Erdoğan was born in the Kasımpaşa, Istanbul to which his family had moved from Rize Province in the 1930s. Erdoğan spent his early childhood in Rize, where his father was a captain in the Turkish Coast Guard. Throughout his life, he often returned to this spiritual home, and in 2015 he opened a vast mosque on a mountaintop near this village. The family returned to Istanbul when Erdoğan was 13 years old.
As a teenager, Erdoğan’s father provided him with a weekly allowance of 2.5 Turkish lira, less than a dollar. With it, Erdoğan bought postcards and resold them on the street. He sold bottles of water to drivers stuck in traffic. Erdoğan also worked as a street vendor selling simit (sesame bread rings), wearing a white gown and selling the simit from a red three-wheel cart with the rolls stacked behind glass. In his youth, Erdoğan played semi-professional football at a local club. Fenerbahçe wanted him to transfer to the club but his father prevented it. The stadium of the local football club in the district where he grew up, Kasımpaşa S.C. is named after him.
Erdoğan graduated from Kasımpaşa Piyale primary school in 1965, and İmam Hatip school, a religious vocational high school, in 1973.
Erdoğan wanted to pursue advanced studies at Mekteb-i Mülkiye, but Mülkiye only accepted students with regular high school diplomas and not İmam Hatip graduates. Mülkiye was known for its political science department, which trained many statesmen and politicians in Turkey. Erdoğan was then admitted to Eyüp High School, a regular state school, and eventually received his high school diploma from Eyüp.
He subsequently studied Business Administration at the Aksaray School of Economics and Commercial Sciences, now known as Marmara University’s Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences.
Erdoğan married Emine Gülbaran on 4 July 1978. They have two sons, Ahmet Burak and Necmettin Bilal, and two daughters, Esra and Sümeyye. His father, Ahmet Erdoğan, died in 1988 and his mother, Tenzile Erdoğan, died in 2011 at the age of 88.
He previously served as Prime Minister of Turkey from 2003 to 2014 and as Mayor of Istanbul from 1994 to 1998. He founded the Justice and Development Party (AKP) in 2001, leading it to election victories in 2002, 2007, and 2011 before standing down upon his election as President in 2014. He later returned to the AKP leadership in 2017 following the constitutional referendum that year. Coming from an Islamist political background and as a self-described conservative democrat, he has promoted socially conservative and liberal economic policies during his administration.
Erdoğan took the oath of office on 28 August 2014 and became the 12th president of Turkey.
