An odalisque was a female slave in an Ottoman seraglio (the sequestered living quarters used by wives and concubines in a Turkish household). She was an assistant or apprentice to the concubines and wives, and she might rise in status to become one of them. Most odalisques were part of the Imperial Harem, that is, the household, of the sultan. The word "odalisque" originates from the Turkish odalik, meaning "chambermaid", from oda, "chamber" or "room". After Augustin de Saint-Aubin (1736 - 1807).
