During the reigns of Muhammad Ali, his son Ibrahim Pasha, and his grandson Khedive Ismail, Turkish language and culture were fostered in Egypt via several routes: Trained personnel immigrated from Istanbul to serve as government officials and military officers. Intermarriage took place between Turkish officials and Egyptian noble families. Scientific, religious, and literary works were translated from Arabic, Persian, and European languages into Turkish. The children and slaves in the royal palace were carefully educated in Ottoman manners and culture.
