The popular assumption that Pharaonic Egypt had a harem is however an anachronism ; while the women and children of the pharaoh, including his mother, wives, and children, had their own living quarters with its own administration in the Palace of the Pharaoh, the royal women did not live isolated from contact with men or in seclusion from the rest of the court in the way associated with the term "harem".
The kings of Ancient Assyria are known to have had a harem regulated by royal edicts, in which the women lived in seclusion guarded by slave eunuchs. A number of regulations were designed to prevent disputes among the women from developing into political intrigues. In the 7th-century BC, Assyria was conquered by the Median Empire , which appears to have adopted the harem custom, from whom it was in turn taken over by the Achaemenid Empire.
Female seclusion and a special part of the house reserved for women were common among the elites of ancient Greece, where it was known as the gynaeceum. These traditional Greek ideals were revived as an ideal for women in the Byzantine Empire in which Greek culture eventually became dominant , though the rigid ideal norms of seclusion expressed in Byzantine literature did not necessarily reflect actual practice.
When Greek culture started to replace the Roman in the Byzantine Empire in the 6th-century, it came to be seen as modest for especially upper-class women to keep to a special women's quarters gynaikonitis , and until the 12th-century, men and women are known to have participated in gender segregated banquets at the Imperial Court; however Imperial women still appeared in public and did not live in seclusion, and the idealized gender segregation was never fully enforced.
There is no evidence of among early Iranians for harem practices, that is, to take large numbers of wives or concubines and keeping them in seclusion. Greek historians have reported about the harems of the Achaemenid Empire. Herodotus reported that each Persian royal or aristocratic man had several wives and concubines, who came to the husband on a well-regulated turn-basis.
The royal household was controlled by the chief wife and queen, who as a rule was the daughter of a Persian prince and the mother of the heir to the throne,  and who was subject only to the king, with her own living quarter, revenue, estates and staff,  which included eunuchs and concubines.
The harem of Darius III reportedly consisted of his mother, queen-wife, children, over concubines and nearly household servants. However, it is a matter of debate if the Achaemenid court had a full harem culture, as women does not appear to have been fully secluded in the harem. The fact that women lived in separate quarters at the Royal Palace does not necessarily mean that they were secluded from contact with men, and despite the possibly biased Greek reports, there are no archeological evidence supporting the existence of a harem, or the seclusion of women from contact with men, at the Achaemenid court.
Royal and aristocratic Achaemenid women were given an education in subjects which did not appear compatible with seclusion, such as horsemanship and archery. Little is known about the alleged harems of the Parthians. Parthian royal men reportedly had several wives and kept them fairly secluded from all men but relatives and eunuchs. The information about the Sasanian harem reveals a picture that closely mirrors the alleged Achaemenid customs. In the Sassanian Empire, Roman reports that it was common for men to have multiple wives.
The hierarchy of the Sassanian harem is not clear. The Sassanian kings had one chief consort, who was the mother of the heir to the throne, as well as several wives of lower rank and concubines, all of whom accompanied him on travels, even on campaigns. However, while the Sasanian kings had harems, women in the Sassanid Empire in general did not live in seclusion and elaborate harems were detested and appear to have been exceptions to the rule, which is illustrated by the fact that big harems, when they occurred, were abhorred by the public.
According to Sasanian legend, of all the Persian kings, Khosrow II was the most extravagant in his hedonism. He searched his realm to find the most beautiful girls, and it was rumored that about 3, of them were kept in his harem. South Asian traditions of female seclusion, called purdah , may have been influenced by Islamic customs, but the practice of segregation by gender in Hindu society predates the Muslim conquests in the Indian subcontinent. Ashoka , the emperor of the Mauryan Dynasty in India , kept a harem of around women, all of whom were under strict rules of seclusion and etiquette.
In contrast to the earlier era of the Islamic prophet Muhammad and the Rashidun Caliphate , women in Umayyad and Abbasid society were absent from all arenas of the community's central affairs. The practice of gender segregation in Islam was influenced by an interplay of religion, customs and politics. The growing seclusion of women were illustrated by the power struggle between the Caliph Al-Hadi and his mother Al-Khayzuran , who refused to live in seclusion but instead challenged the power of the Caliph by giving her own audiences to male supplicants and officials and thus mixing with men.
Conquests had brought enormous wealth and large numbers of slaves to the Muslim elite. The majority of the slaves were women and children,  many of whom had been dependents or harem-members of the defeated Sassanian upper classes. Nabia Abbott , preeminent historian of elite women of the Abbasid Caliphate, describes the lives of harem women as follows.
The choicest women were imprisoned behind heavy curtains and locked doors, the strings and keys of which were entrusted into the hands of that pitiable creature — the eunuch. As the size of the harem grew, men indulged to satiety. Satiety within the individual harem meant boredom for the one man and neglect for the many women.
Under these conditions The marketing of human beings, particularly women, as objects for sexual use meant that elite men owned the vast majority of women they interacted with, and related to them as would masters to slaves. Elite men expressed in literature the horror they felt for the humiliation and degradation of their daughters and female relatives.
For example, the verses addressed to Hasan ibn al-Firat on the death of his daughter read:. Even so, courtesans and princesses produced prestigious and important poetry. The harem system developed in the Umayyad and Abbasid Caliphates was reproduced by the Islamic realms which developed from them, such as in the Emirates and Caliphates in Muslim Spain, Al-Andalus , which attracted a lot of attention in Europe during the Middle Ages until the Emirate of Granada was conquered in The most famous of the Andalusian harems was perhaps the harem of the Caliph of Cordoba.
Except for the female relatives of the Caliph, the harem women consisted of his slave concubines. The slaves of the Caliph were often European saqaliba slaves trafficked from Northern or Eastern Europe; while male saqaliba could be given work in a number of tasks such as offices in the kitchen, falconry, mint, textile workshops, the administration or the royal guard in the case of harem guards, they were castrated , female saqaliba were placed in the harem.
The harem could contain thousands of slave concubines; the harem of Abd al-Rahman I consisted of 6, women. The rulers of Afghanistan customarily had a harem of four official wives as well as a large number of unofficial wives for the sake of tribal marriage diplomacy. The women of the royal harem dressed in Western fashion since at least the reign Habibullah Khan but did not show themselwes other than completely covered outside of the enclosed area of the royal palace.
The royal harem were first abolished by king Amanullah Khan who in freed all slaves of the royal harem as well as encouraged his wife queen Soraya Tarzi and the other women of the royal family to unveil and live public lives. In the Muslim dynasties of Central Asia , the harem culture did not initially exist, since the customary nomad culture made it impractical.
The wives of the rulers of the Golden Horde did not live secluded in a harem but was allowed to show themselves and meet unrelated men,  and the system of harem gender segregation was not fully implemented in the Islamic dynasties of Central Asia until they stopped living a nomadic lifestyle, such as in the Crimea.
The household organization of the khans of the Giray dynasty in the Crimean Khanate is described first in the reign of Sahib I Giray , while most court offices were initiated by Sahib I Giray. The Giray court appear to have been organized in the slave household normal in other Muslim dynasties, and many of the officials and courtiers such as the viziers and equerries as well as the servants were enslaved, while some were free Muslim noble clients and ulema family members.
Inside the harem, the highest positions were that of ana biyim and ulug biyim ulug hani , which were given to the khan's mother and to the khan's first wife or the eldest Giray princess, respectively. The princes and the khans normally married free Muslim daughters of the Circassian vassal begs, and trusted high officials; the khans also customarily practiced levirate marriage.
Initially the royal women did not live in seclusion in the harem; they notably gave their own audiences to men, significantly the ceremonial visit of the Russian ambassador, who presented them with diplomatic gifts, but in the Russian ambassador was met with the message that such audiences were no longer to be given. There are few examples of politically active and influential women of the Giray harem.
The royal harem during the Khedivate of Egypt was modelled after Ottoman example, the khedives being the Egyptian vice roys of the Ottoman sultans. Similar to the Ottoman Imperial harem, the harem of the khedive was modelled on a system of polygyny based on slave concubinage, in which each wife or concubine was limited to having one son.
The khedive's harem was composed of between several hundreds to over a thousand enslaved women, supervised by his mother, the walida pasha, and his four official wives hanim and recognized concubines qadin. The Egyptian elite of bureaucrate families, who emulated the khedive, had similar harem customs, and it was noted that it was common for Egyptian upper-class families to have slave women in their harem, which they manumitted to marry off to male protegees.
This system started to change in , when Tewfik Pasha married Emina Ilhamy as his sole consort, making monogamy the fashionable ideal among the elite, after the throne succession had been changed to primogeniture, which favored monogamy.
Around the same time, the Tanzimat reforms abolished the custom of training male slaves to become military men and civil servants and replaced them with free students. Moulay Ismail , Alaouite sultan of Morocco from to , had over enslaved concubines. The king's wives, concubines, dancing girls and slaves were not the only women of the Mughal harem. Many others, including the king's mother lived in the harem. Aunts, grandmothers, sisters, daughters and other female relatives of the king all lived in the harem.
Male children also lived in the harem until they grew up. The harem had a hierarchy, its chief authorities being the wives and female relatives of the emperor and below them were the concubines. Urdubegis were the class of women assigned to protect the emperor and inhabitants of the zenana. Because the women of the Mughal court lived sequestered under purdah , the administration of their living quarters was run entirely by women.
Kashmiri women were selected because they did not observe purdah. Many of the women were purchased as slaves, and trained for their positions. The women of the Mughal harem could exercise enormous political power. Nur Jahan , chief consort of Jahangir , was the most powerful and influential woman at court during a period when the Mughal Empire was at the peak of its power and glory.
More decisive and proactive than her husband, she is considered by historians to have been the real power behind the throne for more than fifteen years. Nur Jahan was granted certain honours and privileges which were never enjoyed by any Mughal empress before or after. Nur Jahan was the only Mughal empress to have coinage struck in her name. She was given charge of his imperial seal, implying that her perusal and consent were necessary before any document or order received legal validity.
The Emperor sought her views on most matters before issuing orders. However, Mumtaz took no interest in affairs of state and Nur Jahan is therefore unique in the annals of the Mughal Empire for the political influence she wielded. It also housed the valide sultan , as well as the sultan's daughters and other female relatives.
Eunuchs and servant girls were also part of the harem. During the later periods, the sons of the sultan lived in the Harem until they were 12 years old. These women would be educated so that they were able to appear in public as a wife. Some women of Ottoman harem, especially wives, mothers and sisters of sultans, played very important political roles in Ottoman history, and during the period of the Sultanate of Women , it was common for foreign visitors and ambassadors to claim that the Empire was, de facto ruled by the women in the Imperial Harem.
The title of Haseki Sultan , was created for her and was used by her successors. The royal harem played an important role in the history of Safavid Persia. The Safavid harem consisted of mothers, wives, slave concubines and female relatives, and was staffed with female slaves and with eunuchs who acted as their guards and channel to the rest of the world. The monarchs of the Safavid dynasty preferred to procreate through slave concubines, which would neutralize potential ambitions from relatives and other inlaws and protect patrimony.
The enslaved harem women could achieve great influence, but there are also examples of the opposite: Shah Abbas II r. Slave eunuchs performed various tasks in many levels of the harem as well as the general court. Eunuchs had offices in the general court, such as in the royal treasury and as the tutors and adoptive fathers of non-castrated slaves selected to be slave soldiers ghilman , as well as inside the harem, and served as a channel between the secluded harem women and the outside court and world, which gave them a potentially powerful role at court.
In the early Safavid period, young princes were placed in the care of a lala high-ranking Qizilbash chief who acted as a guardian and eventually given charge of important governorates. The administration of the royal harem constituted an independent branch of the court, staffed mainly by eunuchs. The mothers of rival princes together with eunuchs engaged in palace intrigues in an attempt to place their candidate on the throne.
The royal harem of the ruler of the Khanate of Khiva in Central Asia Uzbekistan was composed of both legal wives and slave concubines. The khan had four legal wives, who were obliged to be practicing Muslim women. Aside from his legal wives, enslaved women were acquired from slave markets. These were obliged to be non-Muslims, since Muslims could not be slaves.
The enslaved girls were initially given as servants to the khan's mother. She provided them with an education, after some of them were selected to be the concubines to the khan. Only the khan's legal wives were allowed to give birth to his children, and the slave concubines who conceived were given a forced abortion. The son of the khan were not allowed to inherit his father's concubine, so when a khan died, his concubines were sold at the slave market.
The royal harem of the ruler of the Emirate of Bukhara in Central Asia Uzbekistan was similar to that of the Khanate of Khiva. The harem of the monarchs of the Qajar dynasty consisted of several thousand people. The harem had a precise internal administration, based on the women's rank.
She had many duties and prerogatives, such as safeguarding the harem valuables, particularly the jewels, which she administered with the help of female secretaries. In contrast to what was common in the Ottoman Empire, where the sultans normally only had slave consorts, the Qajar shah's also had a custom of diplomatic marriages with free Muslim women, daughters of Qajar dignitaries and princes.
Every consort had white and black slave servants women or eunuchs , whose number varied according to her status. Some wives had their own residence and stables. The women of the harem were responsible for everything inside the harem quarters, but the harem were guarded from the other parts of the palace biruni by the eunuchs, who together with the visits from relatives, physicians and tailors served as links to the outside world for the women, but the women were not allowed to leave the harem themselves.
The harem women had daily entertainments such as music, dance, theatrical performances and games. They studied the arts, calligraphy and poetry, and entertained themselves and the shah with music, dance and singing, and by reciting verses and telling stories, which the shah enjoyed at bedtime. The Qajar harem also had the political influence and intrigues common in royal harems. Both Persian policymakers as well as foreign diplomats therefore sought support within the royal harem.
Woman with setar or dutar. Dancing with castanets or zill. The practice of female seclusion witnessed a sharp decline in the early 20th century as a result of education and increased economic opportunity for women, as well as Western influences, but it is still practiced in some parts of the world, such as rural Afghanistan and conservative states of the Persian Gulf region.
Many working women in conservative societies have adopted hijab as a way of coping with a social environment where men are uncomfortable interacting with women in the public space. Some religious women have tried to emulate seclusion practices abandoned by their grandmothers' generation in an effort to affirm traditional religious values in the face of pervasive Westernization. Eunuchs were probably introduced into Islam through the influence of Persian and Byzantine imperial courts.
According to Encyclopedia of Islam , castration was prohibited in Islamic law "by a sort of tacit consensus" and eunuchs were acquired from Christian and Jewish traders. The dark eunuch was held as the embodiment of the sensual tyranny that held sway in the fantasized Ottoman palace, for he had been "clipped" or "completely sheared" to make of him the "ultimate slave" for the supreme ruler. The chief black eunuch, or the Kizlar Agha , came to acquire a great deal of power within the Ottoman Empire.
He not only managed every aspect of the Harem women's lives but was also responsible for the education and social etiquette of the princes and young women in the Harem. He arranged for all ceremonial events within the Harem including weddings and circumcision parties, and even notified women of death sentences when "accused of crimes or implicated in intrigues of jealousy and corruption.
Nineteenth-century travelers accounts tell of being served by black eunuch slaves. Both Arabs and Jews owned slaves. In Muscovite Russia the area of aristocratic houses where women were secluded was known as terem. Hougong refers to the large palaces for the Chinese emperor's consorts, concubines, female attendants and eunuchs. The women who lived in an emperor's hougong sometimes numbered in the thousands. In , Yongle Emperor ordered 2, concubines, servant girls and eunuchs who guarded them to a slow slicing death as the Emperor tried to suppress a sex scandal which threatened to humiliate him.
In Africa , many chieftains have traditionally had harems. The former Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini had six wives, for example, and members of the Nigerian chieftaincy system have historically had as many as three hundred of them. A distinct, imaginary vision of the harem emerged in the West starting from the 17th century, when Europeans became aware of Muslim harems housing numerous women. In contrast to the medieval European views, which conceived Muslim women as victimized but powerful through their charms and deceit, during the era of European colonialism the "imaginary harem" came to represent what Orientalist scholars saw as an abased and subjugated status of women in the Islamic civilization.
These notions served to cast the West as culturally superior and justify colonial enterprises. Much of Verdi 's opera Il corsaro takes place in the harem of the Pasha Seid—where Gulnara, the Pasha's favorite, chafes at life in the harem, and longs for freedom and true love. Eventually she falls in love with the dashing invading corsair Corrado, kills the Pasha and escapes with the corsair—only to discover that he loves another woman. The Lustful Turk was a Victorian novel published in The novel focuses on a Western woman who is forced into sexual slavery in the harem of the Dey of Algiers.
Similar themes were expressed in the erotic novel , when a shipwrecked Western sailor is invited into a harem and engages in "illicit sex" with nine concubines. The novel The Sheik , by E. Hull , and the film of the same name are probably the most famous novels from the "desert romance" genre which flourished after the conclusion of the First World War , involving relationships between Western women and Arab sheiks. The novel has received strong criticisms for its central plot element: the idea that rape leads to love, i.
Historians have also criticized the orientalist portrayal of the Arabs in the novel and the film.
