The grandson of Sultan Abdulhamid II, one of the last Turkish sultans, was buried on Tuesday on the grounds of Istanbul's Fatih Mosque.

Bulent Osman's funeral was attended by Turkish Culture Minister Nabi Avci and Istanbul Mayor Kadir Topbas along with a number of other politicians and family members.

Osman, 87 years old, the grandson of Fatma Naime Sultan, Sultan Abdulhamid's daughter, died on Feb. 10 in Paris.

Osman's son Remy Cengiz told journalists during the funeral that Osman’s body was brought to Turkey in line with his wishes.

"The last wish of my father was to be buried in Turkey with his cousins and relatives. For this reason, let me express my appreciation to the prime minister and the mayor of Istanbul's Fatih district."

Sultan Abdulhamid II, the son of Sultan Abdulmecid, died in 1918, and was the 34th sultan of the Ottoman Empire.
