The Dadyan family, hailing from Armenian roots, was prominently recognized for their industrial contributions in the Ottoman Empire. Beyond being illustrious factory owners – holding an unparalleled monopoly on the empire’s gunpowder industry for over a century – they also donned hats as political advisors. Their profound understanding and involvement with the Ottoman banking system further underpinned their significance.
A notable figure, Oganes Dadyan, took the helm as the director of a gunpowder factory back in 1845, cementing the family’s legacy in the annals of Ottoman history.
