Aszparuh

Synopsis: The 7th century is the time of the Great Migration of the Peoples. Under the pressure of the invaders the proto-Bulgarian tribes of Khan Kubrat are forced to split in four parts in the hope that one would survive. For twenty long years Kubrat's youngest son Khan Asparoukh led his people across many foreign lands to find eventually a new homeland on the Balkan Peninsula and this time forever. The story is told by Byzantine Velisarius, a hostage with the Bulgarian who witnesses the whole of their difficult march. He sees the suffering of the people whom he already feels close to his heart and the personal drama of their Khan Asparoukh. In 681, in alliance with the local Slav tribes, the proto-Bulgarian deal a decisive blow on numerous Byzantine army, thus 13 centuries ago the foundations of the Bulgarian state and nation were laid down.

Greetings, Pagane!

Kanasubigi is calling for you!

If it's for foretelling,

it's not for you, daughter!

You're not the same since

you prophesied to the late khan.

My daughter has weakened, foreigner.

And she's like a father to us.

My husband died when

he was still young.

I'm strong, mother!

Don't worry, I won't prophesy!

Yuvigi!

Pagane!

I wish the kanasubigi

a long and happy reign!

What are you doing?

You've weakened!

The road is hard, yuvigi,

for everyone.

I had no right to see you. The

mourning for my father ended today.

Khan Kubrat's soul

has reached Tangra!

What is it?

Tell me, Pagane!

Aren't you glad to see me?

- I'm glad to see you, yuvigi!

I'll send kavhan Avitohol to ask you

from your mother tomorrow!

You're a khan now!

The notables won't accept me.

No one has the right

to break our laws.

Don't ask the same

from them!

The warrior Isbul, your father,

has died in battle!

You're nobler than the daughters

of any living notable!

Now go home!

Tomorrow the Council will

choose you for my wife!

Belisarius!

Tell the first boils

to gather before sunrise!

Yuvigi ordered his first boils to gather

for a Council before sunrise tomorrow!

Yuvigi, I found someone eavesdropping

behind your tent last night.

I followed him.

He entered at the kolober's tent.

Then the other nobles came.

My uncle?

- He as well.

I called you, great boils,

to decide, and you, boils, to hear!

Tangra just told me

what you're calling us for!

You want...

- You know it not from Tangra,

but from the chigot that

was spying on me last night!

So?

We'll only repeat your father's

last will. The law is against

your marriage with Pagane.

That was not my father's will, uncle!

He said the Council should decide!

And we have decided!

- When did you decide?!

The Council has just begun!

You speak!

Or you, uncle!

Which law forbids me from taking

the tribe's most eminent woman?

Her mind and skills will be

of great use for my power!

And for all the people!

- You've said the truth, yuvigi!

Pagane is most eminent!

She is perfect!

Perfection incarnated

in a woman's flesh.

Have you forgotten, yuvigi, what

this means by the oldest Bulgar laws?

If we find someone with perfect skills,

we have no right to hold him

in our imperfect world!

We're obliged to send him to Tangra,

so he may serve Him from nearby!

Otherwise He will punish us!

No woman has ever

went to Tangra by this law!

Until today! So far only perfect

men were born among the Bulgars!

Several talents at once,

that's very rare!

Now the great Tangra awaits Pagane!

- Pagane is my wife!

The khan's word is law!

I've said!

The Council is over!

It's a sin to take a woman, whose

fate belongs to Tangra, yuvigi!

Why are you against Pagane, uncle?

She was born for Tangra!

Everyone knew it,

only you couldn't see!

Don't anger Tangra, yuvigi!

Troubles will fall on our people!

The most eminent woman of the tribe

should be sent to Tangra today!

Such is the law!

Whoever upholds the law,
