The story takes places in 13th century and tells a story of Ertugrul who is the father of the Osman I, the founder of the Ottoman Empire.
400 large nomad tents are settled in Anatolia but get through a difficult time due to famine. All these nomads want to migrate to another place where they can have a better life.
Suleyman Shah who is the leader of this group (Kayi clan) wants to give a better life for his people but he does not want to make a quick decision without considering all side effects.
Because of this reason, some nomads start to blame him for not being able to be a good leader. Even his elder ambitious son Gundogdu (Kaan Tasaner) starts to question his decisions. However, his younger son Ertugrul trusts his father decisions all the time and does not want to be involved in clan issues.
Ertugrul (Engin Altan Duzyatan) is a young and brave man who often goes to hunting with his three close men Turgut (Cengiz Coskun), Bamsi Beyrek (Nurettin Sonmez), and Dogan (Cavit Cetin Guner). One of these days, he saves the life of a young girl named Halime (Esra Bilgic) and her family from Temple Knights. He brings them to his own clan without knowing their true identity.
Halime and her family belong to Seljuk Empire noble family and are to be killed by the Empire if Ertugrul has not saved them. Due to the fear of being caught, they do not reveal their true identity. However, their arrival brings new difficulties to Kayi clan: now they have to fight against Seljuk Empire if they do not let their guests go and they have to fight against Temple Knights who are looking for revenge.
Meanwhile, Ertugrul bears the burden of his clan on his shoulders. He has to find a new land for his clan.
For this reason, Ertugrul and his three men go to Halep in order to make an agreement with Halep Shah: they will want a new land in exchange for their assistance to the Halep Shah against Temple Knights and other non-Muslims.
Ertugrul wants to be successful in this journey and wants to return his clan immediately to see his first love Halime again. He makes a good impression on Halep Shah and eventually, gets a land for Kayi tribe. This new land has fertile soils but very close to templars.
In their new land, Ertugrul and Kayi tribe need to fight against templars and the crusaders. The pope and templars are preparing for the sixth crusade (that will take place during the period of 1228-1229). With the aim of recapturing the city of Jerusalem, templars try to weaken the Seljuk Empire. They try to abolish the unity in the muslim world and set Turkmens against Anatolian Seljuks.
