In the study Kutadgu Bilig's sections XII, XVII,XVIII, XXI, XXIII, XXIV, XXV, XXVI, XXVII, XLI, XLII and XLIII have beenexamined in terms of the design of the ruler and the understanding of thestate. However, the other sections of thework were also utilized according to the subject discussed. Citations from the work have been included in thepresentation of the manager features. In the study, the type of the rulerdepicted in Kutadgu Bilig is knowledgeable, powerful, warrior, makes his peoplehappy by expanding the boundaries of his country by managing his state with theknowledge of politics. However, due to the acceptance ofIslam in the Karahanlılar State, the influence of religion in the depictions ofthe ruler is observed. Considering the concept of Turkishstate and sovereignty, it is seen that the features possessed by the ruler arein fact the expected characteristics that a ruler should have.
