 Sultan Murad V established close friendships with many poets of the period, including Ziya Pasha and Namık Kemal. Sultan Murad V, who was under the influence of foreign cultures, played the piano. He even composed compositions in Western music style. Sultan Murad the Fifth, who became friends with European princes and corresponded with them, always kept local and foreign newspapers around him. Sultan Murad V, who was fascinated by seeing Europe closely during his European trip with Sultan Abdulaziz, established a close friendship with the Welsh Prince (later King Edward VII), whom he met in England during this trip.
