An old legend tells that a 6th century Persian king, named Sasanid Shah, Husraw I Anuširvan (531–579), always placed three seats of gold around his own throne. When asked who those seats were reserved for, he said that they were for the three other great rulers of the Old World: the King of China, the King of Byzantium, and the King of the Khazars, so that should these rulers come, they would sit on these seats.
Today, people know little about the Khazars, but you can help us shed light on these mysterious people.
Donors to the Khazar DNA Project will receive various benefits according to the amount. Gifts include:
- Access to this blog where I provide updates on this study
- The ability to submit their own DNA for analysis (assuming your autosomal DNA has been sequenced by another company such as FamilyTreeDNA or 23andme) to determine whether you are a descendant of the Khazars or their aristocracy
- A copy of Dictionary of the Khazars by Milorad Pavić
- DNA test kit from FamilyTreeDNA.
- And more…

I look forward to you joining my study.
