He is a soldier who dedicated his life to establishing an Islamic state. Ottomon empire that the dynasty established is derived from the Arabic form ( Uthmān ) of his name.


Osman’s role is very brave, merciful, heroic. Although, at first, Osman is regarded to be pretty short-tempered. In the contrast, historically, Osman was described to be a really patient and wise ruler whom people respected considerably. His character in the television series is like that too, but not to that extent. Osman is certainly skilled much like his father Ertugrul and becomes exceptionally eminent. He is much respected by people, not only for his victories on the battlefield, however for his high-quality and dignified characteristics. In the Turkish TV series, this is a lot the same, however, he’s less experienced at this now, and is more intolerant.
