Event description
Smyrna (today’s İzmir) was one of the main hubs of commerce and cultural encounters in the nineteenth-century Ottoman Empire.

About this Event

The hectic life, already visible by Armenian, Jewish, Greek, and Muslim populations, set the pace in a bustling city with accelerating European contact. The atmosphere back then can only be explained as the new dynamism of an urban port city. Engaged in different trades and industries, the financiers, artisans, and mongers mostly gathered around similar economic interests. Located at Frank Street, a lively spot just across the Agia Fotini Orthodox Church, the Frenkhane Rossi (the Frank House) was among many commercial sites where those people ran their shops and shared the same space. The owner Marie Madeleine Rossi, the grandmother of Eduard Blacque Bey, was a Smyrniote who died from cholera at an early age. By adopting a legal framework, this talk analyzes a long-standing inheritance dispute centered around the Frenkhane Rossi.
