Sultan Abdul Hamid II enjoyed absolute power over the territories of the Ottoman Empire from 1876 until 1909. The Sultan had a special hatred for the Ottoman Armenians. The missionary school system had produced an educated class of Armenians that began to advocate for civil and political rights. But political activism could lead to kidnapping, torture, or execution.
