Suleiman the Magnificent and Roxelane (Hyreem). Suleiman was the tenth and longest-reigning Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, and extended the borders and wealth of the Ottoman state more then any other sultan before, nor after him.
Suleiman allowed Hurrem Sultan to remain with him at court for the rest of her life, breaking another tradition - that when imperial heirs came of age, they would be sent along with the imperial concubine who bore them to govern remote provinces of the Empire, never to return unless their progeny succeeded to the throne.
