Khazaria: a Turkic Judaic empire

A remarkable, but obscure (from my perspective) fact of history: The royalty and nobility of Khazaria (see map  below), an empire of the Turkic speaking Khazars from the 7th to the 10th centuries, converted to Judaism in the 8th century.

Not many people know that.
