Alp Arslan was the second Sultan of the Seljuk Empire and great-grandson of Seljuk, the eponymous founder of the dynasty.

His full name was “Diya ad-Dunya wa ad-Din Adud ad-Dawlah Abu Shuja’ Muhammad Alp Arslan ibn Dawudand”. But for his military prowess and fighting skills, he obtained the name Alp Arslan, which means “Heroic Lion” in Turkish.

Alp Arslan was trained in sword fighting, riding, and marksmanship from a very young age and as a young man proved his abilities in the battle of Dandanaqan commanding his soldiers.

He set his eyes on the Eastern Anatolian regions. He went on a series of conquest accompanied by his son Malik Shah and won every battle with ease. His conquest earned him another title, “The father of conquests” by the Abbasid Caliph.

Alp Arslan then started another expedition towards Georgia. He swiftly won every battle he was in and quickly brought peace and stability to the bordering regions.

He made his way to the Holy Lands of Jerusalem, Medina, and Mecca bringing peace and prosperity to the regions, and kept making his way to Egypt.

Alp Arslan opened the gates of Anatolia to Turks in 1071 by defeating the Byzantine army at Malazgirt. This battle proved finally that the Turks could not be driven out of Anatolia.
