Mareşal (transl.Marshal) is the highest rank in the Turkish Land Forces and Turkish Air Force.[1] It is the equivalent of a Field marshal in other countries.[2]

The rank of Mareşal can trace its origins to the Ottoman Empire, where the rank of Mushir (Arabic: مشير‎) was bestowed upon senior commanders upon order of the ruling Sultan.[citation needed]

The word mariscalcus in Latin, had parts from the old-German words meaning horse and servant.[citation needed]

The rank of Mareşal can only be bestowed by the National Assembly, and only given to a general who leads an army, and/or air force with an extraordinary success in battle gaining a victory over the enemy.[3]

The corresponding rank in the Turkish Navy is Büyük amiral.[4]

List of Turkish Marshals

Only two people were bestowed the rank Mareşal to date, both for their successes in the Turkish War of Independence.
