      @El Bandito I first solutes you. Because, it's a mere fact that each human being has his own way of thinking and, perceiving things. And that's the exact balance that forms life itself. Because life would be absolutely miserable if we all thought and acted alike. Oh yea, the villains wins more i agree. They come in, rob, take and, kill and they move on. But, when I die, I want to be remembered as a son who fought well against evil...👊🏾👊🏾👊🏾

      @OG Yohon Love uP That's up to personal interpretations. For each hero who saved a life, there are dozens who took it away. Villains win more, cause harming is easier than helping--always has been. History, as well as the current state of the world already shows us that fact.

      @El Bandito I somewhat disagree. The righteous ALWAYS prevail. You don't have to physically survive an ordeal in order to be triumphant. If you take a look back in time, most heroes died during their endeavors. Because in the end, it's not a matter of dying, it's how and why you died that counts the most. Because even in death, the righteous prevails...👊🏾👊🏾👊🏾

      @Efe Güller Fun Fact:
      all Turkic people share similar DNA types Except for Turkish people whom DNA is Identical to Armenians and Kurds while those of western Turkey is similar to Greeks. Why is that? According to DNA studies in Istanbul university only 15% of Turkey has central asian Turkic DNA. It seems Turkish people are not even really Turkic. Turkish people are suppose to be Turkmen or Oghuz Turks like the Seljuks but all Statues and murals like Seljuks are Mongoloid looking. Even the Islam Hadith states that Turks have small eyes and flat noses.
      Islamic Hadith (95)Chapter: Fighting against the Turks(95)باب قِتَالِ التُّرْكِ
      "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Turks; people with small eyes, red faces, and flat noses. Their faces will look like shields coated with leather. The Hour will not be established till you fight with people whose shoes are made of hair."

    I find it very interesting that the Mongol and Roman Empires respectively had similar declines but from opposite sides. Roman imperium began with an Imperial dynasty from which legitimacy came and gradually the military took more and more of a role in choosing who would be emperor. The Mongols began with the army choosing the next ruler and drifting away from that towards imperial dynasties. 🤔

    The debate over whether corruption or climate change brought down the Yuan seems to highlight something interesting. Such corruption and gift giving was hardly unusual for states in that time and it was only with the arrival of the climate crises that the system broke. Like all corrupt systems it worked fine...until it didn't.

    Korea was subjugated by Khan army. I still remember the stories of 500 children roped and transported through the snowy mountains to northward to be trained to become Khan’s future soldiers. I also read that some of the escapees had their hands drilled with a hole to insert rope through it to set an example to other children what could happen in attempt of escape during travel. Not sure how accurate it is.

      @Kal El Gog and Magog are tribes of people that lived somewhere in north Asia modern day Russia. They were skilled with the arrows, and were worshippers of the sky, so they're most likely Tengri worshippers. According to Abrahamic faiths they were sealed behind an iron dam by a conqueror. That conqueror was either the Persian king Darius or his son Xerxes, more likely Darius.

    I've been subscribed since the Battle of Trafalgar (no, not since 1805, you know what I mean) and together with creators like HistoryMarche, Epic History TV, Historia Civilis and many others, I've been convinced for years that television simply cannot compete, except for some obvious classics like Shoah, World at War, The Civil War (Ken Burns), Apocalypse: La premiere guerre mondiale etc, I'm just deflated anytime I turn on Discovery or the History channel. On the off chance (5%) that they actually have something historical, it's usually some generic talking head formulaic trash that you just know was made without any love going in to it. Shame on them for being easily bested by dudes making history docs without any large studio or network backing them up, shame.

      @JustFly Yeah but let's be real, the 13th century Mongols were a hard people. If you weren't hardboiled, you didn't survive your childhood.
      As they say, hard times breed strong people.
      Strong people bring easy times.
      Easy times breed soft people.
      And then soft people bring hard times.
      And the wheel turns this way.
      I have the luxury of being a soft man, unable to imagine the strengths required to do what these people did, but if we were both born in 13th century Mongolia, we'd either die in childhood or be strong enough to follow our Khan.
      And to BE the Khan, yeah. That takes a special breed of alpha-ness that I do not possess. Temujin was an extremely strong man, both mentally and physically, for sure.

    There is one overarching factor you have not yet covered in full in your brilliant subset “How the Mongols lost X, Y, Z” of your matchless analysis of world military history. Bravo for those and your other works, by the way. That factor is the Black Death along the Silk Road throughout China, South and East Asia.
    Along with the string of environmental catastrophes (Mandate of Heaven failures) you carefully list in the Mongol loss of China, the effects of the Black Death in the Far East must have been equivalent or worse to those in primitive Europe compared to its packed cities, Mongol military garrisons and bustling trade routes. I have seen no such analysis from anyone.
    We are facing the same Mandate of Heaven failures across the planet in real time. Covid and its deadlier upcoming sisters will mimic Black Death societal and military effects. Your analysis is the only one could draw parallels (and perhaps retrieval solutions) from this sorry mess we’ve gotten ourselves into once again. Do please extend the scope of your analyses.

    I’ve heard of the term “hot blooded” but the Mongols must have had lava running thru their veins... if they weren’t at war with some Nation, they were in conflict with themselves and trying to take eachother out. I can’t imagine the horror it must have been to try and face them? I always thought they took themselves out, till they had no power and got erased from History. I always wondered if the Natives in America came from Mongol lineage and have any Mongolian blood in them?

      @Mohican Theluststar yes, it's theorized they crossed across where Alaska and Russia separated eventually as the continental drifts have us currently going farther apart albeit very slowly. Thousands upon thousands of years EASILY turns a "short jaunt over ice" into an impassable treacherous quest, particularly without a boat. To say nothing of the temperature changes that have occurred over the discussed hundreds of thousands of years.

    After Kublai’s death in 1294, the Mongol Empire fragmented. Many of his successors were inept, and none attained Kublai’s stature. From 1300 on disputes over succession weakened the central government in China, and there were frequent rebellions. The Yuan Dynasty fell in 1368, overthrown by the Chinese rebel leader Zhu Yuanzhang, The most enduring part of the Mongol Empire proved to be the Golden Horde. It had begun to decline significantly in the mid-14th century

      Golden Horde survived longer due to infighting between the Russians and Slavs. They also occupied the Steppe which helped to maintain their lifestyle and culture. However, the ethnic Mongols were slowly usurped by the Kypchaks due to intermarriage and Turkic influence due to higher Turkic population. The majority of the Steppe population of the Golden Horde were Kypchaks and they unintentionally caused the Golden Horde to transform unofficially back to the Kypchak Confederation. The Golden Horde was Mongol all but in name during its last years.

    It was a great pleasure to hear about the history of the Golden Horde stripped away from the layer of myths we were told at history lessons in Russia. People like Mamay or Ahmed Khan are poured into us without historical context or pretext, Kazan, Astrakhan and Crimean Khanate are just given, as if they were there for the Muscovite princes/tsars to be captured, and the tribute/gift of Russian tsars to the Crimea that lasted well into XVIII century is omitted.
    It is also worth mentioning that, just like Mughal Timurids of India, Moscow princes, starting with the Novgorod knyaz Alexandre Nevski, were actually gurgans i.e. they were married to or descended from Genghisid princesses. If you look at the reconstruction of Ivan IV skull, his Mongoloid appearance is unmistakable - just a good deal of Mongol blood is unmistakable my own family.

    A little background on the Khan's dismissal of Toghto during the siege of Gao-Yu.
    As part of the plan to keep conquered Song territory under control, the Yuan didn't build fortifications in southern China, lest they became the stronghold of rebel leaders, resulting in prolonged resistance Rather, the Yuan hoped to resolve things on the field, wipe out any resistance with its superior cavalry, which rebels weren't likely to have in large quantity.
    This however had two undesirable consequences,
    1. A relatively small of rebels can quickly capture large swath of territory and quickly snowball, which would be a problem especially if there are few Mongols in the region and many civilians are sympathetic to the rebels. A good example of this is how Xiang Pulue (項普略) was able to capture much of Jianxi and Zhejiang, even putting Nanjing (one of the very few fortified cities at the time) under siege with only hundreds of starting troops.
    2. The Yuan army's siege ability deteriorated considerably. What was special about Gao-Yu was that Zhang Shi-cheng (unlike other rebel leaders) fortified the city really well, having the time to do this as Yuan didn't go for him quick enough. Consequently the Yuan army, despite its massive size, could do little other than to surround the city and patiently wait for it to run out of supplies. That took too long however, long enough to make the emperor become suspicious of Toghto's actual motivation, and decided to recall him.

    Interesting! It seems like the main reason the Mongol Empire fell was unstoppable infighting, political instability, and the ecological destruction from the Little Ice Age. It isn't very surprising, as administering such a huge realm presented huge problems with the limited technology of the day. Everything just spun out of control.
