This is Episode number 57th of Season 4 with Urdu Subtitles. So, these three persons in messenger’s attires were in fact Mongols spies. And, with a stolen secret jetter in hand… in messenger’s attire they penetrated all the way into the very fortress, ha? Not only here, Artuk Bey, but… these poor excuses for Mongols have seeped into every pore of our State. It’s true. Gunalp Bey. So, are you going to question these three blackguards closely and force them to speak? I need to let them leave the fortress safe and alive. I’ll let them leave, so that they may lead me to their very lair. That way we can lay bare the entire network they’ve woven. That’s goodth inking] In that case, I will assign Dumrul to stay here. Take him with you. It would be wise to send word to our Sutan regarding this situation. I already took care of that matter, Artuk Bey. I’ve sent a letter to our Sultan explaining to him the whole situation. He will increase security measures all over the State, In shaa Allah.
Eyvallah (may it be so) Gunalp Bey, the one who organized all this. . is none other than that Devil named Noyan. Now that the Mongols have gone blind with madness and rage… Ertugrul Bey going to Ogeday Khan, n his company is not a good thing at all. We have to take care of these evil-doers here… and once Ertugrul Bey completes his mission there . he will return unharmed and safe too. In shaa Allah. In shaa Allah. I am the Seljuks’ Bey of Principality. I’ve got many Turkmen tribes under my jurisdiction in the west. However, I would like to know why you presented me with this offer. Ertugrul Bey, you would understand that while… I am conquering the world, having to deal with your Sultan is time-wasting for me. I’m striving to establish my hegemony over the world following the path of my father Genghis Khan. And know that, to that end no obstacle will impede me. What about the Islam world?
Islam world… does not jeopardize me. It never did Your Caliph and the Sultans of the Islamic States… will be guaranteed the freedom of worship and belief… provided that they swear their allegiance to me… and continue to regularly pay their taxes. I am aware how strong your devotion to your religion is I hope you are satisfied with my answer to your question. I do not consider Islam my enemy. On the contrary, it is a religion I hold in high esteem. But, you are also witness that Sultan Giyaseddin. obstinately refuses to give up on his desire for power… despite the fact that I have increased his taxes.
I reckon that ensuing bloodshed in such a challenging struggle comes with a price. Of course you will be recompensed… for the services rendered to me, Ertugrul Bey. When you swear your allegiance to me. .. I will make you the Sultan of the Seljuk State. Brother, our Bey should have come our a while ago. If he stays a bit longer, I’ll not stand for it, I will break in. Welcome here, brothers. Some sheep stew with a goat milk for you. It’s one of the most traditional Turkish foods. You must have missed it. Help yourself. I wonder if you are a Turk too Yes, I am a Turk too, brother. Are you with them for the glory and prestige, as well? No, Pm not, brother. Sometime ago, we fell prey to them. And both, I and my tribe, have been dragged into a great disaster. After that, I joined the army of Ogeday Khan. Did Kutlubay lure you into their trap? It was not Kutlubay’s doing, brother. It was Noyan’s. How did he lure you into his trap? Noyan has a younger sister. By the name of Alangoya.
That one, along with her men… wormed her way into our tribe, pretending to be leather dealers. And soon enough, they have brought us to ruin. Leather dealers, were they? Yes, leather dealers. Who else was with her, with this Alangoya? She had a brother with her. He was an outstanding hunter. At least he claimed to be so. There were other men as well, but we didn’t meet them. A hatun, who is a leather dealer… and whose brother is an outstanding hunter. That must be Almila. Aim la Aim la1 Being graced with the special favor of Khan above all Khans, Ogeday Khan… makes me feel extremely privileged. Did this axe in my hand convince you to make this decision or… did the scales really fell from your eyes, Ertugrul? I want to know that for sure, Ertugrul Bey. I knew in advance, that I would be presented with such an offer. Oh did you, now? How did you know it? While we were on the road, Noyan has . spoken to me and put in a lot of effort to bring me around to the idea.
His efforts were not in vain. My decision is final. I would like to swear my fealty to you. I will send my Alps promptly to deliver the signed peace treaty to my Sultan, and… it would serve to raise my reputation in his eyes, for yet another notch. That is good reasoning My Khan, with your permission. I have few words to say. What about Oguz Beys? What will happen if you fail to beno State Dignitaries to your will, Ertugrul? In that case, on behalf of Khan of all Khans, Ogeday Khan… if there’s blood to be shed, I will not shy away from that. All I want is for Muslims and non-Muslims alike, to be left in peace.
Ertugrul Bey . under Genghis Khan’s Code of Laws (Yassa)… Persons who are dedicated to religious practices and leaders of the Riyaset… [Rjyaset = Main executive body of the Islamic communities] the Muezzin, and those who bathe the bodies of the dead. [Muezzin – a Muslim crier who calls for daily prayers] lawyers, physicians and scholars, are to be exempted from t xes. . and will not be obliged to work. [Yassa the ecret Code of Laws] And of course, those who swear their fealty to me and regularly pay their taxes Abiding be the laws of my father is more important for me then anything else. Put your heart at ease, Ertugrul Bey. When we went after the bandits who raided the caravan of leather dealers… Almila Hatun and her men have already killed all the bandits. My Ertugrul Bey thought that to be strange at first, but… But such a possibility did not come to mind to any of us.
That Hatun is Noyan’s sister, brother Well, as it turns out, she coiled in our bosom like a snake. I wonder what is the situation in our tribe now? And if that hatun has done some mischief already? Ah, brother, she did. Of course she did. Making use of our absence she has done something evil for sure. And we are still being held up here When will this be over with that Ogeday or whatever he is? Hold on there, brother Hold on there. Now we have no other choice but to wait for our Bey. And to pray that nothing bad befalls our tribe until our return. Hmph Do you have anything else to add, Noyan? After all, you will lay your hands on Seljuks, Nikea and Constantinople. . together with Ertugrul, being as one.
I do. my Khan. We need a little more from him than his words, in order to be. . convinced of the sincerity of his intentions, my Khan. You used to say that Ertugrul Bey always keeps his promises I did not hear that he ever broke the promise. But, when it suits him… he is capable of flexing the truth like steel on anvil and… turning it into a sword which would pierce the heart of his enemy. Hmh. Therefore, he must pledge one of his sons to us, as collateral… that he will be true to his word. That way, if he breaks his oath… he would pay for it with his son’s life. Thus, he would not be able to escape… from yours as well as from my wrath, wherever he goes in this wide world. Since you claim that you have confidence in me… then you can entrust your son to me, to bring him up as… a mighty commander of the Mongol s army.
