Osman and the Christian prince story


I just overheard the story of Osman and the Christian prince on TV and would like to know how the story ended. I tried doing a search on the internet for the story but couldn't find it.
I'm not sure which Osman this was but he was an Ottoman sultan . From what I heard a princess rejected a Christian prince when he asked for marriage. The prince got angry and tried to kill Osman cause he blamed Osman for the princess' rejection. What happened to Osman and the prince next?

Do you remember the name of the TV show or any additional detail? I haven't heard a story like that before, probably another strange tradition about Osman I

I've found nothing about that story. The closest thing I know is the story of Nilüfer.

I have found a similar story which involves Osman falling in love with a Christian woman, Irene, and converting to Christianity for her. Irene was previously a woman in service of a rebellious vassal of Osman's father, the Sultan.

Needless to say, the story is 100% untrue and made up. I mean, in the story Osman is the son of Amurath and Roxana. Amurath was Murad I and Roxana was the wife of Alexander the Great, so...yeah.

I've never doubted that that story is false, I was just interested in the story's provenience. Thanks.

Hurrem Sultan, one of the consorts of Sultan Suleiman I, was also called Roxelana, which sounds a lot like Roxana.

Indeed. Still doesn't change the fact that she lived centuries after Osman and therefore couldn't be his mother.
