Yes, there is a Turkish Great Chess, Variation One. I don't know what happened to it. I will try to write it up (again?) next week, unless someone else gets to it first.

Here are Turkish Great Chess II-VI, but there is no Turkish Great Chess I. Does it hide under another name, or why is it missing?

Yes, I was confused by the worded description.

'Each player's first rank, from left to right, is Rook, Knight, Bishop, Archbishop, General, King, Queen, Bishop, Knight, Rook.'

I guess that means from where each person is sitting rather than from the vantage point of one side.

Thank you for helping me understand this matter better. Good to know.

Are you asking for an acknowledgment that the symmetry is rotational rather than mirrored? or that there are four singleton pieces in the center rather than two?

The description of this game does not mention the asymmetry contained in both the diagram and the preset. Accidental?

Castling is not mentioned in the only source. That's all I can tell you.

Is castling allowed in this game?

The concept of several powerful pieces on the board is not new. There are games with even more powerful arrays. The power of the pieces is balanced, at least in part, by the larger board. The game may lend itself to tactical play as a result of the ability of these pieces.

I'm not sure about this one,because some variants can be very hard to
For example,the general can move anywhere(that's not my comment),my 
comment is if we have a general on the board,why do we even have a queen
on the board or archbishop for that matter,I'm so confused!
