The granddaughter of the last Ottoman ruler, Vahdettin, died this morning, private broadcaster NTV has reported on its website.

Fatma Neslişah Osmanoğlu, 91, was the last member of the Ottoman ruling family born during the empire. She took on the title of "the eldest Ottoman” after family member Ertuğrul Osman Osmanoğlu passed away in 2009.

Neslişah Osmanoğlu was the grandchild of the last sultan, Vahdettin, and the last caliph, Abdülmecit, and was also the wife of Prince Muhammed Abdülmumim, a former regent for the king of Egypt.
