Turkish warships saluted his tomb, the Tomb of Barbaros, three times with foghorns. they sailed along the coast of Istanbul’s Beşiktaş district.

Before the naval exercise, the tomb was open to visitors half a day a week. It is now open five days a week, and the change in time reveals how powerful an inspiration Hayreddin Pasa has been in modern Turkish life.

After his death in 1546, the Ottoman Empire announced: “The leader of the sea is dead.”

As the youngest of four brothers, he began trading between Lesvos, Thessaloniki and Euboea in present-day Greece with a ship he built.

His brother was known as Baba Oruc (Father Oruc) because he helped Muslim refugees fleeing the Christian Crusades in Andalus. He transported them to North Africa with his fleet.

Hayreddin Pasa was clever and bright as a young man, although he tended to make fun of his contemporaries. As a young man, he was known for his fiery rhetoric. He was brave but prudent.

He was strong-willed, but with an innate fighting instinct.

After his successes in the Mediterranean as commander of his fleet, he made sure to invest in his subordinates by educating them and treating them with respect.

He was multilingual and spoke all the main Mediterranean languages, such as Greek, Arabic, Spanish, Italian and French.

After rescuing his brother Oruc from the prison of the Knights of Rhodes, the brothers declared their loyalty to the Ottoman prince Sehzade Korkut, who was Selim I’s brother.
