Mehmed Emin Namık Pasha (1804-1892)

Tinco Lycklama met Mehmed Namik Pasha in the month of February 1867, in Baghdad. At that time, the Pasha was the governor of Baghdad and of its whole province. He gave Tinco full support for the continuation of his travel plans – including a special passport and personal letters that Tinco would use wherever he went throughout the Ottoman empire.

The Pasha is considered as one of the most influential Ottoman statesmen of all times, who has made an indelible imprint on Ottoman politics throughout the 19th century.
