This paper discusses the career of Idris Karačović, the Ottoman Bey of the Military Frontier who as a child was the servant of Nikola Šubić Zrinski. During the Ottoman siege of Szigetvár in 1566 he was taken prisoner and subsequently became a Muslim. His Christian name is so far unknown. Two years after he was taken prisoner, Idris appeared in sources as the kapidžibaša (chief gatekeeper) of the Bosnian Sanjak-bey Ferhad Sokolović. At the end of 1579 and the beginning of 1580 Idris became Sanjak-bey of the Sanjak of Krupa and at that time his career as an Ottoman Military Frontier Bey started. After Krupa Idris was appointed Sanjak-bey of the Simontornya, Pakrac, Lika, Filek, Siget and Segedin sanjaks. In 1594 Idris became the beylerbey of the newly established Eyalet of Papa and officiated there until the second half of 1596 when he was appointed beylerbey of the Bosnia Eyalet. Idris governed this Eyalet for only one year, after that there are no traces of him in the sources. From the correspondence with the Hungarian magnate Ferencz Batthány it is evident that he maintained contact, although only indirectly, with Juraj IV Zrinski, the son of Nikola Šubić Zrinski. However, from this correspondence it is not clear whether Juraj knew that Idris had in his childhood been a servant of his father Nikola.
