In the early nineteenth century, there were 20,000–30,000 Turks in Egypt out of a total population of about 3 million. Turkish speakers comprised the majority of the royal family of Muhammad Ali, government officials, and high-level military officers. They also included scholars and writers. The chapter considers the social position of Turkish speakers at this time, and their relationships with the other ethnic groups in Egypt.
