Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Hassan Mezzomorto (Turkish: Mezomorto Hüseyin Pa a; died 1701) or Hajji Husain Mezzomorto (Turkish: Hac Hüseyin Mezomorto) was an Ottoman corsair, bey, and finally Kapudan Pasha (grand admiral) of the Ottoman Navy. His epithet mezzomorto is the Italian for "half-dead", acquired during a fight when he was gravely injured. Possibly Turkish[1] or converted Christian from Mallorca, Hassan was mentioned as a captain in 1674. He rose to prominence during the French attacks on Algiers in the early 1680s. He was present for Abraham Duquesne's 1682 bombardment and commanded a fleet of corsairs the next year. The bey of Algiers Baba Hassan offered him as a hostage to the French, but Hassan Mezzomorto killed Baba Hassan and named himself as his replacement. During the 1684 bombardment, he signed a "100 year" treaty with Abraham Duquesne and was possibly confirmed in his post as beylerbey.
