleppo / Syria). His real name was Mehmet Rıfat. He was a graduate of War School (1872). He participated in the famous war between Turkey and Russia, which is also known as the “War of ‘93”. He was exiled to Aleppo by Abdulhamid II, with the claim that he was involved in the events that led to dethronement of Sultan Abdulaziz (1876) and he died in exile. He published twenty plays, which he translated from French in collaboration with Hasan Bedrettin Paşa (1850-1914), in a series with the title Temaşa (Contemplation). These were staged at the Gedikpaşa Theatre.
