Mehmed Köprülü, or Kuprili [1583 – 1661], became grand vizier of Sultan Muhammad IV in 1656. He reorganized the Ottoman fleet, conquered Transylvania, restored internal order (by executing dissidents), reformed the finances, and built forts along the Don and Dnieper rivers. During his vizierate the Ottoman Empire regained some of its former prestige and vitality. After Jacob Toorenvliet (1630-1719).
