Dorys a pseudonym for a Greek purports to be the son of a Minister to the Porte, Prince of Samos and ex-Govenor of Crete.

The author was the son of an official within Abdul Hamid's court and a journalist. The book is an attack on the personality of the Ottoman sultan Abdul Hamid II. He is portrayed as paranoid, violent, promiscuous, a hard task master, and so forth. The lack of dates for incidents or citations for sources does not allow the text to be easily verified.
