Basha (or Pacha, in French) is a Turkish work (pasha) of Persian origin (Padshah or Padeshah) which means king. The Turks used to use this term to signify and define a high rank in the political system of the Ottoman Empire reserved in particular for governors or generals. Pasha was also an honorary title, the equivalent of ‘Monsignor’. Originally exclusively intended for commanders, the title was used later to distinguish any senior official or any other person that the court had decided to honor.
