Eunuchs were indeed an integral part of Turkish harems and even had a huge influence there, but not everything shown in the series is reliable. Yes Yes!

According to the records, a eunuch with this name served in the harem of the Turkish Sultan under Ibrahim the Mad (son of Kosem the Sultan). So Alexandra Anastasia Lisowska from the "Magnificent Age" did not have a close and devoted servant, whom the mistress granted freedom for the length of service.

In reality, Isabella of Castile was the grandmother of Charles V, Suleiman's opponent, so there were no romantic dramas in the hunting lodge and could not have been. All this whirlwind with a secret romance and the mysterious disappearance of the Spanish Infanta was invented by the scriptwriters to sharpen the plot.

Initially, she was used against Alexandra Anastasia Lisowska, but then she became a double agent and even switched to the service of the Haseki. But in life, Roksolana did not have a servant with that name, so the image of the faithful Kalfa was created by the scriptwriters to reveal a number of intrigues in the harem.

Mahidevran was just one of the favorites, but not the wife of the Sultan

In the series, Makhidevran is repeatedly called Haseki, but Suleiman introduced this title specifically for Alexandra Anastasia Lisowska, and no woman had ever worn it before. Haseki is a title that only the legitimate wife of the ruler could receive, that is, the one with whom the nikah was imprisoned, and Mahidevran was not such. Also, the Haseki called the only wife of the padishah, and she had tremendous privileges and power, since the title was the second most important among women. Only valid (mother of the Sultan) was higher in status. Mahidevran was just the favorite and mother of Shehzade Mustafa. In real life, she was forever exiled to the old palace immediately after the unsuccessful attempt on Alexandra Anastasia Lisowska.
