|Kagan of the Turkic Kaganate|
Bagha Qaghan was the seventh ruler (587–589) of the Turkic Kaganate. He may have been  the 'great kaghan' that was killed with an arrow by Persian commander Bahrām Chobin during First Perso-Turkic War. He is given as Čulohóu in Chinese records, and as Šāwa, Sāva, or Sāba in Sasanian-based sources.

- Iranica.Bahram says 'great kaqan' without giving a name. Baumer, Hist.cent.asia,2,pp99,174 says 'may have been' citing Al-Tabari who said 'highest kaghan'. Chavannes guessed 'Sogdian sub-king'. Litvinsky, hist.civs.cent.asia,iii,369 has "Ch'u-lo". Sinor, hist.inner.asia,306 has 'Ni-li' (sic), following Sebeos who said 'Great King of the Turks'. The problem is to explain why the ruler of Mongolia would leave his realm to fight in Afghanistan.
