Alparslan and Manzikert Victory



Selçuk Beg mounted his horse and rode westward from Yengikent. He crossed mountains and rivers. He fought with his sword bareback on his horse to establish a homeland. His grandsons, Çağrı Beg and Tuğrul Beg, realized his dream and founded the Seljuk State. The Oghuz Turks had now laid the foundations of a powerful Turkish state in the east. Çağrı Beg’s son, Alp Arslan, also followed in his ancestors’ footsteps, taking an oath to carry the banner of Islam and Turkishness further, and worked with all his might for the sake of the word of God. He defeated the proud Byzantine ruler, Romanos Diogenes, at Malazgirt, opening the gates of Anatolia to the Turks and Muslims. Thus, the foundations of the Turkification and Islamization of Anatolia were laid. This book narrates the epic and extraordinary victory written by the Great Seljuk Sultan Alp Arslan on the Malazgirt Plain. It also highlights the superior efforts of the brave armies that established themselves in Anatolia and the spiritual conquests that sprouted from the seeds sown by the mystics of Horasan in these lands.
