Description
The intent of this class is to provide a basic level of information for a person interested in understanding and developing a Khazar persona. It will cover a little history, clothing and lifestyle. It is taught as an introduction and will also provide source and reference material for interested parties. The Khazars rose to power in the 6th CE and remained a force until the 12thCE. At the height of their power, 48 nation states paid tribute to the Khazars including Byzantines, Vikings, Magyars and Turks. Khazars were on the throne of Byzantium on two occasions. A great deal of controversy surrounds the Khazars due to the 8th CE conversion of nobility to Judaism and the forms of government, law and warfare practiced.
