In the chaos that after the Ankara War, three separate events that happened under the leadership of Borkluje Mustafa in Aydınili, Torlak Kemal in Saruhanili, and Sheikh Badraddin in Rumeli, in the Ottoman geography where civil war was taking place between the princes, both in the Ottoman historical literature and in other historical works that written based on it, it has been dealt with in very different ways. While some Ottoman historiographers reflect these three events as the only rebellion that happened simultaneously and under the leadership and coordination of Sheikh Badraddin, other writers reflect them as three separate events that happened diachronically. When the contemporary or recent sources of the events are carefully examined, the impression arises that it is possible too to talk about three separate events that developed independently from each other and whose leaders and their social bases and aims were different from each other. The contradictory statements of the sources are a matter of questioning in itself, of course, but more importantly, as stated above, some sources reflecting the three events as a simultaneous and coordinated event under the leadership of Sheikh Badraddin also determined the approaches of later historians, and the said understanding or detection was not questioned and continued in the early years of the Republic. This attitude has the potential to transform historical events into fictional myths and their leaders into mythical figures. In this study, the sources will be meticulously examined, and the events and their heroes will be purified from fairy-tale elements, and whatever has happened in history will be tried to be revealed.
