Historical background


In 1775, his brother Sahib II Giray Khan of Crimea, is ousted by Devlet Giray IV. In 1777, Russian agents cause the overthrow of Khan and his replacement by his cousin Shahin, brother of his predecessor, who was by his father Ahmed son-small Devlet Giray II. Chahin Giray recognizes March 4, 1777 vassal of Catherine II of Russia. In October 1777 the Tatars, encouraged by the Sublime Porte, attack Russia. Chahin Giray took refuge with his protectors and Bakht Giray son of Crimea Giray, was proclaimed khan temporarily by the Turks before Chahin Giray is restored. On August 31, 1779, Chahin Giray was officially recognized as an independent khan by the Ottoman government. When in 1782 the nobles of the Khanate revolted again against him and replace it with Bahadir II Giray Chahin Giray immediately appealed to the Russians and Prince Grigori Potemkine intervenes in Crimea at the head of 70,000 men; he annexed the country on April 19, 1783. Chahin Giray is then expelled in Ottoman territory. The Turks take revenge from him in exile in Rhodes where he was strangled and beheaded in 1787..
