Part-3: About the name "BASIL" meaning "king"

Part-3: About the Byzantium king name "BASIL"

Before discussing the name "BASIL", as it appears in the name of King
BASIL I (867-886), I like to bring to the attention of the reader the
following important definition which started from the time of
Constantin the Great and was valid for all Byzantine. kings.

Philip Sherrard writes: [25]

"The theory put forward by Eusebius, Bishop of Caesariea and one of
Constantine's closest ecclesiastical advisors, was so suited to the
needs of State and society that it was to endure for more than a
millennium, with only minor changes, as the political philisophy of
the Byzantine state.

With astute respect for prevailing traditions, Eusebius wove atrands
taken from Hellenism and Roman practice into a Christian framework.
>From Hellenism came the concept of the emperor as father, benefactor
and savior of his people. From late pagan Rome, where the emperors
had ruled as gods, came the exalted status of the ruler, who
buttressed his power by adopting a favorite pagan divinity. Now the
Christian emperor could claim the Christian God as his source of
strength. Such a bond had been forged in Constantine's submission to
the Cross on the eve of his victory at the Milvian Bridge, a triumph
that made manifest - so the theory went the designation of Constantine
(and his successors on the throne) as the elect of God. Eusebius
wrote: "Thus the God of all . . . . appointed Constantine . . . . to
be prince and sovereign, so that while others have been raised to this
distinction by the election of their fellow men, he is the only one to
whose elevation no mortal man may boast of having contributed." As
God's chosen instrument, the emperor was to rule on earth as God's
vice-regent and representative. And, since earth was a counterpart of
Heaven, the emperor was to play on earth a role analogus to that of
God in Heaven. Just as there was one all-powerful ruler in Heaven, so
on earth there would be but one absolute monarch-the ruler of the
Roman Empire."

Clearly, this is an agreement between the newly established Christian
Church and the Byzantium (Beyistanum) state regarding the tenets of
the new religion and the kings in that new system. Evidently, the new
religious and administrative system was in every sence a restructuring
of the ancient Turanian Sky-God Oguz religion, so-called "paganism."
It is known that in that very ancient system, kings of a country
assumed themselves as the representatives of Sky-God on earth.
This we have shown to be the case in many king titles that I
analysed. Despite the new camouflage, system was the ancient Tur/Turk
system as clearly ecplained by the citing above. Because of this
definition which lasted a thousand years or more, the Byzantium and
other European kings and the Popes still considered themselves as
God's representative on earth. But they composed the title concept in
Turkish first and then anagrammatized it into Greek or Latin or other

A. About the King BASIL I (867-886)

The title BASIL was used by many Byzantium kings and others. One such
king was BASIL I The Magnificent (867- 886). Philip Sherrard writes
about him the following: [26]

"Basil I, who was born in the Ninth Century on a barren, rocky farm
near Adrianople, in the imperial district of Macedonia. Basil spent
his childhood in Bulgarian captivity, then as a young man ventured to
Constantinople, where by prodigious feats of valor on hunting field,
in banquet hall and in parlor (plus occasional discreet sallies in
assassination) he reached the throne - and, suprisingly, turned out to
be a wonderfully wise and able monarch."

The name "BASIL" is said to be from Greek "BASILEUS" meaning "king".
[27] Now let us examine this name Basil.

The name BASIL, when rearranged as "BAS-IL" or in the form of
"IL-BAS", is the Turkish phrase "IL BASI" ("ülke basi") whre S is
Turkish "Sh" sound, meaning "Head of the country" which is the "king"
by definition. Thus, we have an exact correspondence in Turkish.
Hence, this supposedly "Greek" name is not Greek at all but rather a
restructured and disguised Turkish expression in origin. In making the
Turkish source text into this "Greek" name, the Turkish letter "Sh"
has been converted to "S" which is a method frequently used by those
who manufactured words from Turkish for Greek and other Indo-European

Additionally, the name BASIL in the form of "BAS-IL" is an anagram of
the Turkish expression "BAS-YEL", where S = Sh, meaning "The Head
Wind" (the top wind such as a storm, hurricane, tornado, etc.) which
indirectly refers to this Greek king's wind-god based religion. The
ancient Greeks were also "WIND-GOD believers like the Semitics. This
is also evident in the Greek version of the name "BASILEUS".

When the name "BASILEUS" is rearranged as "IL-BASSE-U", where SS=Sh,
it is the anagram of Turkish expression "IL BAShI O" meaning "He is
the head of the country" which of course by definition means "king".
Additionally, it is the Turkish expression "YEL BASHI O" meaning "he
is head of winds" or "he is the king of winds" or the Wind-God. This
definition of his title indicates that he is a "wind believer" in his
newly established religion. But this meaning is evident only in
Turkish. Hence, this Byzantium (Beyistanum) king's title was
structured in Turkish first and then restructured into Greek contrary
to all camouflage.

B. About the name "HELLAS"

Of importance to this Basil discussion is the fact that Greeks call
themselves HELLAS. The H in HELLAS is really a double identity Greek
letter. It can be written with symbol H or symbol I as desired. In
this case, the H is really an I (or Y). Knowing this, let us examine

a) The name HELLAS, with H = I, when rearranged as "IEL-SAL" is an
anagram of Turkish phrase "YEL-SEL" meaning "wind and flood" referring
to a storm where extreme wind, rain and floding takes place. This is
the doing of the ancient "wind (storm) god". It is not a coincidence
that the Greek god ZEUS is always represented as an old man appearing
among the stormy clouds where he throws his javelin of lightinings to
those whom he does not like. This indicates the storm and wind nature
of this ancient Greek deity and verifies our point of view that Greeks
were wind believing peoples.

In this context, their kings assuming a "wind" related personification
in their titles is not unusual. But what is unusual is that they did
this first in Turkish and then disguised it into Greek, Probably,
that is why, the term "Greek", as a language, has also a meaning as:
"unintelligible" or "broken up" which is expressed with the word
"kirik" (girik) in Turkish meaning "broken". Similarity of the word
"Greek" and Turkish "girik" is striking and is not due to coincidence.
This is an indication that "Greek" was manufactured from Turkish by
"breaking" Turkish words and phrases into "Greek'.

b) The name HELLAS, as it is written, is an anagram of Turkish phrase
"ELLI AS" or "AS ELLI" (essiz yelli) meaning "peerless wind" referring
to a storm having no other kind like it. From the point of view of
strength that such a nature event represents, a king or any king would
have such attribution in his title. Thus some Greek kings had such
names in their title. But they did it only in Turkish.

c) The name HELLAS, as it is written, is an anagram of Turkish phrase
Turkish phrase "ELLIAZ" or "YELLIYIZ" meaning "We are from Wind" or
"we are wind believers".

>From all above analysis it is clear that the name "BASIL' is a
restructured and disguised Turkish expression in origin.

In the same reference, i.e., "BYZANTIUM" by Philip Sherrard, King
Basil is pictured as a young boy on the loving arms of the Bulgarian
King Omurtag described in a picture essay as follows: [28]

"Young Basil and his family, taken captive by invading Bulgarians
along with thousands of other Macedonians, were released some years
later by the Bulgarian King Omurtag. As the prisoners marched out of
captivity on their way back to their farms, Omurtag noticed the boy
"smiling graciously and romping around" and reached out to grab him.
Basil unafraid, jumped up on the King's lap. While a nearby official
protested, Omurtag kissed Basil and gave him a big apple- which was
interpreted as yet another symbol of future empire." [This episode is
pictured in this reference source in a picture essay attributed to a
Byzantine official of the 11th century.]

This reference citation points out that there were Bulgar Turks in
Bulgaria during the reign of Basil I (9th century). It also shows
clearly that the Bulgarian King OMURTAG was a loving and caring king
and that he released prisoners from captivity and that he was not a
"barbarian" as the Greeks would like us to believe.


Another Byzantine king with the title "BASIL" was the king BASIL II
BULGAROCTONUS. He is described as follows:

"BASIL II BULGAROCTONUS (The Bulgar-slayer, 976-1025), the austere
soldier and statesman who, as his name indicates, triumphed over the
Bulgars and reduced practically the whole Balkan peninsula to imperial
rule." [29]

This citation, on the other hand, clearly shows how the Greek behaves
towards the Turk when they overcome the Turks. They annihilate those
who oppose, and assimilate those who accept their rule by changing
their names, religion, language and ethnic identity. This is how they
changed the whole Turkish Bulgar peoples' identity into being "Slavs"
and Christians. It is clear that a lot of lies have been pumped into
"history" books. Evidently religions have been used as deadly tools
in the hands of some rulers. It is used not only in assimilating the
conquered people but also obliterating their roots. This has been
well demonstrated by the Roman and Byzantine rulers.

The name BULGAROCTONUS, when decrypted letter-by-letter as
"BULGAR-COSONTU", where C=K, and read phonetically as in Turkish, is a
distorted and disguised form of Turkish expression "BULGAR KASANTU"
(Bulgar kesendi) meaning "he is Bulgar-slayer", "he is Bulgar-cutter".
This meaning is exacly the same as the meaning attributed to his
so-called "Greek" title BULGAROCTONUS. The correspondence is absolute
and indisputable proving that the Greeks manufactured most words and
names of the Greek language from Turkish contrary to endless lies and
denials. It is interesting to note that this Byzantine king must have
been so proud of his killing of Bulgar Turks that he put it into his title.

As can be seen, my rearranging (decyphering) the given Greek titles in
order to arrive at the true etymology introduces no artificiality into
my deciphering as some uninitiated readers might think. On my part, in
order to understand the true source of the Greek titles or words, they
need to be rearranged because I have discovered that the Greeks
originally restructured these names or words from Turkish words or
expressions - as I have demonstrated here and in my previous writings.
It proves that anagrammatization of Turkish language into artificially
manufactured Indo-European and Semitic languages was the rule of the
day rather than the exception. Thus, in this context, the title of
this Greek king, like the other ones, is another "stolen and repainted
car" case.

This title of a Byzantium king, like the others, again proves that the
ancient Greek king titles were initially composed from Turkish words
and expressions, then restructured and disguised into the language
called "Greek". This is contrary to the endless disinformation
written for mass consumption by the western "historians" and
"linguists" who either knowingly or not knowingly, labelled a stolen
and encrypted Turkish language as a language of Greeks. The western
world, with its so-called "Greek heritage", used the same technique
(i.e., altering and disguising Turkish expressions) in developing
other so-called Indo-European languages.

Because of the hostile behaviour of the Greek kings against the
Tur/Turk peoples, mostly due to their religious teachings, the Bulgar
Turks were subjected to genocide, Christianization and deliberate
assimilation. It is no wonder that history has been turned upside down
with endless distortions and disinformation by those who knew what
they had usurped from the Turks. The ancient Tur/Turk peoples who
were at the top before are now at the bottom while those who were at
the bottom are now at the top. The people who were noble and full of
justice and humanity were labelled as "barbarians" while the actual
primitive ones were called the "civilised" ones.

The ancient Turkish names Thracia and Balkan indicate that these areas
were Turkish homelands since very ancient times. Bulgars were on
group of the Turkish people who came to Thracia (present Bulgaria),
knowing that these lands were their "ancestor homeland", and
established a long lasting Turkish state for themselves. Evidently,
this Greek king BASIL II BULGAROCTONUS (The Bulgar-slayer) was such an
intense Turk hater that he had to incorporate that strong negative
feeling into his kingship title.

This essay shows conclusively that the names of these two Greek
Byzantium kings were manufactured from Turkish contrary to the
previous understanding that they were Greek in origin.
