The gokturks were an powerful nomadic people of Turkic origin and were the first people to mass migrate to modern Central Asia after they conquered the Central Iranic Indo-European people. Their Gokturks were not caucasoid or Mongoloid but were an Hybrid race of Mongoloid/Caucasoids according to anthropologists.

The Gokturk Khanghante controlled Eastern Europe, Central Asia, South Siberia, parts of Caucasus and western Manchuria.  They fought against the East Asian 100% Mongoloid Chinese civilization. They also fought against other civilizations from the Central Asia and Caucasus who were 100% Indo-Europeans and North Caucasus.

Well according to anthropologist they say the Gokturks are racially 67% Mongoloid with 33% Caucasoid admixture technically speaking they are closer to the Mongoloid race but with admixture. They were quite tall as well.


The interesting thing is they had reddish and brown hair with blue and green eyes.

Bilga Khagan and Kul Tegin.  Chinese during the Tang Dynasty never mentioned racial differences between only cultural/lifestyle differences
