In 1461, the grand vezir, Mahmud Pasha, marched on Sinop with the support of a rival prince of Candar. Skilled at diplomacy, Mahmud invited the reigning prince, Abu'l Hasan Ismail, to surrender the city peacefully, with the promise that his family would go unharmed and he would be granted a governership elsewhere in the Empire. He cautioned Ismail that should he refuse to comply, the city fortifications would not withstand the powerful assembled army. Mehmet appointed Ahmed as the governor of Kastamonu and Sinop, only to revoke Ahmed's appointment the following year.
