Family tree of Ertugrul was written in 15th century -more than 100 years- after his death in 1280. No-one knows about his early life or his ancestors. Secondly, Ottomans' court written history doesn't tell us anything about power struggle between sons of Bayezid as do the old Turkish manuscricpts. Moreover, there is no mention of relation between Kayi tribe, Oghuz Khan and Osman I in old Turkish manuscripts; probably it was added later to justify Ottomans' rule and their honor. So, I doubt the family tree is false.

Lovely. I once read a book about Chengez Khan's descendants, very interesting.



Note that the Mughals, ancestors of Pakistanis, are descended from two lineages of Chengiz Khan: Emir Timur and Chagatai Khan (2nd son of Chengiz Khan.)

I heard the whole Kayı tribe thing was adopted by the Ottomans after the defeat against Timur...It's said that Timur claimed to be the actual ruler of the Turks with legitimate lineage to the ancient tribes of Turks and that's why lots of Turkish Beyliks in Anatolia actually joined the war on Timur's side against the Ottomans.

Of course, we should evaluate each historical dynamic according to its conditions and the spirit of its time. However, when we look at it today, Timur's two great heritages were, delaying the conquest of Istanbul for 50 years and being the spiritual father of today's Russian siberia by destroying Golden Horde.

The quirk of history, hundreds of years later, the Turks of Samarkand and Bukhara would send great aid to the Anatolian liberation war, but many historians would write it as Soviet aid.

The Mughals who ruled the subcontinent were also Timuri. They gave baiyah to the Ottoman Khalifah and fought against Safavi Iran jointly with them.

History is full of paradoxes.
