Murad I (Ottoman Turkish: مراد اول) (Turkish: I. Murat Hüdavendigâr) (nicknamed Hüdavendigâr, from Persian خداوندگارKhodāvandgār, “the God-like One” – but meaning “sovereign” in this context) (29 June 1326, Amasya – 15 June 1389,Kosovo Polje) was the sultan of the Ottoman Empire from 1362 to 1389. He was a son of Orhan and the Valide SultanNilüfer Hatun.
Murad I conquered Adrianople, renamed it to Edirne,[1] and in 1363 made it the new capital of Ottoman Empire.[2] Then he further expanded the Ottoman realm in Southeast Europe by bringing most of the Balkans under Ottoman rule, and forced the princes of northern Serbia and Bulgaria as well as the Byzantine emperor John V Palaiologos to pay him tribute.[1] Murad I administratively divided his empire into the two provinces of Anatolia (Asia Minor) and Rumelia (the Balkans).
