  1. a European-Mongol alliance. i wonder what that would have been like… of course the Black Death would still kill both empires.

  2. I must admit I wasn't aware how Europeans wanted to preach Christianity to the Chinese and started so long back, yet today not many practice the religion. There are more Muslims in India than Christians, maybe because Europeans themselves think the theology is suspect.

  3. Hello Buddy, i have a article in spanish about an unbelievable battle, how do I contact you?, it would be amazing if you do a video about it.

  4. I wish you could make one video like this with iban battutta, he is considered the greatest traveler.of the muslim world

  5. I don't know why people want to rewrote history to chinese side or for Mongols?
    Rabban Sauma itself was a Uyghur traveller he served Nestorian community in Iran.
    He was not mongol, where you heard mongol with name Rabban?
    Mongols were a stupid people, who loved to fight, they never were sciences or travellers.
    Mongol script was also invested by Uyghurs.
