White beards have been seen supporting the leaders in Dirilis Ertugrul, Kurulus Osman, and Ihtyarlar. Some people named them as Heyet in history. According to historical literature, Mete Han is believed to be the creator of this secret corporation. But in TV series like Dirilis Ertugrul and Payitaht Abdulhamid, the initiator of White beards is not described. As you can watch in TV series Dirilis Ertugrul, Ertugrul Ghazi was also a part of White beards secret organization that accustomed to give pieces of advice and intelligence-based information to Ertugrul. This origin of information was also shifted to Osman Ghazi.
Here, the question raises that how Osman Ghazi established an Empire from a tribe without any surveillance and army power? So, there must be a confidential source for all these to assist him. It is believed after strong theories about white beards that they disengaged with the Ottomans after Sultan Mehmed ll vanquished Constantinople because the Ottoman state had become powerful enough to govern the whole world.

They picked their best Alps and sent them to gather information. The Seljuk Empire of Rum also kept the same lore and Ottoman Sultans certainly began the use of spies in the decision making procedure. There were four different categories of secret agents; the first scrutiny was the front Akinjis, then Deliler for finding facts and the white beards the concealed ones and then the Alps for implementing the orders.
