Imperial Harem
The Imperial Harem was the private section dedicated to the family of the Sultan and their servants. The number of people living inside was so considerable that the harem at the Topkapı Palace included close to 400 apartments. Access to this area was usually restricted to the Sultan and very close relatives. Likewise, leaving the harem required an special authorization. The harem also had some political influence in the empire. Some of the women in it gained so much power that they had a saying in the government affairs. This was specially the case when the newly elected Sultans were not old enough to be able to rule.
