Being responsible for the well-being of the entire Ottoman Empire isn’t a child’s play as we follow the life of Osman Gazi (Osman I). The show follows the internal and external struggles which Osman encounters as he tries to establish and control his nation. Along the way, he faces various obstacles blocking his way in the form of the Byzantium and the Mongols of the Ilkhanate. And we witness his strive to secure independence from the Sultanate of Rum to establish a sovereign state. This state would later stand up to the Byzantine and Mongol Empires thus raising the Turks in comparison to their rivals.
After 10-15 years of the Berke-Hulagu war, Ertugrul Gazi leaves his brother, Dündar Bey, in charge of his tribe. But Dündar Bey soon falls into a trap set by Selçuk Sançak Bey, Alişar, and princess of Kulucahisar, Sofia who seeks to kill all the Turks. Osman sees through this trap and warns him about them but he refuses to listen. As more tension builds against the Kayı, Komutan Balgay is sent to stop them. Dündar, bows down to the Mongols becoming the Sançak Bey while Alişar blames Osman for his son’s death. Soon after, Dündar is shown the truth as Alişar is beheaded by Osman. And Osman is married to his love, Bala. Later, Balgay is presumably killed by Osman while Kayi conquers Kulucahisar during which Sofia dies.
As Ertugrul returns back to the tribe, Nikola is sent to be the new Tekfur of İnegöl. Meanwhile, Yavlak Arslan sees Osman as an obstacle as he seeks to create his own state. But later the two unite to face a new threat, Han of the İlhanlı. They are allies to Nikola against the Turks of Anatolia. Bala too faces Targun as Nikola’s spy allies with Osman to save her father, İnal Bey. Osman, after his father’s death, is elected as the new Bey.
