Radu cel Frumos și monograma “Io Radul voevod, din mila lui dumnezeu domn” Radu the Beautiful, the younger brother of Vlad Țepeș, and his Slavic monogram “Iw Радул вwєвда млостïѧ бжïєѧ гспднь” (yes it was an official language in Wallachia). Also, he remained an Orthodox Christian after many years spent serving Ottoman Empire and was Sultan’s lover.

I'm sorry, are you serious? Honestly... spreading religious beliefs in history is really weird way to preach Christianity.
"Christian victims of sexual trafficking" that was way too dramatic. Historical facts show that Radu wasn't a slave, neither abused victim, he was a favorite of Mehmed, his lover. Saying this incorrect things you just insult Mehmed as an historical personality as well, so please reconsider your irrelevant comment before it gets hidden for spreading historical lies.

it's incredible what you can do based on his portraits (in the illustrations he is not so "frumos")

Because there are no real depictions of Radu the voivode. All alleged portraits are actually not him, but his nephew Radu cel Mare. I think that real Radu was attractive enough to make sultan fall in love with him.
