The Info List - Moniteur Ottoman


--- Advertisement ---



The Moniteur ottoman was a newspaper written in French and first published in 1831 on the order of Mahmud II.[1] It was the first official gazette of the Ottoman Empire, edited by Alexandre Blacque at the expense of the Sublime Porte.[1] Its name perhaps referred to the French newspaper Le Moniteur Universel. It was issued weekly.[2] Takvim-i vekayi was published a few months later, intended as a translation of the Moniteur into Ottoman Turkish.[1] After having been edited by former Consul for Denmark "M. Franceschi", and later on by "Hassuna de Ghiez", it was lastly edited by Lucien Rouet.[3] However, facing the hostility of embassies,[4] it was closed in the 1840s.[3] See also[edit]
