Mendirman Jaloliddin

A new historical Uzbek-Turkish joint TV series “Mendirman Jaloliddin” on the life of legendary commander Jalal al-Din Khwarazm shah will premier in Uzbekistan Sunday, an official announced. Dear Friends, I am pleased to announce that on February 14 at 20:30 the Milliy TV channel will start showing the historical series “Mendirman Jaloliddin,” Saida Mirziyoyeva, deputy chairperson of the board of trustees of the Public Foundation for Support and Development of National Mass Media in Uzbekistan, said Saturday on Twitter. The producer of the series is well-known Turkish director Mehmet Bozdağ, the creator of the Turkish famous series Resurrection Ertuğrul. The film is based on Jalal al-Din Khwarazm shah’s life and his long struggle against Mongolian invaders.

Jalal al-Din Khwarazm shah, the ruler of the Khwarazmian Empire, initiated a tragic but united struggle against the Mongol invasion. After unsuccessful attempts by the Khwarazm shahs to stop the Mongol invasion that began in the Central Asian steppes, Jalal al-Din, the last ruler of the empire, put dynastic fights between Seljuks and Khwarazmians aside, and tried to establish a united front to stop the Mongols.
