Overview[]

Great Seljuqs[]

The Seljuk Sultanate was the first empire built by a Turkish nomadic tribe from Central Asia. In 1040, the Seljuks, who belonged to the Oghuz Turks, decisively defeated the Ghaznavid Sultan Mas˓ud under the leadership of two brothers, Tughril Beg and Chagri Beg. They went on to establish an empire in Iran that soon extended to Mesopotamia, where Tughril captured Baghdad in 1055 and assumed the titles of sultan and shahanshah (shah of shahs). His nephew and successor, Alp Arslan (1063–1072), defeated and captured the Byzantine emperor in the battle of Manzikert (Malazgird) and opened Anatolia to Turkish migration. His son, Malekshah (1072–1092), completed the conquest of Syria in 1084. The empire thus extended from the Oxus to the Mediterranean. It is known as the empire of the Great Seljuks, and remained unified for some half a century.

Nizam al-Mulk[]

Nizam al-Mulk was a Persian vizier of the Turkish Seljuq sultans, best remembered for his large treatise on kingship, Seyasat-nameh (The Book of Government; or, Rules for Kings).II.

Dawn of Man[]

"Hail Nizam al-Mulk, great Vizier to the Sultans Alp-Arslan and Malik-Shah. The charge of Vizier is a toilsome one, but among the Viziers of the Great Seljuq Empire you were exemplary. With great wisdom and greater cunning, you guided the Turkic sultans to transform their empire into a prospering and educated beacon of Persian civilization. Though your assassination would mark the decline of the empire you had built, the legacy of your instructive works stand as testimony to the unmatched greatness of your Vizierate.

An empire once more requires the guiding hand of he who built it, O' great and noble Nizam al-Mulk. Can you take upon yourself the Vizierate once again? Can you instil enlightenment and wisdom in whosoever you might serve? Can you help build a civilization that will stand the test of time?"

Introduction: "Greetings. I am Nizam al-Mulk, Vizier to the Great Sultan of the Seljuq Empire. You'll be speaking with me in lieu of His Sultanate Majesty."

Defeat: "I knew this day would come. Make it quick."
