Derviş Mehmed Pasha (Turkish: Derviş Mehmed Paşa; c. 1569 – 9 December 1606) was an Ottoman statesman that served as the Grand Vizier of the Ottoman Empire briefly between 21 June 1606 and 9 December 1606.



He was from Bosnia[1][2] (see Bosnia Eyalet and Sanjak of Bosnia), and was born Christian, being brought away by the Ottomans as part of the devşirme, becoming a Janissary. He rose in the court ranks and became bostancibasi.[2]


He was the bey of Herzegovina.[when?]

He was the Grand Vizier of the Ottoman Empire briefly between 21 June 1606 and 9 December 1606.[3] A telhis of Derviş Mehmed to the sultan spoke of him changing the Voivode of Moldavia from Constantin Movila to Simion Movila (1606).[4]

He was strangled by Ahmed I's order when he learned that his father Sultan Mehmed III was poisoned to death by Dervish Mehmed Pasha.[2] He was buried at Üsküdar.[2]
