Cenk-name is a genre in Turkish literature in which events take place around Hz. Ali, Prophet Mohammad, companions of the prophet and some imaginative characters where imaginative events take place. It is full of hyperboles, extraordinary events and heroes. Venerated by both Alevites and Sunnites, Hz. Ali is generally at the heart of the works. He is a gallant, a savior, a paragon of compassion and a scholar; he never stabs anyone in the back; he is chivalrous. He is the arch enemy of the villains. In this article verses that mention the specialties of Hz. Ali in the work of great scholar Dursun Fakih, the first judge of the Ottoman Empire, also Osman Beg’s wife’s sister’s husband, will be articulated. Also, the subject of the work and characters will be mentioned. By focusing on some words present in Cumhûr-nâme, it will be shown that the work was written in the era of Old Anatolian Turkish. Some views about the reasons behind the creation of this work will also be articulated.
