The eastern wing of the Roman Empire, divided into two after the Peoples Migration, the Turkish communities in Eastern Europe and the Balkansa re already in progress. Starting from the North of the Black Sea, these Turkısh tribes, which were basen on the Danube boundaries, pushed the tribes in front of them to the West and the first task was to send the envoys to the Eastern Roman Empire and demand land for settlement. As a matter of fact, they said tahat they didnt receive a positive response to their demands, their population was quite crowded and they could wage war against Eastern Rome. Various Turkish tribes such as Avars, Bulgarians, Cumans, Kipchaks and Pechenegs continued and continued. The Eastern Roman Empire was threatened by the Bulgarians, a much longer-standing enemy after the European Huns and the Avars in the Balkans. Although the Eastern Roman Empire tried to eliminate the danger of Bulgarians by displaying friendly and sometimes hostile attitudes, it didnt succeed for a long time. However, as a result of Bulgarians adoption of Slavic culture and therefore Christianity, the Eastern Roman Empire was able to easily dominate the Bulgarians.
