I was to impressed by humanity and honesty involved in following Islam, which is today over shadowed by ISIS. Still and all, it is a great series and there is a wealth of information to be gained from watching it. I love the entire series will there be more?

Why would the Turkish military establishment (at that time) accept Christian boys to be part of their troops if they did not see some chance of ‘loyalty’, if even it was a short term one (see Yeniseri/Janissary Corps). I love turkish history. In 1086 he was instrumental in defeating Süleyman, the sultan of Seljuks of Turkey in a battle between Süleyman and Tutush. There is information and historical facts about him that are kept in Turkish archives, within Ibn Arabi’s chronologies, in Western archives about Templars, in Byzantine’s chronologies and in legends – but this information only amounts to around 7 pages of sources according to the actor Engin Altan Duzyatan, who gave life to this great character.

After Ertugrul passed away, Turgut become the main support to Osman, and when Osman established his Sultanate he rewarded Turgut with the highest position, as a Governor of the new State. I watched the rise of the ottoman empire before finding out that ertugrul was the father of osman. Where trade and exchange, education is preferred to conflict and war. Surprisingly, Al-Aziz’s daughter, Ghaziya Khatun, married the Seljuk Sultan of Rum, Kaykhusraw II (Giyaseddin Ibn Kayqubad).
