A spectacular epic, "Khan Asparukh" was made to celebrate the 1,300th anniversary of the founding of Bulgaria.
Sumptuously filmed, with over 50,000 extras, the film narrates the history of these momentous events, from the fall of Great Bulgaria in the Asian steppes, through Asparukh's perilous trek west, and the decisive battles with the Byzantines.
In 680-81, in alliance with the Slavs, he inflicted tunning defeats on the Roman legions and forced the Byzantine Empire to recognize the formation of the new state of Bulgaria in the lands where it still exists today. /store/historical/historical-numb.htm   (850 words)

 Birth of Great Bulgaria, Khan Kubrat
651 AD After Kubrat's death, the State is divided between his five sons; the youngest, khan Asparukh establishes the new Bulgarian capital in the South of the delta of Danube (Ongula); khan Kotragh, the second son, moves to the North-East and sets up the Volga Bulgaria (capital Bulgar, nowadays Kazan in Tatarstan, Russia).
The Bulgarians of Asparukh and Kuber would unify their forces after 809 A.D. when khan Krum integrated the town of Serdika into Bulgarian state thus opening the way between two Bulgarian groups.
Asparukh’s brother Kuber, who initially settled with his people in Panonia, left there around 685 due to a disagreement with the Avar khan, moved east and settled in the Bitola country (Macedonia), for which reason Byzantine chroniclers called his settlement 'Bulgaria' too. /nbulgaria/bulgaria/kubrat.htm   (2948 words)

 The Slavs and Their Neighbors
When, after participating in earlier invasions of the Eastern Empire by the Avars, as had the Slavs, they definitely crossed the Danube under their Khan or Khagan, Asparukh, in 679, a Bulgar state was established in northern Thrace in the region of present-day Bulgaria.
In spite of a treaty which Byzantium concluded with Bulgaria eleven years later, and which established a new boundary line north of Adrianople, there was a whole series of Greek-Bulgar wars in the course of the eighth century.
Emperor Justinian II, after defeating Bulgars and Slavs in 690, had to ask for their assistance in order to recover his throne from a rival, and in reward he granted to Asparukh’s successor, Tervel, the title of Caesar when he received him in the capital in 705. /wooton/34/halecki/2.htm   (4330 words)

Asparukh realized that as the new state was an alliance of tribes, it could not be established in one fell swoop but would have to be built over the course of several generations.
Asparukh was a daring leader who embodied the skills of politician and statesman, diplomat and warrior.
And thus Asparukh founded a state of Slavs and Bulgars, binding his tribe with the tribal alliance of the seven Slavic tribes and the Severians. /wiki/Batbayan   (819 words)

 Bulgarian history on stamps - khan Asparukh
In 680 khan Asparukh at the head of a significant part of the Bulgarian army crossed the Danube and passed over the whole Moesia.
The next year khan Asparukh concluded with the seven Slav tribes living in Moesia treaty under which the Slavs recognized their dependence on the Bulgarian state and committed itself to defend it against attacks by any enemy.
Khan Asparukh (681-701) succeeded in stopping Khazars' offensive but kept only a small part of the Old Great Bulgaria between the rivers Dnepr and Danube- land infertile and marshy, short of natural shelters. /history/asparukh.htm   (316 words) - History of Bulgaria, Khan Asparukh
However, khan Asparukh was awake to his being unable to ensure a complete life for his state and for the people dwelling in the plains, the only surviving piece of Old Bulgaria- land infertile and marshy, short of natural shelters, ore deposits, and forests.
In 680 AD khan Asparukh transferred a significant part of the Bulgarian army and population to the south of the Danube delta and took up the lands of present-day Dobrudja.
The structure of the Bulgarian state was changed to comply with the treaty between khan Asparukh and the Slav princes in Moesia. /history/bulgaria/aspar.html   (793 words)

 Tervel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Not only did he consolidate the Bulgarian settlements in area bordering modern Bulgaria and Romania, but developments of the neighboring Byzantine empire also expanded his domain southwards through favorable treaties and ensured him the upper hand in diplomatic relations between the two states.
Khan Tervel succeeded in either 701 or 702 after his father Asparukh presumably killed in a battle against the Khazars.

 681 A.D.: The Glory of Khan (1984)
This is doubtful because Asparukh must have led over 100,000 Bulgarians, and because the Bulgarian army was a formidable military force that the disunited Slavs could not have opposed.
The shorter version of the film cannot convey the sweep of the original six hour epic, which deals at length with each of the three major episodes in the story of the founding of the Bulgarian state: the fall of Great Bulgaria, Asparukh's trek west, and the founding of the new state.
Similarly, much of character development is completely left out, and we never understand why Asparukh allows Pagane to be sacrificed to Tangra, or why he submits to the decisions of the Council for an entire year before crossing the Danube. /film/reviews/digit/681-ad-the-glory-of-khan.html   (407 words)

The wars had started in Khan Asparukh's time and would continue almost throughout the medieval period in Bulgaria.
Khan Kardam took the helm in the midst of this chaos and from 777 to 803, he fought to defend his throne, either striving to preserve the internal peace or waging wars with Byzantium.
He sought to continue the state's expansion, started under Asparukh, to the south and southwest. /empir_bf/Stanislav/rulers/kardam.html   (363 words)

Out of the turmoil Asparukh (apparently the brother of the Khagan) emerged as the most prominent figure leading his Bulgars out of the federation south across the Danube to establish his state of Bulgaria there.

First, the Kotrags left to the east then rebel (Kubar) tribes seceded in Pannonia, while other Bulgars in that region sought refuge with the Lombards. /lessons/Onogur   (318 words)
