Ertugrul’s Anatolia was 13th century Anatolia.
Caroline Funkl writes that the Anatolia where these Turkish tribes reached, there were people of many races and religions inhabited for a long time, including Jews, Armenians, Kurds, Greek and Arabs.
In the west of the area there was a very weak Byzantine Empire in comparison to the past (ruling from Anatolia in the good days until the evening) and in the east the Seljuk who called themselves the Roman Seljuk.
Defeat by the Mongols in the middle of 13th century weakened the Seljuk and they were forced to yield to the Mongols.

The area is a lot of domestic, semi-house, looters, military campaign enthusiasts, slaves with different backgrounds, dervish, monks and scattered population. Pastors who are praying, take shelter The homeless farmers, city dwellers, peace and sacred places, were searching for restless souls, Muslim teachers, and merchants who were not afraid of danger, were spreading the traps of the passageways.
Finkel writes that the special feature of this disadministered area was the presence of Muslim dervishes. Like Christian monks, they were always travelling or staying among their followers and their lives became part of tradition.’The opening of the Darwishis were the symbol of this picture of Islam in the area, which was common with Sunni Islam of the kingdom of Saljuk in Anatolia.’

Why TV drama on Ertugrul’s life?
American University of Beirut’s sociologist Josh Karney raised a question in an article published in Middle Eastern review that ‘Why did the Turkish government choose Ertugrul instead of several famous characters? ‘
Josh Karni says that Sultan Suleiman (1566-1520) and Abdul Hameed II (1909-1876) in the Ottoman Empire is much more famous than Ertugrul, but there is no reason to make a TV serial on Ertugrol.
Turkish TV channel TRT’s most successful worldwide series ‘Daryllis Ertugrul’ is based on the progress of their Qai tribe fighting various enemies in Anatolia. ‘In a result, while very few people know about the historic character Ertugrul, TRT’s character is popular in Turkey and outside Turkey and is loved by people.’
In an article written in Sena 2018, Karney says several aspects of the series were clear in Turkey’s constitutional referendum ads that “there is no doubt that history and popular culture have been combined for political benefit.”
Carney says that in making a TV series about a character that people don’t know ‘the ease is that it can be presented in any color… (while) people are aware of the merits and drawbacks of popular personalities.’
Carney says earlier a series about Sultan Sulaiman couldn’t be as successful. ‘Making a series about Ertugrul was like filling in a blank slate at will.
