Hidiv Kasrı (Khedive Palace). Abbas II (reigned 1892-1914) was the last Khedive of Egypt and Sudan. Abbas II sought co-operative relations with the Ottoman Empire, whose sovereignty over Egypt had effectively been rendered purely theoretical ever since Muhammad Ali's seizure of power in 1805. The palace, completed in 1907 stands on a hilltop within a large grove of some 270 acres (1,100,000 m2) above the Çubuklu neighborhood in the Beykoz district, overlooking the Istanbul Strait.
