    Believe it or not, the next Ottoman script is finally ready. Rejoice, the fans of that series, we are entering the strangest era. This video is a remake of our older video on the battle of Ankara - we decided to make it to show the Timurid perspective. If you are interested in the events after this battle, this video explains the Ottoman civil war: kzclip.org/video/IUlp9U2p5_c/бейне.html and this one covers the rise of the Mughals: kzclip.org/video/ycv4gDXbm7s/бейне.html

    Another weird thing about this battle is the experience of Johann Schiltberger. Schiltberger was a German Crusader who had fought the Ottomans at the battle of Nicopolis, was captured by Bayezid, and then in turn was captured by the Timurids when the Ottomans were defeated at Ankara... Strangely enough though, he lived, returned home eventually, and wrote about his adventure.

      @wilson the conqueror Magelan(if that's how you spell his name) would travel the world less than 200 years later. Oswald von Wolkenstein a diplomat and an outstanding music composer (seriously look up his songs) traveled most of Europe and made it as far as Georgia as referenced in his song "Durch Barbarei Arabia".

      That's not strange and it really fits Timur's true nature to spare him. Timur may see him as a historian and he was released to tell write the story. Just like when Timur spared ibn Khaldun, knowing that ibn Khaldun is actually a scholar rather than a commander.

    You really have to admire Stefan's loyalty. Bayezid was a foreign overlord who did not speak Stefan's language, he did not share Stefan's religion. Half of the Sultan's army had already defected to the enemy, Stefan could have taken his men and fled, he could have left Bayezid to his fate and instead retreated home to assert his independence. Instead, Stefan fought his way through hordes of Timurids to save his Sultan. He refused to retreat without his commander. Whatever bad blood exists between Serbs and Turks, I think both Serbs and Turks can agree that Stefan really embodied the virtues of chivalry, courage and honour.

      Great observation indeed. In a time where treason during battles were all too common, Stefan's stand is an epitaph to his honor and bravery. No one, and I mean no one would or could blame him should he have defected / ran from the field of battle.
      Yet, he fought until the end. A paragon of virtue, an example to all.

      @Dusan Stankovic the serbs were pretty much running the empire. Beyazıt was half Greek orthodox and wasn't very fond of the turkic people but used them as cannon fodder then sent in the Serbian knights in black armour to finish off the enemy with shock and awe. Mehmet took Constantinople in 1453 with those tactics and it was the Serbian knights who entered the fortress first and did their business.

    Timur's body rests in the Gur-e-Amir Mausoleum in Uzbekistan. His epitaph of dark nephrite jade can be found in two very interesting lines:
    "When I rise from the dead, the world will tremble."
    "Whoever disturbs my grave will unleash an invader more terrible than me."
    The second is interesting since a team of Soviet scientists led by Mikhail M. Gerasimov, took out the remains of Timur to evaluate them. The established day for the extraction was June 19, 1941.
    Two days later Nazi Germany began Operation Barbarossa, the invasion of the Soviet Union.
    Timur's body was returned to his grave with a Muslim religious ceremony on December 20, 1942. Three days later, the German high command decided to abandon the attempts to free the Sixth Army trapped in Stalingrad, leaving them to their fate. They surrendered on February 2, 1943, marking a turning point in the course of the second world war.
    This is referred to as the "Curse of Timur".
    Thanks K&G for this great documentary.

      @Abe Varis77 Ottoman empire was a muslim turkish empire with mostly islamic identity. Ottoman empires identity was mostly based on sunni islam. The turkish or turkic element didint play a big role since the ottomans saw themselfs as world conquerors and cosmopolitans. The turkish element was strong in the very beginning of the ottoman empire but after the empire grew and many non turks became subjects, the turkish element became insignificant. Only in the 19 century the ottoman empire transformed into a much more turkish one with turkish nationalist tendencies. Saying that the ottoman empire isnt turkish or turkic is as wrong as saying that the ottoman empire is a real turkic empire. It sure had turkish elements that became more and sometime less significant as times changed

      @Maximos Wolfe In those times, becoming a vassal was the norm not the exception because it ensured survival.
      Vassals always bid their time and shook it off when given the opportunity. Wallachia, Bogdan and Transylvania were Ottoman vassals for centuries, paying a titular tax and providing armies in wars for example and later in late 19th century Wallachia and Bogdan broke off to become Romania. Judging people in retrospect is always easy.

    Great work, very precise and informative, thank you. (1) Timur, though a great warrior king, proved himself to be a ruiner rather than a builder, thus his vast empire survived a few decades after his death. (2) Timur's victory over Ottomans gave a relief of 20 years to the Christian west, and delayed the fall of Constantinople by about half a century. (3) The House of Othman learned well from the enormous setback at the hands of eastern kin peoples, and took great care in the coming centuries to keep the other Turkic tribes at bay. (4) Ottoman Sultan Mehmed I the Restorer, though reigned for eight years (1413-21), overcame the challenges of recovery and put the Ottoman State back in some shape. (5) The subsequent three able sultans, namely Murad II (1421-51), Mehmed II the Conqueror (1451-81) and Bayezid II (1481-1512) built back in 90 years the Ottoman State into an empire and a huge economic powerhouse. (6) It was Mehmed II who first decided to deal with the issue of "other Turks" in the east, defeating the Aqqoyunlus in 1474, then Selim I the Grim (1512-1520) defeating the Safavids in 1514, and exterminating the Mameluk State in 1516-17. In 1520, when Suleiman I the Magnificent (1520-1566) was crowned, he already inherited, and further expanded & consolidated, a vast empire and economy. Already in 1534, it is argued that the Ottoman Empire had the 3rd largest GDP in the world (after China and India), which remained so by 1730. Final comment: Serbs, as exemplified by Stefan Lazarovic, and Greeks provided great soldiers and statesmen to the Ottoman Empire for centuries. My fellow Turks would be angry with me, but I would still call the Ottoman Empire as a Turco-Serbo-Greek empire modeled on a fusion of Persian and Greco-Roman statehood (the predecessor Seljuk Empire was modeled mostly on the Persian statehood with some Greek administrative traditions in the latter half). Love from Ankara, Turkey.

    Nice job K&G like every other time :) And here are some trivia if you like:
    1- Cubuk and Cataltepe is originally typed as Çubuk and Çataltepe in Turkish and pronunciation should be like Chubuk and Chataltepe. It has the same pronunciation with Canakkale (Chanakkale) the name of Gallipoli Campaign in Turkish. We say Gelibolu for Gallipoli but name the campaign as Çanakkale Cephesi (Canakkale Front).
    2- It is believed that a preverb in Turkish that roughly translates as "Eat a big bite but never say big words" comes from this battle. The point is you can eat and ingest a big bite in the end even if it is hard to do but you simply can not eat your own words. We know the letters between Bayazid and Timur and you guys covered this before on the first video about this battle so he simply could not eat his own words and retreat from the battlefield until death or capture (which is found worse than death in that time) is near.
    3- Up until this battle ottoman army consisted of the sultan and all of his sons. After the capture of sultan and some his sons along with him, firstly a tendency then a tradition of leaving a son behind in capital when sultan is campaigning has happened. Nearly Suleiman too was gonna be captured and with him all of the dynasty would be in hands of Timur. So they didnt risk it again in any future campaign.
    Great job and videos, wish you a nice day!

      @Olivia’s channel "Many" Serbs? Can you define and quantify 'many'? How many regiments from Marko Mrnjavcevic? How many from brothers Dragas? Yes, there were Serbian regiments fighting in the Ottoman army, because it was their vassal obligation. Nothing wrong with that. There were Greeks fighting in the Ottoman army during siege of Constantinople...what does that prove except that there was a practice of vassal retinues in feudal armies? "Doing even more than what the Ottomans asked?" Can you elaborate on that? 'Does the truth hurt?' No. For ordinary person and for experts It is a matter of history - their war, not ours, for some others it is a subject of nationalistic drool over 'glorious' past which was never glorious to begin with. However, one should give credit where credit is due - bravery of knights at Nicopolis and Angora, no matter what side they fought for, just like the dedication of vassal to his word of honour and to his obligation. Nothing less, nothing more.

    When Timur saw Bayezid, he laughed. Bayezid, offended by this laugh, told Timur that it was indecent to laugh at misfortune; to which Timur replied: “It is clear then that fate does not value power and possession of vast lands if it distributes them to cripples: to you, the crooked, and to me, the lame.”

      @Ashik Shaikh true the Soviet invasion made the war hopeless according to the then japanese premiere kantaro Suzuki but it is also not wise to underestimate the psychological blow of the bombing remember a short while later the news of the bombing of Nagasaki made it clear that short of an unconditional surrender there won't be a japan inbetween the fire bombings and this new weapon . The possibility of USSR intervening at the behest of them died on August 9th 1945 when they invaded Manchuria.

    when I was in school I read about the battle between Alexander the great and Raja Porus along the banks of river Jehlum. Alexanders's army faced elephants for the first time, probabbly, in the battle. But he ordered his men to wield double edged axes and cut elephants' knees and trunks. this ultimately lead to alexanders victory. Would love your take on this.

    It is said in Ottoman war sources that (almost) no soldier fought, except for Serbs. I wish Turks and Serbs, two nations that dislike each other these days, knew about this war. If the Tatars had not betrayed, it could have been a much more enjoyable war.

      @Dejan/Дејан Kojić/Којић Maybe something should make us sympathetic. And that is the status of Serbia compared to other neighboring countries. Unlike them, Serbs kept their land, their laws and system in a whole. The others lost their lands and though their populations stayed there, they were under direct Ottoman rule, obeying their laws and fitting in their system. For that matter, maybe even more significant is what happened after the Battle of Ankara, meaning the Ottoman civil war. Both Serbs and Turks should be remembered that the key role in a key battle between Mehmed's and Musa's forces had Serbian cavalry again. After that victory, the new sultan Mehmed promised that he would not interfere with Serbia while he rules, out of gratitude for help against his brother. And he kept that promise, which allowed Serbia to thrive. That was a golden age for medieval Serbia, we should keep that in mind.

Though timur is brutal but his heir Sultan Shahrukh Mirza ruled peacefully until his death in 1447 and reconstructed most city destroyed by his father ushering new era of timurid renaissance which somehow rivalling Italian renaissance..
