My thesis, named “ the chief Astrologer Hüseyin Efendi and the 3 sultans period” has significance for there aren’t many studies on this subject. The sultan’s and the society’s point of view considered through Astrologer Hüseyin Efendi’s life. Before the parts/sections about the place of the augurship and the life of Hüseyin Efendi, the terms of prophecy, prophetbood, astrologer (augur) and foretelling are examined in a historical range in order to set up the subject on a basis. People’s effort to foresee their future and the importance given to the ones who foretell in early ages are explained via events, statements and cultural changes. While the differences and the similarities between the foretelling in the western world and the augurship in the eastern (oriental) world are being stated under another title, my point, the answer of the question “how augurship which is banned by islam is embodied in the Ottoman Palace” is given again through the life of Astrologer Hüseyin Efendi.
