Fakhreddin bin Tapar bin Sanjaar bin Rumays bin Ridwaan bin Uwaaq bin Shaaghri bin Altun bin Sungur Alp or Fakhreddin Alpsunguroğlu (b. 1530- d. 1575) was the first Bey of Uzakarazi, and the father of his two successors Selim I and Ahmed I. Fakhreddin was a descendant of Sungur Alp, from whom the Alpsunguroğlu family descends. The family itself descends from the Hauteville dynasty and has Norman origins.


Fakhreddin's father, Tapar Bey had been a close confidante of Pargalı Ibrahim Pasha. However, after the latter's death was quickly supressed by Rüstem Pasha. Young Fakhreddin was adopted by Sinan Pasha, Rüstem's brother and an admiral.
