The Mongol khanate known as “The Golden Horde”, was established by Batu Khan, Grandson of the legendary Genghis Khan, in 1255.

Due to the unique nature of this nomadic empire, even if it managed to become the most extensive contiguous land empire in history, it was subject, from its very beginning to a tendency towards fragmentation and inner power struggles. By the time of Batu Khan’s ascension to power, it was already fragmented into large kingdoms. The lands of the Golden Horde were situated in the northwestern corner of the empire and stretched from Siberia and Central Asia to Eastern Europe.

The peak of the power of this kingdom occurred in 1380 under Tokhtamysh Khan, the last great ruler of the horde who briefly unified all its territories under his command. However, the invasion of Timur, founder of the Timurid Empire, in 1396, threw the whole region into chaos and fragmentation into smaller khanates whose influence declined steadily.

The irruption of the Mongols towards the west changed history radically. This mighty force of skilled riders and mounted archers marked a milestone in Medieval warfare.
