The study aims to determine both the common features and different points of the information about Rüstem Pasha by making use of both foreign sources and sources in the Ottoman Empire. In addition to this, the personal thoughts and evaluations of the local and foreign travelers, ambassadors, and poets of the period who visited the Ottoman Empire were compared, as they saw the image of Rüstem Pasha, which is the main subject of the study, and Pasha, who played the leading role in the issues that shape the survival of the Ottoman Empire.

As a result of the examination, it was concluded that while a positive perception was created in both Ottoman and foreign sources about Rüstem Pasha's state affairs and when the Sultan was in question, there was a negative perception when it came to Pasha's personal affairs, especially because he took bribes.
