    Fun Fact: My hometown was burned by the mongols, and to this day it has never had the same population. It only became a city again in 1920.

    The Mongols had a century of complete dominance before they were nerfed into the ground for breaking the game meta.

    A pleasure to watch as usual, lovely animations and explanations, and a pleasure to play, we have fought in miniatures a few Bela IV's battles, Mongol and Hungarian armies are truly superb, even in 15mm!

    The Mongols were so busy inner fighting, but when they got some leisure time, they invaded Europe

    While there were several factors leading to the Mongol campaigns becoming less successful, the fact that Europeans had learned to fight the Mongols should not be underestimated.

    The original plan of Batu Khan and Subutai was exactly "keep conquering until see the Ocean", so if Ogedai Khan didn't die at that time, Batu and Subutai wouldn't stop invasion. In fact, when the Ogedai' death arrived the western expedition army, Batu had already prepared for battle of the siege of Vienna(to catch Bela IV).

    Fun but little known fact, that city that Batu founded and named Sarai would eventually be renamed Volgograd which played an integral part in one of the biggest wars we've known.

    It’s fascinating that the Mongols nearly conquered the entire known world, but the medieval Europeans may not have known the extent or know where and what Asia is without maps (until Polo came about...)

    Ladislav lV (Hungarian: lV Kun László) was the most interesting member of the Árpád dynasty. He was half Cuman ( Hungarian: Kun) therefore he was much more lax and easy going than his predecessors, he loved (Cuman) women and wine, but apparently never touched his wife Isabella from the Kingdom of Naples. Once he was imprisoned by the nobility to have sex with Isabella, but he still refused, saying she's too frigid and lacks passion. 😅 He was excommunicated several times by the pope because of his lifestyle and friendship with the Cumans. He prompted Simon Kézai to write the history of the Hungarian people (Gesta Hungarorum) where the Huns are being shown as the ancestors of the Hungarians. Both Kézai and the king believed that the Hungarians, Huns and Cumans are basically the same people (Cumans, contrary to other minorities, quickly adopted the Hungarian language and are speaking Hungarian to this day). Ladislav saw his Cuman brethren as 'true Hungarians' their lifestyle as, pure as that of the old Hungarians in Árpád's days. According to Kézai, Árpád, And therefore Ladislav himself is the direct descendent of Attila, the capital Buda is named after Attila's brother Bleda (still Buda in Hungarian literature), Attila's wife Ildikó was Hungarian according to Kézai (while in reality she was a Gepid, but the name Ildikó as well as Attila are still very popular among Hungarians). Although seen as an intelligent, but good-for-nothing drunkard, Ladislav won most of his battles. He defeat Premysl Otakar who was considered to be a military genius at the time and seperated Austria from Bohemia and granting it to a minor swiss nobleman called Rudolf von Habsburg. 😏 He drove back the Mongols and was pitted against the Cumans by the church, defeated them in the battle of Hód lake, but was quick to velcome them back once things have settled. At the end of his reign he had his royal guard composed of only Mongols and Cumans. (he banished the Hungarian nobility and clergy from his court...long story) In the end it was his beloved Cumans who murdered him while he was having sex with his Cuman concubine Édua. (Édua's brother later took revange on the assassins ).

    Many would always group the Mongols as a single entity where they have a single political structure. But every time we learn how complex and fascinating Mongol history is thanks to you.

    The Hungarians learned from their mistakes in the first invasions.

    Dan Carlin's Wrath of the Khans is a great overview of the Mongols rise to power. It's what brought me here for a more visual overview.
