English: Sultan Vahideddin (Mehmed VI) departing from the backdoor of the Dolmabahçe Palace in Istanbul. A few days after this picture was taken, the Sultan was deposed and exiled (along with his son) on a British warship to Malta (November 17, 1922), then to San Remo, Italy, where he eventually died in 1926. His body was buried in Damascus at the courtyard of the Tekke of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent. Turkey was declared a Republic on October 29, 1923, and the new Head of State became President Mustafa Kemal Atatürk.
