    Posted: 15-Jun-2009 at 19:00
the core of the Khazar empire was North of the Caucasus like Itil and Sarkel. and after the Arab Conquests the Caucasus was the frontier bewteen the Khazars and the Caliphate, so i think it's unlikely that Khazars controlled territory south of the Caucasus. besides there were also independent Caucasian states at that time.

my comment has nothing to do with Azerbaijan, i'm fully aware Azerbaijan has territory north of the Caucasus.

Depends how you look at it, also I heard the Mountain Jews may be related to Khazars, haven't really studied it though so not sure at all.

So basically, if not for Khazars, Azerbaijan Republic probaly would still be called Caucasian Albania with a Christian religion and a ethniticy related to Northern Caucasus.

So yes, Khazars have probaly played the biggest role in Turkic formation of Azerbaijan Republic.

This is true but the point here is that they are the most influential Turkic presence in Azerbaijan before Oguz's.
 
Before Khazars there was even Huns, but i doubt any serious settlements.
 
The thing is that the Turkic history of Azerbaijan Republic begins right after destruction of Caucasian Albania kingdom, a native Caucasian kingdom (Christian too) wich resised in modern day Azerbaijan. And it was Khazars whom destroyed Alban kingdom, in 7th century.

Northern regions of Azerbaijan are North of Caucasus but yes, Khazars were even in Southern Caucasus.
 
At their height, the Khazar khaganate and its tributaries controlled much of what is today southern Russia, western Kazakhstan, eastern Ukraine, Azerbaijan, large portions of the Northern Caucasus ( Circassia, Dagestan, Chechnya), parts of Georgia and the Crimea.

Emil, Khazars were a branch of GokTurks, HungryWolf, Khazars presence is the oldest of Turks in Azerbaycan.

Becuase Azerbaijan were part of Khazar khaganate and Khazars lived here.and Khazars what the biggest of them

Its the right of Azerbaijan to claim Khazars then any other nation.
They were ancestors of khazars and you said that khazars were biggest of "them" who lived in Azerbaijan.
You are wrong.

Look my brother before the khazars were Gokturk Empire.
It was first state in which name "turk" word included.
Gokturks empire layed from East Asia to Caucasus and the people of gokturks have their own writing script it called "ORHON SCRIPT".
This writing script was also found in Azerbaijan on stones and it dated 2400 years ago.
It means that Gokturks were living in Azerbaijan and first orhon script were made in our country.
It was first turkic state which had in its territories also Azerbaijan.

No, i think u don't get it. There were other Turkic groups before Oghuzs in Azerbaijan, and Khazars what the biggest of them. Its the right of Azerbaijan to claim Khazars then any other nation.

OK u are right i understand what you are saying.
Caucasian avars and Asian avars are different.
But my origin is completely oghuz turks who lived more than 1000 years in Azerbaijan like other azerbaijanians. But i guess you have any problems?

Sorry but are u sure that u from Azerbaijan? Cause someone from Azerbaijan would know very well that Caucasian Avars of Dagestan and Azerbaijan are not related at all to the Eurasian Avars that don't exist at all.

U can be from Azerbaijan, but maybe only your origin are from there, i don't know.
 
Caucasian Avars have nothing to do with Eurasian Avars, whom don't even exist any longer.  They are native North East Caucasians.

U are Azerbaijanian?

Its hard to judge from your posts.
 
About Oghuzs, its arguable. In South there are more Oghuz influence, in North it becomes lesser.
