Part-5: About the names ROMANUS, DIOGENES, . . . .
Part- 5. About the Byzantine king names ROMANUS,
NICEPHORUS, CONSTANS and POGONATUS
By POLAT KAYA
In this part we will talk about the makeup of these king titles. We
noted in Part-3 that an agreement betwen Christian church and the
Byzantine state was signed so that the the Byzantium kings would carry
on with their "godship" as they did during their "pagan" days. Since
this agreement also applies to those Byzantium kings who have these
names in their titles, it is important to refresh the memory once
again. The excerpt from the reference were as follows:
Philip Sherrard writes: 
"The theory put forward by Eusebius, Bishop of Caesariea and one of
Constantine's closest ecclesiastical advisors, was so suited to the
needs of State and society that it was to endure for more than a
millennium, with only minor changes, as the political philisophy of
the Byzantine state.
With astute respect for prevailing traditions, Eusebius wove strands
taken from Hellenism and Roman practice into a Christian framework.
>From Hellenism came the concept of the emperor as father, benefactor
and savior of his people. From late pagan Rome, where the emperors
had ruled as gods, came the exalted status of the ruler, who
buttressed his power by adopting a favorite pagan divinity. Now the
Christian emperor could claim the Christian God as his source of
strength. Such a bond had been forged in Constantine's submission to
the Cross on the eve of his victory at the Milvian Bridge, a triumph
that made manifest - so the theory went the designation of Constantine
(and his successors on the throne) as the elect of God. Eusebius
wrote: "Thus the God of all . . . . appointed Constantine . . . . to
be prince and sovereign, so that while others have been raised to this
distinction by the election of their fellow men, he is the only one to
whose elevation no mortal man may boast of having contributed." As
God's chosen instrument, the emperor was to rule on earth as God's
vice-regent and representative. And, since earth was a counterpart of
Heaven, the emperor was to play on earth a role analogus to that of
God in Heaven. Just as there was one all-powerful ruler in Heaven, so
on earth there would be but one absolute monarch-the ruler of the
The above citing has misleading statements in it. When it says "From
Hellenism came the concept of the emperor as father, benefactor and
savior of his people", this is false because these notions were
already in existence from the much more ancient Turanian (Masarian /
Egyptian) civilization. The Greeks got mostly everything from the much
earlier Tur/Turk native civilzation. Also, when the citing says "From
late pagan Rome, where the emperors had ruled as gods, came the
exalted status of the ruler, who buttressed his power by adopting a
favorite pagan divinity", this too is false because the origin of
these notions is also from the much earlier Turanian Oguz civilization
which is labelled PAGAN as put down.
The above citing, however, implies that the Roman emperors were pagan
since the late Rome times. Paganism was present with the native
peoples of not only the city of Rome, but also all of Europe since
ancient times. That is, the native peoples were all following the
ancient Turanian Sky-God OGUZ religion. The term "paganism" must have
been coined after the Judeo-Christianity religions were invented. In
order to be able to spread these new religions among the so-called
"pagan" natives, the term "pagan" was used to misrepresent or demonize
(put down) the ancient Tur/Turk Oguz religion by portraying it as
primitive "idol worshipping" (e.g., portrayed as worshipping a beetle
or an ox or a ram, a tree, etc.), which it was not. As we have so
often explained, the Tur/Turk Oguz religion was a celestial Sky God
religion and was probably the first religion of mankind. Thus the
"paganism" culture did not come from "late pagan Rome", where the
emperors had ruled as gods, but came from the much ancient Turanian
Oguz religion and culture as it was the case in ancient Masar (Misir)
Hence the exalted status of the ruler did not come from Roman source,
but it actually came from Turanian Tur/Turk source, that is, the
so-called "pagan" Turanians. The "Pagan" divinity that a Byzantine
ruler would adopt for himself would be the Turkish Sun-God Oguz,
Moon-God Oguz, and of course the Sky-Father-God OGUZ. We will find
Turkish expressions describing them embedded in the names of these
Byzantium king titles analysed below.
With this understanding we can now continue with the analysis of the
The name ROMANUS is in the titles of the Byzantine rulers such as
ROMANUS I, II, III, and ROMANUS IV DIOGENES. When the name ROMANUS is
analyzed as given below and read phonetically as in Turkish, we get
the descriptive Turkish expressions regarding the king carrying this
title. The name ROMANUS, when separated as:
a) "RUM-ANOS", is the distorted form of Turkish expression
"RUM-HANUZ" meaning "we are Rum Lords" or "we are the Greek Lords" or
"we are the Gypsy Lords" which again is correct because Byzantine
kings were the RUM (Greek) people. Thus with this Turkish expression,
the king identifies himself as "RUM", i.e., "GREEK" or GYPSY.
b) "ROM-AN-US", is from Turkish expression "RUM-HAN-US" or "US
RUM-HAN" meaning "Wise Rum Lord", that is, "Wise Greek Lord" or "Wise
Gypsy Lord". This Turkish expression identifies the king as a wise
c) "MUR-AN-OS", is from Turkish expression "MOR HAN OS" (MOR HAN OGUZ)
meaning "Purple Lord Oguz" referring to the Sun-God Oguz of Turanian
Tur/Turk peoples. Here the king assumes the so-called pagan deity OGUZ
name as an ennobling and exalting title.
d) "MAN-R-OUS", is from Turkish expression "MEN ER OUS" (MEN ER OGUZ)
meaning "I am Man Oguz" referring to the Sky-God Oguz of Turanian
Tur/Turk peoples. By these last two Turkish expression the King is
elevated to the level of Sky-God and thus ennobled.
e) The name ROMANUS, by itself, is the Turkish expression "ROMANUZ"
meaning "we are Romans" which is also correct because the Byzantine
was the Eastern Roman empire. Thus the title identifies these kings
with the Romans. The suffix -US is the Turkish verbal suffix -UZ for
1st person plural of the verb "olmak" meaning "to be".
Thus with the word ROMANUS, which was composed in Turkish and was
disguised into Greek, those Byzantine kings who took this name as
their title, expressed information about themselves with the above
Turkish meanings embedded in the title. Such information does not
appear on the surface value of the Greek title. From all this it is
clear that not only was the source for such Greek names Turkish but
also the source of the culture was the very ancient Turkish culture -
contrary to all the disinformation that the world public has been
deceived by. The Judeo-Christian writers of the ancient world history
have obliterated the ancient Tur/Turk world so completely that it has
become extremely difficult to associate the ancient world with the
Tur/Turk peoples. Only the disguised Turkish words and phrases
restructured in their languages give away the presence of the ancient
Tur/Turk world. The validity of this evidence is non-debateable.
The name DIOGENES is another so-called "Greek" name used in the titles
of the Byzantium kings without telling the truth that it was another
stolen Turkish phrase, restructured and disguised into Greek in order
to distance the name from its Turkic origin of "GUNES IDI" meaning "it
was the Sun". I have given a detailed account of this name under the
title of "THE RIDDLE OF DIOGENES". The reader may find it in the
Polat_Kaya Library in Yahoo group at URL:
The name DIOGENES: when rearranged letter-by-letter as "ODI GENES" is
the rearranged form of Turkish expression "ADI-GÜNES" meaning "His
name is Sun", or alternatively "IDI GÜNES" meaning "He was the Sun" or
"O IDI GÜNES" meaning "he was the Sun". Thus in accordance with the
ancient Turanian religious and social tradition of taking the
Sun-God's name as a title, the Greek BYZANTIUM (BEYISTANUM) kings also
used this Turkish source as elevating titles for themselves. However
the original description of the title in Turkish was restructured and
disguised to make it look like a "Greek" name. The unsuspecting public
at large, while trying hard to earn a living for his family, would not
have the time or the interest or the knowledge to become suspicious
about the genuineness or authenticity of these "Greek" names.
Therefore the public accepted what they were presented with - as is
usually the case.
The name NICEPHORUS when rearranged letter-by-letter as "PIR-O-CUNESH"
is from Turkish "BIR O GUNES' meaning "only he is the Sun". Thus
Byzantine kings who used this title deified and ennobled themselves
with this Turkish expression embedded in the anagrammatized title.
There is the Byzantine king name NICEPHORUS III BOTANIATUS. When the
name BOTANIATUS is rearranged letter-by-letter as "BAUISTAN-OT" where
the multi-identity letter U is Y, the name becomes "BAYISTAN-OT" which
is the Turkish expression "BEYISTAN OT" (Beyistan Od) meaning "the
fire of Beyistan" or "the fire of "Byzantium". This is again a very
ennobling title designed in Turkish and converted into Greek.
This name also verifies my discovery that the name BYZANTIUM is a
restructured and disguised form of Turkish expression "BEYISTANUM" or
"BEYISTAN ÖYÜM" as I noted in Part-1 of this series. In other words,
the Turkish name BEYISTAN has been usurped and disguised into the name
D. CONSTANS II POGONATUS
This title contains two words. The first word "CONSTANS", when
rearranged letter-by-letter as "CON-STANS" is from Turkish expression
"GUN ISTANIZ" meaning: a) "We are the Sun God", and b) "We are the
Land of GUNISTAN" which verifies the fact that the name BYZANTIUM was
from Turkish expression "BEYISTANUM" or "BEYISTAN ÖYÜM". Similarly,
The Byzantine king CONSTANTINE also had a similar name based on
The second name POGONATUS in the title, when rearranged as
"POGON-AT-US", is the Turkish expression "PAGAN ATA US" meaning "Pagan
Father Wise". By this title, the king refers to himself as the wise
Father-god of the so-called "paganism", that is, the ancient Turanian
Sky-God Oguz religion.
Furthermore, when the name POGONATUS is rearranged as "OPO-GUNAST" and
read phonetically as in Turkish, it is the Turkish expression "APA
GUNESTU' meaning "Father is Sun". Hence the Greek king, as father or
the king of the country, likens himself to the Sun; but, curiously he
does it in Turkish rather than in Greek.
Additionally, when the name POGONATUS is rearranged as "TANPU-OGOS"
and we consider the fact that the ancient Greek alphabet letter "R"
was represented with the symbol "P" which constituted a source of
confusion and disguise, the name suddenly becomes "TANRU OGOS" which
is nothing but the Turkish expression "TANRU OGUZ" meaning "God Oguz".
Thus this Greek king is secretly deifying himself as the Turkish Sky
God Oguz (Gok Tanri Oguz) who was the God of the ancient Turanian
Sky-God OGUZ religion.
When the name POGONATUS is rearranged as "OGOS-TAPUN" and read
phonetically as in Turkish, it is from the Turkish expression "OGOZA
TAPAN" meaning "he who worships Oguz" or "he who worships that Eye"
referring to the Sun and the Moon. In other words, this king was
probably worshipping the ancient Turanian Sky-God OGUZ in his heart.
This brings to mind an appellation DANAIANS in Greek mythology used as
a name for ancient Greeks - which is most likely a distortion of the
Turkish expression DÖNEN meaning "one who changed his religion" or
"one who turned away from his religion".
Thus both names in the title of the Byzantium king CONSTANS II
POGONATUS are sourced from Turkish and the titling has been based on
ancient Tur/Turk culture. With all this analysis, we have shown that
the Turkish language has been indeed intentionally carried away as
source material for Byzantium King names as well as for the Greek
language. The usurped Turkish words and expressions have been
restructured, disguised and sold to the world as Greek without
referring to Turkish as the source. All of this amounts to what is
known as "identity theft". In other words, a very advanced
civilization and religion that belonged to the ancient Turanians were
taken over by non-Turanians, renamed and restructured, and then
presented to the world as their own while obliterating the original owners.
This is just like the Greeks using many prepared food dishes of
Turkish cuisine (e.g., dolma, Turkish kahve, helva, bal (mel), döner
(gyro), lokum, etc.) and then portraying them to the world as "Greek"
without giving the proper reference to its Turkish origin. Evidently,
they have gotten away with this kind of deceptive game for far too
long. The usurpation gets hardened by having some European
pseudo-authority wrongly certifies that the presented item is "Greek"
