Wikipedia, July 21, 2014 (Khan Tervel (Bulgarian: Тервел) also called Tarvel, or Terval, or Terbelis in some Byzantine sources. Born 675; died 721; Emperor of the Bulgarians at the beginning of the 8th century (700-721). In 705 Emperor Justinian II named him Caesar, the first foreigner to receive this title. He was probably a Christian like his grandfather Khan Kubrat. After the Bulgarian army crushed the Arabs during the Siege of Constantinople (718) Tervel was called by contemporaries the Saviour of Europe.
