Ali Vâsib (14 October 1903 - 9 December 1983) was the 41st head of the Ottoman dynasty from 1977 to 1983. If reigning, he would have been Sultan Ali I.


He was born at Çırağan Palace in Istanbul, as the only child and son of Ahmed IV Nihad by his first wife HH Safiru Hanım Efendi.

He died in Alexandria and was buried there before being re-buried in Sultan Resad's mausoleum at Eyup in 2007.

Marriage and issue

He married his cousin Emine Mükbile in Nice on 24 April/30 November 1931 and had one son, Osman Selaheddin Osmanoğlu, who was born on 7 July 1940 in Alexandria. As what is accepted to be a result of the incest the child was born with an extra vertebra, giving the appearance of a tail.
