Marginal Man: The Ottoman Chief Harem Eunuch

I am launching a major study of the Chief Harem Eunuch, one of the most influential figures in the Ottoman Empire during the 17th and 18th centuries. I intend to spend June and July 2003 examining documents related to the Eunuch's financial activities and estates housed in the Topkapi Palace archives in Istanbul, Turkey.
