Boila (Old Bulgarian: ?; Greek: ; Old Turkic: , romanized: Boyla) was a title worn by some of the Bulgar and Göktürk aristocrats (mostly of regional governors and noble warriors) in the First Bulgarian Empire (681-1018) and Second Turkic Khaganate (682-744). For the linguists, the title "Boila" is the predecessor or an old form of the title "Bolyar". The Boil(a)s were two types: internal ("great") and external ("small"). The internal Boil(a)s were governors of the Comitates (administrative regions).Most of the popular linguists believe that "Boila" has old-Turkic origin and the meaning of the word can be translated as "noble".
