At the age of twenty-six, when he began his reign, Sultan Suleiman aimed to make the Ottomans invincible, building a realm more powerful and extensive than that of Alexander the Great. He ruled for 46 years, and during this time Sultan Suleiman became the greatest warrior and ruler of both East and West. The young Suleiman received news of his succession to the throne during a hunting party in 1520. Unaware that he would be ruling a reign beyond his dreams, he left behind his wife Mahidevran and his son, the little prince Mustafa, in his palace in Manisa. He took to the road with his close friend and companion Ibrahim to reach the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul. As they started their journey overland, an Ottoman ship set sail from Crimea in the Black Sea, bringing female slaves as gifts for the Ottoman palace... On this ship was Alexandra La Rossa, the daughter of a Ukrainian Orthodox minister... This young girl had been taken away from her family and sold to the Crimean palace. She had no idea that she would become Hurrem, wife of Sultan Suleiman and mother of princes, ruling the empire with him through bloodshed and intrigue. As Sultan Suleiman conquered the world, his great passion for Hurrem would come with a high price. He would see his most trusted friend and Grand Vizier Ibrahim beheaded and he would have to order the death of his own sons... For Hurrem, the game of power was bloody and ruthless... Anything was acceptable, if it led to ultimate victory.

This is one of the most entertaining and intriguing television shows out there and its basis in history makes it that much more EPIC!! The characters are painfully well constructed and you'll find yourself taking sides - you might end up having arguments at home because you'll find others siding with the opposite group of characters. Although I finished the entire show last year I still feel like these are actual people that I spent time with - that's how brilliant the writing was!!
