The day in Manzikert, when Alparslan, the Seljuk Sultan, said to his entire army, "There is no sultan who imposes bans or a soldier who obeys orders. I am one of you and I will fight with you today." There are still many question marks on the subject: What was the cause of the Battle of Manzikert? Which side started the war? Were there Kurds in the Battle of Manzikert? How was the Byzantine Emperor captured and what happened during his captivity? What tortures was Romanos subjected to before he was murdered? Why was the Seljuk Sultan Alparslan killed shortly after the war? In the book Malazgirt 1071 - Kıyametin İlk Günü, which was prepared with an academic meticulous and immersive style, these questions both reached the most definitive answers and the victory of Manzikert, which was the turning point of the Seljuk era and Turkish history, is one of the information in contemporary sources.
