Don Joseph Nasi (1524–1579) was a Spanish-born Jewish diplomat and administrator, member of the House of Mendes, and influential figure in the Ottoman Empire during the rules of both Sultan Suleiman I and his son Selim II.

"Nasi", meaning "prince" in the Hebrew language, was likely (given his station) a cognomen at the start which developed into a family name in succeeding generations.

Joseph Nasi in 1632Edit

Joseph Nasi had been dead for some time when the Ring of Fire desposited the town of Grantville in the past. However, his grandson, Francisco Nasi, became a very important political figure in the emerging United States of Europe.

Mike Stearns described Nasi as essentially the Foreign Minister of the Ottoman Empire.
