Nevesinli Salih Pasha (Bosnian: Salih-paša Nevesinjac; Cyrillic: Салих-паша Невесињац, died 16 September 1647) was an Ottoman civil servant and grand vizier.

Early years

Salih Pasha was from Nevesinje, Sanjak of Herzegovina, Bosnia Eyalet, and was sent to Constantinople at a young age. During the reign of Sultan Murat IV (r. 1623–1640), he was a civil servant specialized in treasury. He served in some other posts as well, and finally during the reign of Sultan Ibrahim (r. 1640–1648) in 1644, he was appointed defterdar, the highest position in the treasury. In 1645, grand vizier Sultanzade Mehmet Pasha was dismissed from the post. The first choice of the sultan for the post was Yusuf Pasha. However, Yusuf Pasha did not accept, and Salih Pasha was appointed as grand vizier on 17 December 1645.[1]

Grand Vizierate

The most important issue in 1646 was the war in Crete, an important island in the Aegean Sea, which was a colony of Republic of Venice in the first half of the 17th century (see Cretan War (1645–1669). Salih Pasha sent Sultanzade Mehmet Pasha, his predecessor, to Crete as the general commander (Turkish: serdar). When Mehmet Pasha died soon afterwards, Gazi Hüseyin Pasha was appointed the next commander. He was successful in capturing Rethymno. Another mainstream issue at the time was the disobedience of the Mingrelia (also known as Samegrelo, in western Georgia) principality, which was a vassal state of the Ottoman Empire. Salih Pasha was able to maintain order there.[2]


According to Austrian orientalist Joseph von Hammer-Purgstall, Sultan Ibrahim, an unbalanced monarch, had given strict orders to ban any horse carts in Istanbul, the capital. Seeing that his order was violated, he ordered the execution of his grand vizier, Salih Pasha. During a divan meeting, Salih Pasha was arrested and executed on 16 September 1647.[2]
