Hun was not an ethnicity itself, but a large tribal confederative structure.. That is why Turks already had a rich genetic pool before the full conquest of Anatolia region..

    Bulgarians, whose deads had European (and world) reflections:
    Tervel of Bulgaria (700–721)

    On 25 May 717 Leo III the Isaurian was crowned Emperor of Byzantium. During the summer of the same year the Arabs led by Maslama crossed the Dardanelles and besieged Constantinople with 200,000 men. According to Arab sources his fleet consisted of 2,500 ships.
    Leo III made a plea to Tervel for help, relying on the treaty of 716 and Tervel agreed. The first clash between the Bulgarians and the Arabs ended with a Bulgarian victory. During the very first stages of the siege the Bulgarians appeared in the Muslim rear and large part of their army was destroyed and the rest were trapped. The Arabs built two trenches around their camp facing the Bulgarian army and the walls of the city. They persisted with the siege despite the severe winter with 100 days of snowfall. In the spring, the Byzantine navy destroyed the Arab fleets that had arrived with new provisions and equipment, while a Byzantine army defeated Arab reinforcements in Bithynia. Finally, in early summer the Arabs engaged the Bulgarians in battle but suffered a crushing defeat. According to Theophanes the Confessor, the Bulgarians slaughtered some 22,000 Arabs in the battle. Shortly after, the Arabs raised the siege. The Byzantine-Bulgarian victory of 718 and the victory of the Frankish king Charles Martel in the battle of Tours stopped the Muslim invasion in the interior of Europe.

    Tzar Simeon I of Bulgaria (893 – 27 May 927) (Simeon The Great)

    During Simeon's reign, Bulgaria reached its cultural apogee, becoming the literary and spiritual centre of Slavic Europe. It was in the Preslav Literary School and Ohrid Literary School, founded under Boris, that the main literary work in Bulgaria was concentrated during the reign of Simeon.
    The late 9th and early 10th century constitute the earliest and most productive period of medieval Bulgarian literature.Having spent his early years in Constantinople, Simeon introduced Byzantine culture to the Bulgarian court, but eliminated its assimilative effect by means of military power and religious autonomy.The disciples of Cyril and Methodius, among whom Clement of Ohrid, Naum and Constantine of Preslav, continued their educational work in Bulgaria, actively translating Christian texts, such as the Bible and the works of John Chrysostom, Basil of Caesarea, Cyril of Alexandria, Gregory of Nazianzus, Athanasius of Alexandria, as well as historic chronicles such as these of John Malalas and George Hamartolus, to Bulgarian.The reign of Simeon also witnessed the production of a number of original theological and secular works, such as John Exarch's Six Days (Šestodnev), Constantine of Preslav's Alphabetical Prayer and Proclamation of the Holy Gospels, and Černorizec Hrabǎr's An Account of Letters. Simeon's own contribution to this literary blossoming was praised by his contemporaries, for example in the Praise to Tsar Simeon preserved in the Zlatostruj collection and Simeon's Collection,to which the tsar personally wrote an addendum.

    Saint Clement of Ohrid (840 – 916)


    Saint Clement of Ohrid (Old Church Slavonic: Климє́нтъ Охрїдьскъ, Bulgarian and Macedonian: Свети Климент Охридски) was a medieval Bulgarian saint, scholar, writer and enlightener of the Slavs. He was the most prominent disciple of Saints Cyril and Methodius and is often associated with the creation of the Glagolitic and Cyrillic scripts, especially their popularisation among Christianised Slavs. He was the founder of the Ohrid Literary School and is considered as a patron of education and language by most Slavic nations. He is regarded to be the first bishop of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church, one of the seven Apostles of the Bulgarian Empire (Bulgaria), the patron saint of the Republic of Macedonia, the city of Ohrid and the Macedonian Orthodox Church.

    Vasil Levski (18 July 1837 – 18 February 1873)

    Vasil Levski, (Bulgarian: Васил Левски, originally spelled Василъ Лѣвскій,[2] pronounced) born Vasil Ivanov Kunchev, (Васил Иванов Кунчев), was a Bulgarian revolutionary and a national hero of Bulgaria. Dubbed the Apostle of Freedom, Levski ideologised and strategised a revolutionary movement to liberate Bulgaria from Ottoman rule. Founding the Internal Revolutionary Organisation, Levski sought to foment a nationwide uprising through a network of secret regional committees.
    After working as a teacher in Bulgarian lands, he propagated his views and developed the concept of his Bulgaria-based revolutionary organisation, an innovative idea that superseded the foreign-based detachment strategy of the past. In Romania, Levski helped institute the Bulgarian Revolutionary Central Committee, composed of Bulgarian expatriates. During his tours of Bulgaria, Levski established a wide network of insurrectionary committees. Ottoman authorities, however, captured him at an inn near Lovech and executed him by hanging in Sofia.

    Corneli(u)s Haga (Schiedam, 28 January 1578 Den Haag, 12 August 1654) was the first ambassador of the Dutch Republic to the Ottoman Empire.
    Cornelius Haga was born in Schiedam. His father was Dirk Lambrechtszoon, merchant and member of the town council of Schiedam, and organist of the church there. Haga was educated at the Latin school in Schiedam before he studied law at the University of Leiden. He went into diplomatic service and became an envoy in Stockholm. After this he became the first diplomatic representative of the republic in Constantinople from 1612 to 1639. He laid the foundations of diplomatic relations and he erected numerous consular posts at the most important ports and trade-centra in the Ottoman Empire; Patras, Thessaloniki, Athene, Gallipoli, Izmir, Aleppo, Sido, Dairo, Tunis and Algiers.
    Haga, who was married to Alithea Brasser, received the capitulation of the Ottoman sultan, Ahmed I in 1612. This allowed the Dutch to trade with the Ottoman Empire under their own jurisdiction. The sultan also granted the Dutch several privileges, including exemption of certain taxes and limited autonomy within the empire.

    In 1639 Haga returned to the Netherlands. In 1645 he became president of the High Council of Holland, Zeeland and West-Friesland, a function that he kept until his death in 1654.

    Cornelius Haga and his wife Alithea Brasser were buried in the Great church of Schiedam. His descendants added an epitaph to his grave, reading, amongst others Foris ac domi et de patria bene meritus fuit or He served his country well, both at home and abroad.



    Ogier Ghiselin de Busbecq (1522, Comines - October 28, 1592; Latin: Augerius Gislenius Busbequius; sometimes Augier Ghislain de Busbecq) was a 16th century Flemish writer, herbalist and diplomat in the employ of three generations of Austrian monarchs. He served as ambassador to the Ottoman Empire in Constantinople and wrote a book about his time there, the Turkish Letters.

    He was the illegitimate son of the Seigneur de Busbecq, Georges Ghiselin, and his mistress Catherine Hespiel, and was later legitimated.[1] He grew up at Busbecq Castle (in present-day Bousbecque, Nord, France), studying in Wervik and Comines - at the time, all part of Spanish West Flanders, a province of the Holy Roman Empire.

    His intellectual gifts led him to advanced studies at the Latin-language University of Leuven, where he registered in 1536 under the name Ogier Ghislain de Comines. From there, he went on to study at a number of well-known universities in northern Italy, including taking classes from Giovanni Battista Egnazio in Venice.

    Busbecq, like his father and grandfather, chose a career of public service. He entered into the service of the Austrian monarch Ferdinand I in approximately 1552. In 1554, he was sent to England for the marriage in Winchester of the English queen Mary Tudor to Philip II of Spain.

    In 1554 and again in 1556,[1] Ferdinand named him ambassador to the Ottoman Empire under the rule of Suleiman the Magnificent. His task for much of the time he was in Constantinople was the negotiation of a border treaty between his employer (the future Holy Roman Emperor) and the Sultan over the disputed territory of Transylvania. He had no success in this mission while Rustem Pasha was the Sultan's vizier, but ultimately reached an accord with his successor Semiz Ali Pasha.

    During his stay in Constantinople, he wrote his best known work, the Turkish Letters, a compendium of personal correspondence to his friend, and fellow Hungarian diplomat, Nicholas Michault, in Flanders and some of the world's first travel literature. These letters describe his adventures in Ottoman politics and remain one of the principal primary sources for students of the 16th century Ottoman court. He also wrote in enormous detail about the plant and animal life he encountered in Turkey. His letters also contain the only surviving word list of Crimean Gothic, a Germanic dialect spoken in some isolated regions of the Crimean at the time.[2]

    Busbecq discovered an almost complete copy of the Res Gestae Divi Augusti, an account of Roman emperor Augustus' life and accomplishments, at the Monumentum Ancyranum in Ancyra. He identified its origin from his reading of Suetonius and published a copy of parts of it in his Turkish Letters.[3]

    He was an avid collector, acquiring valuable manuscripts, rare coins and curios of various kinds. Among the best known of his discoveries was a 6th-century copy of Dioscorides' De Materia Medica, a compendium of medicinal herbs. The emperor purchased it after Busbecq's recommendation; the manuscript is now known as the Vienna Dioscorides. His passion for herbalism led him to send Turkish tulip bulbs to his friend Charles de l'cluse, who acclimatized them to life in the Low Countries. Less than a century later tulip mania was sweeping the United Provinces and ruining its financial markets. Busbecq has also been credited with introducing the lilac to Europe (though this is debated)[2] as well as the Angora goat.[1]

    He returned from Turkey in 1562 and became a counsellor in the court of Emperor Ferdinand in Vienna and tutor to his grandchildren, the sons of future Emperor Maximilian II. Busbecq ended his career as the guardian of Elisabeth of Austria, Maximilian's daughter and widow of French king Charles IX. He continued to serve the Austrian monarchy, observing the development of the French Wars of Religion on behalf of Rudolf II. Finally, in 1592 and nearing the end of his life, he chose to leave his residence in Mantes outside of Paris for his native West Flanders, but was assaulted and robbed by members of the Catholic League near Rouen. He died a few days later. His body is buried in the castle chapel at Saint-Germain-sous-Cailly, and his heart was embalmed and sent to the family tomb in Bousbecque.

    William I, Prince of Orange (24 April 1533 10 July 1584), also widely known as William the Silent (Dutch: Willem de Zwijger), or simply William of Orange (Dutch: Willem van Oranje), was the main leader of the Dutch revolt against the Spanish that set off the Eighty Years' War and resulted in the formal independence of the United Provinces in 1648. He was born in the House of Nassau as Count of Nassau-Dillenburg. He became Prince of Orange in 1544 and is thereby the founder of the branch House of Orange-Nassau.
    A wealthy nobleman, William originally served the Habsburgs as a member of the court of Margaret of Parma, governor of the Spanish Netherlands. Unhappy with the centralisation of political power away from the local estates and with the Spanish persecution of Dutch Protestants, William joined the Dutch uprising and turned against his former masters. The most influential and politically capable of the rebels, he led the Dutch to several successes in the fight against the Spanish. Declared an outlaw by the Spanish king in 1580, he was assassinated by Balthasar Grard (also written as "Gerardts") in Delft four years later.

    Siegfried Kabus





    This hero I didn't know about until today; he should be a legend and hero rather than von Stauffenberg. This guy fought the good fight even after the war.
    January 3, 1947, Stuttgart: Siegfried Kabus, foreground, and other defendants sit in a military government courtroom during their trial on charges that they bombed three German denazification courts and the Stuttgart military police headquarters. During the trial, ringleader Kabus was described by one witness as the fuehrer of a planned NS government told the court Adolf Hitler was alive, but partially paralyzed, in Spain. Kabus was found guilty and sentenced to death by hanging; others were given prison sentences.

    Siegfried Kabus (1923 -?) Was an SS officer and former member of the Hitler Youth that, after the end of World War II, and the atrocities committed by the occupation troops, led a group of soldiers of the SS and Hitler Youth in a guerrilla war against foreign troops and German collaborators (inder the reistance org. called Werwolf). It is believed that a Kabus was teh founder of Stuttgar cell of ODESSA.

    Siegfried Kabus tried unsuccessfully to unite the resistance groups against the Allies. Americans recognized only about 40 casualties by direct action of this class of guerrillas. At the same time the invaders censored all news about it in the media on the grounds that could attract more Germans to join the resistance. The methods used by the resistance included the use of snipers, gunmen and the use of plastic explosives and mines against U.S., Soviet and British troops. To curb acts of sabotage, the Allies resorted to collective punishment as the shooting of civilians, killing of other prisoners in retaliation and the use of artillery in the indiscriminate bombing of towns and villages in which they were any armed opposition.

    On January 3, 1947, Siegfried Kabus was tried by U.S. troops along with 10 alleged collaborators were accused of over 30 counts of terrorism including the bombing of three centers of denazification and a U.S. Military police station in Stuttgart. Towards the end of 1946, Kabus told Americans that he believed the story that Adolf Hitler had committed suicide was war propaganda. He argued that he had been in contact with Martin Bormann and Hitler was alive in Spain [in The Last Nazis - ϟϟ Werewolf Guerrilla Resistance in Europe 1944-1947 - Perry Biddiscombe]. On executions issued during the Nuremberg Trials he said that statements were not law product but simply murders, and he was happy that Hermann Goering evade the gallows by swallowing poison [Indiana Evening Gazette. 21 nov 1946].


    On January 21, 1947, Judge Marshall Herro read the sentence of death by hanging for Kabus, while other members were sentenced to 30 years imprisonment with hard labor.

    That same year the Allies tried to stop the discontent over the abuses of the occupation troops. The Marshall Plan was one of the initiatives carried forward. His goal was the reconstruction of Germany, which managed to appease a people tired after long years of war.

    In 1948 the death sentence was commuted to life imprisonment, by order of the U.S. military governor, Lucius Clay [Indiana Evening Gazette. 21 nov 1946].

    Otto Von Bismarck, one of the greatest Balance of Power politicians in Western History.


    "Otto Eduard Leopold, Prince of Bismarck, Duke of Lauenburg (1 April 1815 30 July 1898), simply known as Otto von Bismarck, was a conservative German statesman who dominated European affairs from the 1860s to his dismissal in 1890. In 1871, after a series of short victorious wars, he unified most of the German states (whilst excluding some, most notably Austria) into a powerful German Empire under Prussian leadership.[1][2] This created a balance of power that preserved peace in Europe from 1871 until 1914."
