Osman I Summary (2762 words)
Osman I (1258–1326) (Ottoman: عثمان بن أرطغل) was born in 1258 and inherited the title bey (chief) from his father, Ertuğrul, as the ruler of the village of Söğüt in 1281.

Osman’s uncle, the aged Dundar, who had marched with Ertoghrul from the Euphrates, seventy years before, was still alive, when Osman, in 1299, summoned a council of his principal followers, and announced to them his intention to attack the lord of the important Greek fortress of Keaprihissar.
