      why you title title is so shitty?
      It sais: "Mongolskie inwazje na Węgrzech i w Polsce DOKUMENTALNY"
      It should say: "Mongolskie inwazje na Węgry i w Polskę DOKUMENTALNY" or actually "Mongolskie najazdy na Węgry i w Polskę DOKUMENTALNY"

    The Hungarians learned from their mistakes in the first invasions.
    1. The recuritment of more knights, as their heavy armor can shurg off attacks from Mongolian horse archer.
    2. Hiring and training crossbowmen, since it is easier for peasants to learn and yet it has the capability to kill the Mongol light cavarly.
    3. Constructing more stone fortifications to delay and to force the Mongols to suffer losses in sieges. Contrary to popular belief, the Mongols rarely encountered well fortified cities. When they did, the Mongols suffered greatly at the hands of the defenders. For example, the Mongols repeatedly failed to push through the Song defense of Southern China due to a pair of stone fortesses. It is only when the Mongols recurited Muslim engineers to construct counter-weight trebuchets did they breached the Song defense.
    4. Creating new baronies, so that local nobles have the resources and rights to establish local militias. This is a key strategy, as unlike the "civilized militaries," the Mongols sole source of supplies are from raiding outlaying villages in small parties. Destroyed enough of these parties, the Mongols would lose too many men and would lack the supplies to maintain the invasion.

    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 ).

    Very nice episode, about a very interesting and complex period of time in Eastern Europe. One thing you did not mention however, which I personally consider very important and worth mentioning is that the bulgarian ruler Constantin Tikh, did not just suddenly die, he fell victim to the first and only succesfull peasent uprising in european feudal history. It was led by a man called Ivaylo, has was a very fascinating character said to have inspired many other later peasent uprisings and many other later historical figures such as Yan Hus and Joan of Arc. The conditions for this to happen were because Constantine Tikh did not always pay his tribute to Nogai, so the mongols would pillage the northern countryside of Bulgaria for years, without Constantine actually bothering to do anything about this. The bulgarian peasentry was expectedly furious, they were led by Ivaylo, in many battles against the mongols in which they succesfully defeated the armies of Nogai in three separate battles, making the mongols flee north of the danube. After this he rebels led by Ivaylo were able to confront the royal forces, still loyal to Constantine Tikh in a battle infront of the gates of Tarnovo (the bulgarian capital) in which it is said Ivaylo personally killed Constantine and became ruler of Bulgaria for three years. Ivaylo married Constantine's widow, niece of Michael VIII (she betrayed him because he was planning to remove her from power in Bulgaria) lvaylo defeated the byzantine armies led by Michael VIII, by ambushing two of his armies in the balkans passes and destroying them (de-javu) after that he succesfully waged more war against the Golden Horde for 3 years. Unfortunatelly he was betrayed by his own vasals who could never accept a peasent commoner as their tsar, so he fled to Nogai, where he weas eventually killed on the orders of Michael the 8th. (Michael's daugther is said to have instigated this since she was wife of Chaka). Thank you for reading. Keep making such wonderful material, you guys are the only youtube channel that I so gladly donate to, I wish I could give more. You deserve it. Respect from Bulgaria.

To discuss it properly would have been another 5 minutes at least onto this video, already very long as it was, and alot more animating it.

    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).

    A polish peasant farmer is digging in his field one day when he hits something with his shovel. Picking it up and dusting it off, he recognizes it as an old lamp. A genie pops out and offers him three wishes. The Pole thinks about his wishes for the entire day and finaly decides. "Genie", he says, "I want the Mongol hordes to sweep through Poland." The Genie snaps his fingers and a low rumbling sound of hoofbeats is heard. Over the horizon come the Mongol hordes which ride down and kill everything in their path. They wheel around and ride back out. The farmer picks himself up and asks for the same thing for his second wish. Again the Mongols ride in and destroy everything in their path. Whatever they didn't kill last time, they kill this time. Whatever they killed last time, they set on fire. They wheel around and ride back out. The Pole picks himself up and asks for the same thing for his third wish. This time the Mongols don't even bother to stop since there isn't anything left to destroy. The genie just can't stand it any more. "You could have had anything. ANYTHING!", the genie says. "Why did you waste your wishes on this?" The farmer replies, "In order for the Mongols to ride over Poland three times, they would have had to go through Russia six times."

    Hungary was somewhat lucky in this period.
    Throughout massive crises Hungary usually had very weak kings; Vladislaus II being an example, fucked up the Hungarian army and nobility pathing the way for Mohacs.
    Béla IV was a strong ruler, and if he wasn’t king at the time, and another weak ruler was in charge, I don’t think Hungary would’ve made it out of the 13th century. He’s got to be one of the greatest Hungarian rulers imo. Not many can take on the might of the mongols, lose and still maintain your prior territorial borders.

      They need to make a series of the mongols especially subotai. I don’t think a movie only works unless it totally lays out who and what he did.
      I do like Genghis khan telling subotai he is wrong when asked “what’s best in life?” And then asks Conan. Underrated movie. Hopefully John Milnus gets a great movie made of screen play for Genghis Khan.

    I am glad finally this series of video came out to literally document the history of Mongol invasion.
    "Scratch a Russian and you'll find a Tatar", but not in 95% of China population(the biggest ethnic group, Han). Long time Chinese were wronged to be Mongolian. However, same as what happened in Europe in 13th century, China(the Song Dynasty) was invaded by Mongol and was conquered, and people in Song Dynasty were officially treated to be the lowest class of the Mongol Empire. Main body of Chinese people were the exact victims of Mongol invasion. In Chinese Han ethnic group's tale, evil daemon comes from the north. In Korean tale, evil daemon comes from the west. In Europe tale, evil daemon might come from the east. All are telling the same thing.That was a miserable, horrible time. My family book told me that my ancestor and his brother were killed by Mongolian with four limbs cut.
    People can tell Chinese Han people are quite different from those north people who liked to invade other countries. Chinese people were lived on agriculture, raising plants, and lacking of horses and oxen. Chinese people used cities to defend themselves, because of lacking of horses, they did not have capability to move the army to Europe. By face appearance, Chinese Han people are more similar to Korean, Japanese and Vietnamese.

    Interesting fact is that Mongols had two invasions on Serbia, and both were unsuccessful. It all started with smaller raids on frontiers, but soon after that Mongols sent stronger army which entered deeply into Serbian territory, but it was defeated. In that time Serbia was divided on two parts, ruled by brothers, kings Dragutin and Milutin from Nemanjić dynasty. Few years later Mongols raised army and sent it again on Serbia. Serbian army allowed them to enter into Serbia, and waited for the Mongols near town of Peć. Milutin and Dragutin made a decisive victory, repelling Mongols for the second time, and at the same time conquering some areas on north-northeast. King Milutin, in order to prevent potential new attacks, sent his son Stefan Uroš III as hostage to guarantee the peace.

    Maybe You could make a docummentary about Feudal Partition of Poland (1138-1320, pol. Rozbicie Dzielnicowe). As this would explain why Poland had so much difficulty fighting against Mongols, and it set foundation for future conflicts in the region.
    And, ironically enough, it was made with good intentions that backfired terribly...

    Let me show something:
    Mongolian invasions of Hungary:
    1241: victory (battle of mohi)
    1285: not victory (draw)
    1345: defeat --->TOTAL HUNGARIAN VICTORY !
    In 1345 King Louis the Great sent baron Andrew Lackfi to invade the lands of the Golden Horde in retaliation for the Tatars' earlier plundering raids against Transylvania.
    On the days 2-5 february 1345 the hungarian army crushed the huge tatar army. TOTALLY ! It was the three days long battle,one of the biggest battle of middle ages.
    Thereafter the Golden Horde's control of the lands between the Eastern Carpathians and the Black Sea weakened.
    So the Hungarian Kingdom became great power.
    Please make a video about these events !
    THX from Hungary !! Amazing work again !

    Chaka was the son of the Mongol leader Nogai Khan by a wife named Alaka. Sometime after 1285 Chaka married a daughter of George Terter I of Bulgaria, named Elena. In the late 1290s, Chaka supported his father Nogai in a war against the legitimate khan of the Golden Horde Toqta, but Toqta was victorious and defeated and killed Nogai in 1299.
    At about the same time Chaka had led his supporters into Bulgaria, intimidated the regency for Ivan II into fleeing the capital, and imposed himself as ruler in Tărnovo in 1299. It is not completely certain whether he reigned as Emperor of Bulgaria or simply acted as the overlord of his brother-in-law Theodore Svetoslav. He is accepted as a ruler of Bulgaria by Bulgarian historiography.
    Chaka did not long enjoy his new position of power, as the armies of Toqta followed him into Bulgaria and besieged Tărnovo. Theodore Svetoslav, who had been instrumental in assisting Chaka's seizure of power, organized a plot in which Chaka was deposed and strangled in prison in 1300. His head was sent to Toqta, which in turn secured Theodore Svetoslav's position as the new emperor of Bulgaria. It seems that Theodore Svetoslav's cooperation contributed to the withdrawal of Mongol interference in Bulgaria. copied from wikipedia

    Very good! Pity you missed out the Battle of Torockó where the Mongols lost some 26,000 warriors. Oh, and let's not forget John of Carpini, who wrote of a place where the Mongols buried "those who died in Hungary, as many had died there." They never came back in any big way, either.

      If we had unlimited time and resources for these videos (and could them all 1 hour long) I would have loved to discuss more on Milutin the the Serbian expansion, as that does tie into Nogai's role in the region. But we always have to draw a line on how much information gets into one video.

    My ancestors come from Prußia and are registered and known since 1268. Some still have the so called Prußian eye lid, which is an Asian inheritance. In my family we came to the conclusion that 800 years ago some family members had relations with a Mongol person. I should consider a DNA test to see if this is true.

    The Mongols had a great army and combat experience. They got everything they encountered on their way. Why, after several years of war with the Slavs, they stopped marching to Western Europe? Slavs were too demanding opponent? They had too much losses during the fights? There were internal conflicts in the Mongolian army because the gains were too small compared to the losses? How is it possible that the Slavs and Hungarians, despite having lost many battles, stopped the largest army in the world? This story should be told to the whole world! Bravo Slavs and Hungarians. A true stronghold of Europe until today!

      whenever the mongols prepped to invade western europe their Khan would die, a pretty amazing stroke of luck tbh. the slavs and hungarians were defeated many times over & russia was conquered , it would've been easy for the mongols to pass through them into the west. It would've been an amazing fight if they had though, the holy roman empire vs mongol empire

      Inertia and entropy.
      The Mongol war machine lost its steam long ago and was past its prime by then. Heavily relying on mercenary and locally recruited forces instead of Mongolians themselves.
      In the first raid Eastern Europe fought with the true Mongol army, composed by Mongolian horse archers and heavy lancers. Also, led by a very capable, genius commander Subutai.
      Second time around we fought a small chunk of the much weaker Golden Horde that had since declined in power and was no longer aiming for the same as the Mongolia of its forefathers.
      The command of the troops also rested in the hands of people of questionable skill.
      So, rather than saying we fought off the Mongols, it should be said we fought with an army of other people hired by the Mongols.
      And I'm glad it is so, for if they continued their conquests at the same rate as initially, I might not be here today to write this message.

    I feel it's little inaccurate to call nogai, chagatai or ilkhanate mongols. While there were all descendents of Genghis, they all very quickly converted to Islam due to the fact that their peoples were mostly turkic. My reasoning is that Mongols were notorious for not taking part in religion, they were very tolerant and allowed their subjects to worship anything as long as they also prayed for the Khan's soul.
