Korkut (1467 – 13 March 1513), born Korkut bin Bayezid, was the third son of Ottoman Sultan Bayezid II, elder brother of Bayezid's successor Selim, and younger brother of Ahmet.


In 1511, he was captured by Templar thugs in Bursa but was rescued by Turkish Assassins sent from Constantinople by the Mentor Ezio Auditore da Firenze.

Sometime later, he called together a meeting with the Mamluk Sultan Al-Ashraf Qansuh al-Ghawri, though this also caught the attention of the Ottoman Assassins, who investigated the assembly on the orders of Ezio.

He was popularly regarded as the least competent of the princes of Bayezid II and had little prospect of succeeding his father, leading to Selim's ascension.


  • Historically, Korkut was at one point captured by the Knights Hospitalier when the knights attacked his ship on his way back to Turkey from Egypt though he ultimately managed to escape. Despite failing to secure any support for the throne and readily surrendering his claim to Selim, Selim still thought the risk too great and had him executed upon taking the throne.
