A small though familiar Maltese surname established on the Maltese Isles since the 16th century. Established the future for the Knights of the order of St John, which history hasn’t documented so well, which was of relevance to the next several centuries. A family of Imperial blood, that played importances in Europe as the heirs of the Ottoman Empire . Sultan Djem Osman, the younger son of Sultan Mehmed III, though elder son born during the reign of his father, took the reins of the Empire. His eldest brother and heir were furious and left his governing province for the Empire’s capital to inherit what he had assumed his rightful legacy. Battle took place, brother against brother, though Djem failed to secure his believed rights of the Ottoman Empire . Djem fled first to Egypt , under the protection of the Sultan of Egypt, then to Rhodes Islands . The orders of St John were Masters of the Isles and had hoped to gain help to resecure his claim age. Djem stay on the Rhodes Islands was interesting as his union with an Italian Noblewomen produced several descendants. After several years, Djem found that he was no closer then when he arrived, so upon an invitation to the Papal States and the grace and favour of Pope Alexander VI Borgia which started Djem and his descendants their pretension of the Ottoman Empire in Europe. The Pope had acknowledged Djem’s sons as Princes of Royal and Imperial blood, with the title of “Prince de Sayd” in 1492.
Sultan Djem’s invitation to Rome was the start of his European tour to gain support for his “Christian” conversation of the Ottoman Empire from the European powers such as France , Holy Roman Empire , Spain and the Italian States and Kingdoms. During his tour he gain many acknowledgements and honours though support for a “Crusade” was lacking and uninteresting to the European Powers.
Further note: Sultan Djem was recognized by the following as ‘H.I.H, Prince and Sultan Djem Sayd of the Ottoman Empire .

Upon his return to Rome , he settled his family outside Rome . His eldest son had married a daughter of a Genoese diplomat in Rome . Djem’s son, the Principe de Sayd moved to the Neapolitan capital of Naples . Djem was dead, poisoned by the Borgia household, though some suspect that it could have been the Pope or his sister. But this has been unproven, but sources have stated that Djem’s brother, the Sultan had paid off the Pope to kill Djem ‘off’.
The Knights of St John fought and lost Rhodes Islands then moved to the Neapolitan Kingdom waiting for a defence to retake their lost island. But under the Spanish succession, Malta , seem to be the likely place where the Knights could move. Malta was a fief under the Spanish Neapolitan kingdom and was given as a token to the Knights. The family of Sayd has established in Malta by this stage, with the younger branch of the 1st Prince de Sayd. Initially the Younger branch established at Birgu, and then moved to Santi, and Zebbug.
Another family in Malta were of Arabic origin whom were scattered throughout Malta , a small family, which only a branch succeeds today. The descendants of Djem arrived in two stages. The elder branch moved from Naples to Sicily and the younger branch moved to Malta about the 1500’s. The elder branch was claimants to the throne of Ottoman Empire and intermarried with Sicilian families. In the mid 17th century, the head of the Imperial House moved to Malta and lived at Mdina as grace and favour of the Grand Masters. Though the elder line died out during the late 17th century, though in Sicily , an illegitimate heir took upon his pretensions to his claimant. The importance of having such Imperial family living in Malta was considered as a safe haven, but also as bait to the Ottoman Turks.
Within several years of the Princely family settlement in Malta , the Grand Siege of Malta had begun. The Ottoman Empire knew the threats of the pretentsive family and what it meant to an Empire that was strong and mighty. All enemies to an Empire were needed to be exhausted.
The Grand Master knew of what fate lay ahead, though through determination and strength from the Maltese, Knights and the European powers to over power the Turks once and for. Success was achieved eventually and the Turks left to never be heard of again.
Upon the succession of the Grand Siege of Malta, the imperial family lost favour and respect. There was no further need of them and slowly and eventually moved into civilian life. The elder line died out at the end of the 17th century, with succession and acknowledgement by the Grand Master of Malta, of Salvatore Sayd, as the Prince de Sayd e Bibino Magno with rights as “His Highness”, instead of “His Imperial Highness”.
The younger branch who settled at the beginning of the 16th century became successful and their descendants widespread throughout the islands. The elder branch that carried the Sicilian title of Barony and Princely di Bibino Magno was succeeded by marriage to Salvatore Sayd. Principi Salvatore Sayd had lived in Zebbug and at Santi in Malta .
The family continued at each generation with styles of their titles, but led a peaceful life as landowners of properties throughout Malta . Upon Napoleon’s overthrow of the Knights in Malta and the burning of ‘Letters Patents’ of many noble families and executions of many whom led coups against the French. Principi Giovanni Maria Sayd, led a revolt against the French with many of the educated and members of the leading families of Malta were caught and all lined up to be executed by the firing squad of 1799.
Principi Giovanni Maria Sayd’s descendants, since the execution have lived almost recluse non-public life and under the British, never bothered to obtain recognition for their inheritance. Fortunately, the elder line kept key documentation and data, which survived, to the present family.
Today, acknowledgement has been plenty some and their aim to continue its heritage for successive generations to come and also to inform other families’ member of such history it has.
The late Head of the family was the second son of Principi Francesco Saverio Sayd. The elder son had acknowledged and accepted his rights to his younger brother, with only succession to the Maltese Barony of Baccari. Further more inheritance of monies was agreed upon before moving to Australia prior to World War Two.

m.arried or mistress ! to Helena dei Conti Orsini, with issue.

Fled to Rhodes and later Europe.

Cem was the younger brother of Sultan Bayezid. When Mehmet
the Conqueror had died, Bayezid was the governor of Sivas ,
Tokat and Amasya, Cem ruled the province of Karaman and
Konya .

Karamani Mehmet Pasha the last grand vizier of Sultan Mehmet
II sent two messengers to both of the shehzades just after the
death of Sultan. But the messenger sent to Cem had been
caught on the way by Sinan Pasha the Anatolia Deputy. Cem
could have learnt his father's death four days later. The Yeniceris
revolted and killed Karamani Mehmet Pasha as a result of this
event. They enthroned Korkut the son of Bayezid as the regent
(May,4 1481).

Prince Bayezid arrived Istanbul on 21st May 1481 and was
declared Sultan. Cem on the other hand arrived Inegol on 27th
May 1481 with his 4000 soldiers. Sultan Bayezid sent an army
led by Ayas Pasha on Cem. On 28th May 1481 Cem had defeated
Bayezid's army and he declared himself Sultan of Anatolia and
made his capital Bursa . He proposed division of the empire, with
ayezid ruling only Europe . Bayezid rejected the proposal, of
course, defending the continued unity of the Ottoman State . He
marched through Bursa and the decisive battle between the two
took place near Yenisehir. Cem lost the battle and took refuge in
the Mameluke State with his family. He went to Cairo .

In Cairo Cem has received a letter from his brother. In this letter,
Beyazid offered Cem one million akces(Ottoman money) in order
to dissuade from the throne. Cem rejected this offer and came
to his homeland. On 27th May 1482 he besieged Konya . The
Ottoman Army commanded by Sultan Bayezid went to Konya ,
Cem ended the siege and withdrew to Ankara . He was intending
to go to Cairo again but all the ways had been kept by Bayezid.
Meanwhile, Pierre d'Aubusson one of the Knights of Rhodes
invited Cem to Rhodes .

On 29th June 1482 Cem went to Rhodes . He was planning to
leave the island in a short time, and he made an agreement with
the knights about his departure. But, the knights had deceived
him and they did not permit him to depart from the island. Cem
began to live a prisoner's life in Rhodes . Eventually, this was very
unfortunate for Cem himself and for the Ottoman Empire .

Afterwards, Cem was sent to France . Sultan Bayezid sent a
messenger to France and requested Cem to be kept there.

Pope Innocent VIII intended to organise a new crusade using
Cem. But, he could not had been successful as the other
European countries rejected. He offered Cem to convert to
Christianity. Cem of course rejected this offer. Afterwards, the
Pope had taken more than 40.000 gold annual, from Bayezid for
Cem's expenses. The Ottoman Empire had stopped the
campaigns as the Pope threatening them with Cem's liberation.

After all these events, Cem Sultan had died in February 25, 1495.
Sultan Bayezid declared national mourning for three days. He
also tried to take Cem's body from the Pope, but, four years
later after Cem's death his body was brought to the Ottoman
lands. He was buried in Bursa .

1.1.2. Prince (Shahzada) Oguz Khan Sayd b. 1474 Kastamonu d. 1483 Constantinople

Prince. Pierre Mehmed Sayd b. 1475 Konya- Executed in 1522 Rhodes Island married or mistress! to Maria Concetta Doria; (her ancestry), with issue.
Created Principe de Sayd 1492 by Pope Alexander Borgia Created Visconte de Sayd, by the King of Naples Created Patrician of Rome by the Roman Senate.
Pierre Mehmed's early days was in Egypt, with his parents and sister, who later married to the Sultan of Egypt. They Eventually moved to Rhodes Island by the invitation of the Grand Master of the island then later to Rome by the early 1490's. Living with the Pope Alexander Borgia's family in Rome by invitation until the death of his father in 1495, then moved south to the Kingdom of Naples. An arranged marriage between the daughter of the Consul of Genoa and Pierre Mehmed, the Doria family are of a deeply rooted noble family. After their marriage, they continued to live in Rome and later settled in Naples and served as an Alternative Sultan with the backing of the Grand Master of Rhodes Island. This we know from the little information provided from the Grand Master himself. Dying in Rhodes Island while visiting the Grand Master and buried in the main Cathedral of the Capital. Today, the tomb is destroyed likely from when the Turks had invaded the island and defeated the Order of St John.

Nicolas Vatin, annexes 25 page 501, says: " the unfortunate was discovered with his wife, his daughters and his son, who was executed with him … " Narrative brought back by the provéditeur of the Venetian fleet, Zuan Vituri, in a letter dated in Candied of February 11th, 1523: cf; Sanudo XXXIV, 52-69, and confirmed by the newspaper of Soliman the Magnificent.


The Assumption is that there is a confirmed link between Djem (Cem) and the so-called descendants. Some researchers have doubts on this and no public documents found to confirm this. Though it is listed as such on the basis of tradition and assumption founded over the centuries. All titled descendants of Principe de Sayd are styled only rather then as real princes. One day, a confirmation either way will explain the missing links.

17th of October 1492

Tonight, pope Alexander the Sixth organizes a special reception in the Vatican. Numerous cardinals and other prelates are invited, but also many princes and ambassadors, representatives of many European countries in regular relation with the Holy See.

The guests of honour are Djem and his eldest son Mourad, who has been given the name Peter by the Hospitallers, and who has lived in Italy for two years. Indeed, this ceremony has been planned to bring to the Prince’s children, and particularly Peter, the legitimation of their father’s titles of nobility.

As he gave to the prince the manilla paper, which confirmed his new dignity, Alexander the Sixth Borgia stated the following:

Highness Djem Sayd, son of the Greatest and feared Sultan Mehmet the Second, by the authority of God the Almighty and ours, by the powers we have been endowed with:

« As the very venerable Order of Saint-John of Jerusalem has acknowledged you, in 1482, by the voice of its very eminent magistrate Pierre d’Aubusson, as prince of blood pretender to the throne of Constantinople ;

« Has recognized you as being Imperial Highness and « Sultan Djem Sayd of the Ottoman Empire »;

« That on this occasion he may you « Knight of Order of Saint-John of Jerusalem «;

« As Her Highness the most Christian king Charles the Eighth of France has recognized you in 1484 as a prince of royal blood and a member of the Imperial Family of the Ottoman Empire ;

« That said recognition is also conferred to your heirs, for the future and forever, we, Alexander the Sixth, have the honour and the privilege to recognize and acknowledge this day your noble descent of the Oghouz dynasty, of royal and imperial blood, and to create a new title of nobility.

« This title will be strictly bestowed to all your descendants raised in Christian faith, given perpetually and by order of primogeniture to all male heirs of your blood, as long as your lineage will last.

« Strength of the following, your first son, here by our son on this day, born on Turkish land, in Konya in 1475, instructed in Roman catholic faith, legitimate « prince of blood », is appointed by us:

« Prince Peter Mehmet Sayd of the Ottoman Empire »

« 1st Prince of Sayd »

The title given by us allows the prince Peter Mehmet Sayd, and well as to his oldest son and his future descendants, to sit on the throne of your father and of your father’s father.

Djem takes the precious document from the hands of the pope, whom he embraces, the way he is now used to do it, in spite the etiquette and every standard of behaviour, but no one in the assistance, and Alexander even less, seems to mind. Very moved, Djem stammers a few words of gratitude.

When Peter’s turn comes to pay homage to the Pope, he kneels down in front of the Holy Father and, being a good Christian, after having kissed his foot and his hand according to the customs of non-believers, he thanks him, with a slight lump in his throat due to the importance of the event.

Prince (Shahzada) Oshin Pierre Sayd b. 1500 Rome d. 1594 Naples 2nd Prince de Sayd.

Grew up in Rome and in Naples living a relative quiet life and was in Rhodes Island when his father past away in 1522 and was declared his father's general heir. It is unknown during the period of 1523 to 1550 if Oshin Pierre spent his time in Genoa under the service of his uncles. His brothers were taken by an uncle to Malta while serving the King of Sicily to meet with the Capitano della Verga of Malta around 1512 and were put under the care and education of the de Guevara and Falsone families. Both Nicola and Ambrosio served in defense capabilities and settled down with arranged marriages with the local gentry. Ambrosio later became Governor of Gozo during the early years of the Knights of St John in Malta.  Nicola was granted a piece of land in west Malta called "Ta Santi" as we learn a nominal rent was given to the Capitano della Verga and later the Grand Master. Also owned a dwelling in Zebbug as his town residence. Nicola lived a short life leaving a total of 18 children from two marriages and a slave mistress..
