    King Béla IV of Hungary left to his son, to Stephen, a prosperous, a rebuilt, a fortified kingdom in 28 years. Béla successfully concluded the alliance between the houses of Árpád and Anjou with a mutual marriage contract. In the last year of his life, in December 1269, Abbot of Monte Cassino Bernhard Ayglerius visited Hungary as the envoy of King Charles I of Anjou. He reported enthusiastically to his lord, the foreign, impartial contemporary envoy saw Béla's court as follows:
    "The Hungarian royal house has incredible power, its military forces are so large that nobody in the East and the North dares even budge if the triumphant and glorious king mobilizes his army. Most of the countries and princes of the North and East belong to his empire by kinship or conquest."
    Galician-Volhynian Chronicle about the second Mongol invasion:
    "Talabuga went to the mountains which can be crossed in three days, but he wandered for thirty days pursued by the wrath of God, and they were so hungry that they started to eat human flesh, then they themselves began to fall, and incredible many were lost. Eyewitnesses said that there were a hundred thousand deads, and the ungodly Telebuga came back on foot and his wife on a bad nag, God made him so miserable"
    Louis I of Hungary dispatched Andrew Lackfi to invade the lands of the Golden Horde in retaliation for the Tatars' earlier plundering raids against Transylvania and the Szepesség. Lackfi and his army of mainly Szekely warriors crossed the Carpathian Mountains and imposed a decisive defeat upon a large Tatar army on 2 February 1345. The Hungarian warriors were victorious in their campaign, decapitating the local Tatar leader, the brother-in-law of the Khan, Atlamïş, and making the Tatars flee toward the coastal area. The Golden Horde was pushed back behind the Dniester River, thereafter the Golden Horde's control of the lands between the Eastern Carpathians and the Black Sea weakened. We can see this event leads the establishment of Moldavia in 1346 as a Hungarian vassal state.

    Great documentary. I'll make some comments to finish up the story we have heard. 1. Battle of Mohi took place on the 11th of April 1241. Still, the Mongol army could rarely cross the river Danube. They managed to do it in January of the following year after the Danube had iced up. In the meantime, king Bela IV reorganized his army and armed it with the most effective weapons against the Mongols, with crossbows. Mongols were frightened by this weapon because shots with crossbows were much more dangerous and devastating for them. In February 1242, at the fort of Esztergom, the spiritual capital of medieval Hungary, Batu's and Subotai's army was heavily defeated with crossbows from the strong fort. In the meantime, the archbishop of Esztergom Cardinal Benedek's army eliminated the Mongol troops from the Verecke pass and was hunting for the adventuring Mongol warriors in the northern part of Hungary, causing severe casualties to them. That is why Batu ordered his warriors to leave the Carpathian basin at once. (2) Also to remember the everyday people of the middle of Hungary. Between the rivers, Tisza and Danube, the Mongols practically made the native population extinct. The native peasant built earth forts and fought to the death against the Mongol hordes, causing heavy losses to them. They were the anonym heroes of the Mongol campaigns. Their villages and cities, like the Gold City (Petermonostora), have been explored, and the findings are exhibited in Kecskemet. Archeological explorations were conducted in line with the building of the M5 highway between Szeged and Budapest in the 1980s. All these are evidence of the victory of the Hungarian Kingdom in the first Mongol invasion, too. (2) During the second Mongol campaign, the Polish-Hungarian Coalition was an example of the traditional Polish-Hungarian friendship, which dates back to the Scythian times, the Sarmatian-Scythian-Hunnic era. This national feeling still exists and blooms even today in both countries. (3) In the following century, the Hungarian king, I. Lajos the Great drove the final nail into the coffin of the Golden Horde at the rivers Dnepr and Don, and the coast of the Black Sea. The Hungarian Kingdom defeated the Mongol army three times in history and swept them out of Europe. All these made it possible for Russia to come true. Poland and Hungary saved Western Europe from devastation, not for the first and not for the last time in history. Nobody has given us thanks for this sacrifice.

Look at who is telling you this stuff, “Golden Khanate” and someone with a Kanji name, they want you to believe the mongols just had no issue defeating the Poles and Hungarians. If you actually look it up, there are more sources that say they had heavy casualties, furthermore one of the Mongol commanders died at Mohi, his name was Bakatu.

    Mr Roberts and Real Crusades History team, I really do like all the great content and great quality documentary videos. But can I request a video when you get the time? I would really appreciate a video on the symbology the Knights Templars used. A person I know said they used one symbol, but I see no reference to it online. Though I do see other symbols that are used that look more pagan in nature. I would really like to see the actual history of their symbology instead of all the conspiracy theories about their symbols leading to their wealth.

      Ancient Egypt's Gods, were very understandable, they worshipped all they saw that created life, as well as what they saw that assisted life, for example, the ancient Egyptians believed that Osiris (the God of the dead, God of fertility, and God of resurrection) gave them the gift of ''barley'' one of their most important crops. A large temple was built to honour Osiris at Abydo.
      They would not only worship things they saw as life-giving, but also life preserving, and that led to them having some quite extraordinary Gods, like the Crocodile (Sobek). They believed that worshipping what could harm or even kill you, would spare you, should you encounter any Crocodiles, but more importantly, they believed that Sobek could protect the Pharaoh from dark magic. They dedicated half the Temple Kom Ombo In Aswan to the Crocodile, LOL.
      What we see looking through all of Ancient Egypt's 'Gods' is how their understanding improved over time, for example, their most worshipped God, and their most powerful God, was “Amun” (the king of the Gods). Only later, they realized and understood that the sun had a huge importance to man's survival. So they then took “Ra” (the sun God) and added It to “Amun”, creating the all-powerful God “Amun-Ra”. A large and very important temple was built at Thebes to honour Amun-Ra.
      We then see probably the most well-known shift In Ancient Egypt's Gods, when Tutankhamen's father, Akhenaten, understood that without the sun life would cease to exist. So Akhenaten abolished all the other Gods, replacing them all with the “Aten” (the sun Disk). It actually makes perfect sense to worship the sun. Opposed as to some deity of deception, greed, corruption, murder, and outright savagery.

    The Mongol Empire seems more of a "protection" extortion racket than a true empire. Like when organized crime gets tribute from a business, on the threat that the business will be vandalized or burned, with the owner "roughed up". The Romans "romanized" their conquered territories. Enemy combatants enslaved. Roman veterans taking local wives. As in Gaul.

      First Vlahs were let into the Carpathian Basin one century later, together with German, and Slav people. Royal officers arranged the colonization of Transylvania (at that time Cumania), they were called kenéz (Hungarian), knyez (Romanian), Schultheiss (German), and lehota (Slav). Romanians appear in written history around the 16th century, before that only Vlahs were mentioned. What happened more with Romanians in 1859 - well, I have no idea, but the Mongol invasion took place more than 600 years earlier. During the realm of king Béla IV, the name of Transylvania was Cumania, the land of the Cumans. A significant proportion of them still lives in Hungary's Great Plain.

      For your innformation: Central Europe comprised most of the territories of the Holy Roman Empire and those of the two neighboring kingdoms of Poland and Hungary. Hungary and parts of Poland were later part of the Habsburg monarchy, which also significantly shaped the history of Central Europe.
      Unlike a Eastern Europe elements of cultural (Latin Civilizization) unity for Northwestern, Southwestern and Central Europe were Catholicism and Latin.
      Eastern Europe (Byzantine and Turanian Civilization), which remained Eastern Orthodox, was dominated by Byzantine cultural influence.

      @Real Crusades History I honestly think the names of the kings, towns, rivers, troop movements, dates etc on the maps add a visual angle that makes it easier to comprehend the story. So I think the current video format would be better than audio only storytelling.

      Actually going forward I was thinking of just doing podcasts. I'm more interested in the idea of audio presentations without having to worry about visuals. What do you think?

      There is no virtue in losing. War isn't about honor and valor. Would you be stubborn about it when the lives of your loved ones, your people and the safety and survival of your home is at stake? The stepp people knew that better than anyone after centuries of hardship and fighting. They evolved to be practical n efficient, none of that valor bs. Hit and run is good it minimizes the casualty on your side.

    Why did the Mongols withdraw? They were starving in the fields of Hungary. Then Hungary went into Poland and smacked them again.
