Devlet Hatun (died 1412 or January 1414; meaning "State"; also known as Devletşah) was the wife of Sultan Bayezid I and the mother of Sultan Mehmed I.

Devlet Hatun was born in Kütahya to an Anatolian prince, Süleyman Şah Çelebi, the ruler of the Anatolian Germiyan dynasty. She was a descendant of Rumi, founder of the Sufi order of Mevlevis, through his son Sultan Walad, whose daughter Mutahhare Abide Hatun was her mother. The impressive lineage of Devlet descended from the powerful princes and charismatic sheikhs.
Inscription at the entrance of "Devlet Hātûn Türbe" states that she was a Germiyanids and her mother was a granddaughter of Mawlana Rumi. "Devlet Hātûn Türbe" had been constructed by Ottoman Sultan Mehmed I for the memory of his mother Devlet Hātûn. According to the inscription she died on 1412.

Süleyman asked for Ottoman support against Karaman threat and consequently his daughter Devlet Hatun married to Ottoman şehzade Bayezid as his first wife. But this support was a very costly one, because Ottomans acquired the most prosperous part of the Germiyan beylik as a dowry. Even Germiyan capital Kütahya was a part of the dowry. She gave birth to Mehmed I who became the next Sultan of the Ottoman Empire. Süleyman Çelebi - The First Sultan of Rumelia, İsa Çelebi - Governor of Anatolia 1390, of Balıkesir, and Musa Çelebi - The Second Sultan of Rumelia were all eliminated by Mehmed Çelebi in a decade long succession war that followed Bayezid's defeat by Timur. During the succession tribute they were not given Germiyan support, but in fact the Germiyan ruler Yakup delivered Musa into the hands of Mehmed, while Isa found support with several of the Anatolian principalities but not with Germiyan. Düzmece Mustafa claimed the throne second time after the death of Mehmed I in 1421 and defeated by Mehmed I'son Murad II. She died in January 1414[2] or 1412 according to the inscription at the entrance of "Devlet Hātûn Türbe" in Bursa.

The tomb of Devlet Hatun stands alone in Bursa neighborhoods separate from the mosque complexes that contained the tombs of the sultans and other mbers of the dynasty, following two royal mothers, Nilüfer Hatun and Gülçiçek Hatun. It is well tended by the Bursa neighbourhood in which it is situated and functions as a local pilgrimage site. On the board located outside her tomb in Bursa, gives details about her:

    It was built by Sultan Mehmed I. Devlet Hatun was the wife of Sultan Bayezid I and the mother of Sultan Mehmed I. She was the daughter of a Germiyan prince. Her mother was the granddaughter of Mevlâna Celâleddini Rumi. Devlet Hatun died in 1412.
