Murad III (Ottoman Turkish: Murad-i salis, Turkish:III.Murat) (Bozdagan or Manisa, 4 July 1546 – Topkapi Palace, Istanbul, 15/16 January 1595) was the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire from 1574 until his death.

Murad III was the eldest son of sultan Selim II (1566–74) and Valide Sultan Nurbanu Sultan (a Venetian noblewoman, originally named Cecilia Venier-Baffo), and succeeded his  father in 1574. Murad began his reign by having his five younger  brothers strangled. His authority was undermined by the harem influences, more specifically, those of his mother and later of his favorite wife Safiye Sultan. The power had only been maintained under Selim II by the genius of the all-powerful Grand Vizier Mehmed Sokollu who remained in office until his assassination in October 1579. The reign of Murad III was marked by wars with Iran and Austria and Ottoman economic decline and institutional decay.

He had two large alabaster urns transported from Pergamon and placed on two sides of the nave in the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul.

From him descend all succeeding Sultans, through his marriage to his maternal relative Valide Sultan Safiye Sultan, originally named Sofia Baffo, a Venetian noblewoman, mother of Mehmed III.

A large wax candle dressed in tin which donated by him to the Rila monastery in Bulgaria is on display in the monastery museum.

Numerous envoys and letters were exchanged between Elizabeth I and Sultan Murad III. In one correspondence, Murad entertained the notion that Islam and Protestantism had “much more in common than either did with Roman Catholicism, as both rejected the worship of idols”, and argued for an alliance between England and the Ottoman Empire. To the dismay of Catholic Europe, England exported tin and lead (for  cannon-casting) and ammunitions to the Ottoman Empire, and Elizabeth  seriously discussed joint military operations with Murad III during the  outbreak of war with Spain in 1585, as Francis Walsingham was lobbying for a direct Ottoman military involvement against the common Spanish enemy.
