From the first to work with bronze in the Anatolian plains to nomadic horsemen fighting with Chinese kingdoms, to the conquerors of Iran, to the heirs of Rome, to the mightiest power in the hemisphere, through a century of turmoil, to a revolution with radical vision and the republic it birthed.
This is the first part of one of the greatest stories in our history books. The story of Turkey.

Just a little nitpick :') The last Abbassid caliph resided in Cairo as a puppet to the Mameluks, not in Arabia. He was then taken to Constantinople and lived his life there, but its fairly certain that he never actually gave the title of caliph to the Ottoman Sultan Selim because that story only appeared about 200 years later.

Not only that ...but in Sunni tradition, a Arab of Quraysh tribe, and ONLY a Arab of Quraysh, could be Caliph. The Ottoman Sultans were not even Arabs. I have always try to understand how did Sunni Arabs, and other muslim accepted, if they sincerely accepted them as so. Fun fact, Jordanian King, and ISIS leaders are from Quraish tribes, so they could declare a Caliphate (and ISIS did so). Osama Bin Laden, Taliban leaders, Gulf Monarchies are not, they could not declare a Caliphate. And I suppose they would like to do so.

Thats an important point too. I’m not an expert on Ottoman dynastic history, but I assume that they probably found a way to somehow claim decent from Muhammed and the Quraish through some obscure, barely provable connection, which was a fairly common way how historic rulers legitimated their rule in general. For example, even centuries after the Islamic conquest of Persia, local Islamic rulers would invoke decent from the Sasanians through the female line (Since many Sasanian princesses were taken as brides by the conquerers) to appear legitamate. The Samanids, which are mentioned in the video did that for example.

As a Korean, Ataturk seemed to have been a huge deal just from a small paragraph I came across in high school. For one, he was a benevolent ruler who reformed every aspect of society, including the writing system. Not only that, he was a brilliant military general who saved the country from the brink of annhilation. We Koreans have two separate historical figures for each achievement from centuries ago, and we still commemorate King Sejong and Admiral Yi, with bronze statues on the heart of Seoul. Hence, when the Turkish people place a lot of respect towards Ataturk, it's relatable to me.

The bit about Ataturk moved me to tears. His whole story is so incredibly poetic. Introducing last names, taking on the name Ataturk and being the first and last of that name, thereby adopting the whole people as his heirs. Any country should be so lucky to have a national hero like this. Yes his record isn’t completely spotless, but it’s so much cleaner than so many other fathers of nations. Who but Ataturk could have forged a new nation out of the rotting corpse of the Ottoman Empire? I wonder if having such an idol be so recently alive isn’t dangerous though? Who could live up to such an example?

@Oguz Han Erdogan’s decisions the past 10 years has caused the country to be isolated more than ever. The economy and the people of Turkey are finding it hard to make ends meet after having a period of stability. Erdogan started off with great potential, now he is an egomaniac that controls every aspect of Turkish life with the flick of his finger.

@Ozgur Alich Explain "more isolated". Do you mean it economically? Because if so, there is no economic value that has been worse then before the "Erdogan" era. You can say whatever you want but there is no financial value which hasnt been improved then the values before Erdogan. If people cant make the end of the month then it was 5 years before worse and 20 years before even again worser then that! There is no number you can hive me that proves this feat wrong. Also the term "egomaniac" is not proper, if not wrong! Look at all the previous Presidents and come back again! You expect wealth and a bag of money that can compete with top countries while you arent even trying to earn that spot but yet you manage to vomit over people who do work hard! People who cant put things into perspective, who cant relate things to each other does not have the right to complain in my opinion. Its like the Turkish opposite party, never create an idea or do stuff but instant reaction to people who do create idea’s and who really put some effort to "build" things. You must not think people dont see this too!

Honestly Ataturk is one of the most inspiring people I’ve ever learned about. By no means was he perfect, but I’m always astounded by how selfless and ahead of his time he was. Im in the military so of course a brilliant military leader turned revolutionary political leader is uniquely suited to my sensibilities. But he really does seem like the greatest founding father a nation could have. He didn’t just make hard decisions, he made the HARDEST decisions. It makes me wish the American founding fathers had been as brave. Who knows how much farther we could have come by now had they abolished slavery, which was easily the hardest decision they faced.

I just hope that if you would so readily spit on his memory that you would be just as willing to put your life on the line for your country. I love my country therefore I serve in the military. Ataturk loved his country therefore he did the same. Any man that would spit on such service clearly has never faced danger on behalf of the country he loves. I hope that one day you come to understand what patriotism means, so that maybe you can respect the patriotism even of those you dislike.

The american founding fathers wanted to abolish slavery but could not do it as would upset and anger the southern slave states

The American founding fathers really did want to abolish slavery shortly after the revolutionary victory over the british. The problem was it would have brought upon a civil war as the southern colonies were adamant about maintaining their livelihood and the Founding fathers recognized they needed a united nation for the time being and it was not wise to start one war immediately after the closing of the revolutionary one What's great is that as the years went by the government of washington dc really did help add cracks into the slavery practices of the nation, from the treaty of Ghent, to the relocation of former american slaves back to Africa and founding their own nation, Liberia

Ataturk is truly an interesting figure. With the amount of reform he shoved through in his tenure, you'd think he'd be regiled by the people, but instead he's beloved.
elif 11 ай бұрын
It's because his reforms actually changed millions of peoples's (and their grandchildren's) lives for the better. He did not just founded a country, but along with that he also founded a whole new way of existing in the society without being discriminated against: women gained their human rights such as being an individual instead of someone's wife, daughter, mother (which was very rare at that time), freedom of thought began. Literally any bit of modernity and civilization we can see in Turkey today is thanks to him and his ideas, his reforms.

@elif It's not just a matter of good intent though. Today it's mainstream to consider France islamophobic to ban hijab, even from a secular perspective. And I imagine that the symbolic importance must have been stronger back then (maybe I'm wrong). It's like he taught a nation to eat their vegetables and they thank him for it, that's what makes his reforms so remarkable.

He is not just a human. He is an idea. I read tons of books about Ataturk and his revolutions. He modernized the education system, industrialized the country, he rebuilt people's ideas, he translated mathematical and geometrical terms into Turkish, he protected our country from fascism (yes, he prevented the establishment of the Faşist Konsey above the parliament) and he give rights to us. We owe lots of things to him. "Seeing me does not mean to seeing my face necessarily. Understanding my ideas and my goals are enough to see me." -Mustafa Kemal Atatürk

Despite being an awesome video about Turks and Turkey, it has major flaws and missing points in the ways that it almost teaches you wrong in certain aspects. I don't believe the creator of the video had some negative or positive bias, but it is clear that he over simplified crucial elements for the sake of shortening the video and keeping a balance between criticizing and complimenting Turks. I'll try to address some of them as well as addressing some missing things, one of them being the mention of Rome and their influence in Ottoman Empire. 1- Ottomans called themselves Romans, yes. But the creator of the video did not give you the crucial information that Ottoman Sultans called themselves Caesar in the official letters. And whole Ottoman bureaucratic system was influenced by the Romans, the creator does not also mention that Ottomans tried assert control in the church and made archbishop work in their favor. 2- Ottoman rulers did not speak in Persian - Farsi as the creator claims. They spoke Turkish, it was only the official letters between empire that Farsi was used. This was a huge mistake by the creator to claim Ottoman Sultans spoke a different language while being a Turkish Empire. 3- Ottoman Empire did not start as a small family that breaks free from the Seljuks when Seljuks were in trouble. This is oversimplification. Ertuğrul and Osman I was great commanders of Seljuk Empire, they formed tremendous amount of good relations with local Greek families. Those Greek families did not like the Roman rule, and Ottomans did not like the Seljuk rule, so they collectively formed an empire. 6 families played a key role in Ottoman foundation, 2 of them were Greek. Mikhailogulları and Evrenosoğulları. And by the way, Ottomans did not call themselves Ottoman Empire or Roman Empire, they called themselves "DEVLET-I ALIYYE" , the GREAT EMPIRE. 4- The purification*** of Turks from Balkans somehow is mentioned in the video softly, and only mentioned as 1.5 millions of Turks were forced off from Balkans being the first migrant crisis, while the creator says forcing off Armenians were GENOCIDE. If you argue that the main reason of the Armenian Genocide that Ottomans scapegoated Armenians for their loss against Russians, you can see the same scapegoating in Balkans that everything happened because of Muslims (Turks). I would expect the creator to use GENOCIDE term for that matter as well, but I am disappointed. The consensus is 3 millions of MUSLIM people, dominantly being Turkish were displaced, raped and killed.

@Emir Süleyman Tanrıkulu Interesting take. It should be clarified that the Ottoman Sultans and the Elite spoke *Ottoman* Turkish, which was very different from the Turkish spoken by the average Turk. Ottoman Turkish is highly influenced by the Farsi language, which of course still by no means makes it Persian. The term genocide shouldn't have been used at all in the video as it doesn't apply. As far as I'm concerned, there needs to be a systematic annihilation of a people, not just mass deportation and murder.

@Kraut To be honest, I would seriously really appreciate a video on Lichtenstein because it's a place that we all known is significant despite its small size, but we really don't know why. It's has a direct democracy, former tax haven, has pretty right-wing parties in power, yet is politically stable compared to its unstable neighbors. Also, how does Lichtenstein differ from places like Singapore, Luxembourg, Monaco, Qatar,? And in many ways, it is similar to Switzerland in that it was neutral during WWII, but it doesn't have the same kind of lockdown policy like them but why didn't get they Belgium'd? To be honest, I would absolutely love to have a video that explores these questions and shine a lot of light on the small and rich places in the world that are otherwise often away from the spotlight.

As backwardness resurfaces today, he became the symbol for Turks that reject primitive dogma and embrace modern civilization. As Islamists try to strike down his legacy, he became more powerful than they could possibly imagine.

@Tgm_rka888 That right there's exactly why they do it, my friend. On one of his speeches, Atatürk addresses the ANZAC forces and their families in Gallipolli War: "Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives, you are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore, rest in peace. There's no difference between the Johnies and the Mehmeds* to us, where they lie side by side here in this country of ours. You, the mothers who sent their sons from faraway countries, wipe away your tears. Your sons are now lying in our bosom, and are at peace. After having lost their lives on this land, they have become our sons as well." *: Local nicknames that were used for ANZAC and Turkish soldiers respectively. As you see, an can gather from the fact that every single year Turkey receives tons of visitors from Australia, we don't see each other as old enemies. Not even close...

Be careful what you wish for. One of the hidden dangers of a leader like Ataturk is that no matter how good a leader someone is, they can't rule forever. Ataturk ruled to the day he died, and that sets a precedent for lesser, inadequate, or corrupt successors to point to, as they cling to power. The last act of a truly great leader should be the passing of the torch to the next leader, and to resign from office without argument or ceremony, and that was the one thing he could not do.

A few attempts were made, but there was no real political union that could resist him overall. There was a lot of tension, and resistence, but none of it mattered because in the eyes of the public, and in the eyes of military elite, even for those who wanted to be more islamic, Atatürk was the great saviour. In Turkish state culture, legitimacy was a big thing. You needed to have legal justification for what you're doing, before, Ottoman Sultan was the symbol of the justification, Nizam-ı Alem (The World Order) relied by the Sultan, and his dynasty not breaking. Entire state was built around the concept of Ottoman dynasty, and so long as there's no big political crisis, anything Sultan's government did, was just. No matter how contradictory it is with religion, or any other major concept. A way would be found. Before Islam, the Khan was the embodiment of Mandate of Heaven. The term for that is ''Kut'' in Turkish, a legitimate Khan, from the golden line of the Steppes, could rule over nomadic tribes as the legitimate ruler. And his will and existence was the justification for political activities, no matter whom they upset There was no counter measure for Atatürk in his time. Nobody even came close to him in gravitas, and he was quite the political genius. In one instance, there was huge resistence to his government, and it seemed the majority of parlaiment was against him. He did a pro gamer move, knowing how parlementaries are like, he resigned from the office, and said he will leave to the parlaiment to remake the government and who will be in the chamber of ministers. Problem with that, the opposition was united to resist his aggressive policies, but they hardly got along with each other, so when they failed to do anything with his leave midst of a war, they just handed the entire authority to him, weakening their own position even further because of stubbornly disagreeing everything.

This was absolutely fascinating to hear about. Thank you for making this, it was very enjoyable learning about something I feel I really ought to have been taught about in school. I also appreciated the acknowledgement of Christianitys part to play in the destruction of Rome. I had a professor in my brief stint at college outright fail my paper stating extremely similar points and said paper was put up on display for the class as an example of completely missing the point of the prompt followed by ridicule and accusations of stupidity from said professor. The prompt was to examine explanations for the failure of the Roman empire. Your points as well as many of the often repeated others were mentioned. I'm sure the professor's proud christian rebirthing had no impact on the reception of the paper.

Amazing video, I learned a lot. A small nitpick: you portray Seljuks as originating from Oghuz Turks who in turn originate from Tatars. Oghuz Turks did not originate from Tatars. In fact, the term "Tatar" is very confusing because it can mean 3 different things in different contexts. Originally Tatars were a Mongolian clan that eventually came to rule the Golden Horde (so they were not even Turks). Then the term "Tatar" came to be associated with the population of the Golden Horde at large, even though it was mostly comprised of Turkic-speaking Volga Bulgars and Kipchaks (the term "Tatar" stuck to this day with the former, while the latter is called Kazakhs today). And then, after Russia conquered Kazan and started expanding further eastward, they started attributing the label "Tatar" to all the disparate Turkic-speaking ethnicities they encountered, even if they had nothing to do with the Golden Horde or with each other. So although the term "Tatar" came to be associated with Turkic-speaking ethnicities, back in the 8th to 10th centuries when Oghuz Turks became a thing, the term "Tatar" had nothing to do with Turks yet, if it indeed existed at all. It only became prominent after the Mongolian invasion.

To begin with thank you. In my opinion this is marvellously done. Most of such films/ documents are rather biased. It is either how brave we Turks were and how the (ungrateful) other ethnicities have betrayed us so we lost our empire or the other way around, claiming how evil the Turks were/ are. I am surprised and also a bit sad that this was not done by Turkey or a Turkish scholar given the fact it is about our own history/ legacy. You have explained in an understandable language and in a very clear chronological line the steps taken by the Turks from the Altai mountains to Anatolia and the transformation of a nomadic tribe into a society that is now. And you are correct. The transformation is still ongoing. Next year the republic will be 100 years. Compared to other societies it is virtually close to nothing. Even the USA is older than Turkey. We came a long way and have some to go. Again, thank you so much for your efforts.

My impression of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk is similar to the one I have of Otto von Bismarck. On the one hand, I admire the lengths these men went to in order to unify their nations and progress them socially (yes, Bismarck was very conservative, but he still created the first welfare state in the world). Even if these men assumed dictatorial powers, they were overall benevolent in their use of that power. On the other hand, the seeds these men sowed for authoritarian institutions is undeniable. Sure, as long you're a benevolent dictator, you can lead your nation to greater progress and prosperity, but whoever inherits your authoritarian institutions may not (and will not, based on the hindsight of history) be so altruistic. To his credit, Ataturk did try to set up political opposition for himself, knowing that a democracy needs such political pluralism to be and remain a democracy, but he still left behind a legacy of militaristic force that denied pluralism. Based on what I know of Turkey's current socio-politics (and the heavy foreshadowing of the consequences of the Ataturk's forceful policies in this video), it's clear Turkey didn't turn out into the progressive republic Ataturk had envisioned. But I have to say, speaking as someone who knew next to nothing about this topic at first, this video was a great primer on Turkish history. On to part 2!

Amazing video! Just one Note. In the battle of Lepanto, both navies consisted mainly of rowing galleys, with the turkish navy being 278 galleys and galliots and the Christian having 206 galleys and other few different ships, as this were still the main battleship in the Mediterranean for their speed and agility, in contrast to the Atlantic.

I've been saying for a decade to my friends that I thought Lepanto was the battle that changed the course of the Ottoman Empire. I'm glad to see your reasoning backing it up.

I got 25 minutes into this, finished the section on the collapse of the Seljuk invasion because of the Mongolians, and realized I still had over an hour of video left. Not only did this video almost immediately calm my anxiety attack, but my History-Major brain was fascinated by every second of it. Then I realized this is part 1 of 2. Nice

the Turkish heroic resistance against the colonial powers is not to be underestimated, but they were not the only ones. a bit earlier, the Soviet republics of the future Union were invaded by 14 countries, and in 1918 the Soviets lost control of most territories, but the Red Army eventually managed to defeat them all. with the support of the internationalist proletariat in those very invading countries.
