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: https://youtu.be/IUlp9U2p5_c and this one covers the rise of the Mughals: https://youtu.be/ycv4gDXbm7s
The reason the Chinese expedition failed was that it did not cross into Georgia first.
Thank you host telling people of the world about me))
ottoman jannisary: im so StRonger
Turkic-Mongol : Hold My Kımız 😆
Didnt Timur mock Bayezid for being (less turkish) then Timur?
Unstoppable word created after Taimur the conquerer.
The mongols ended with aurangzeb
Timur was the Freezer of middle age
"When he finally reached Turkey, Timur allegedly promised not to shed blood if the town of Sivas surrendered. Trusting his word, they did. It’s said he had 3,000 of the townspeople buried alive, and Timur maintained that he had kept his promise. After all, there was no blood.
Near Ankara, Bayezid met Timur’s army on 20 July 1402 for a dramatic showdown. Timur was a shrewd tactician, so he circumvented Bayezid and attacked his army from behind. After a short battle, the sultan was captured and dragged back to Samarkand kicking and screaming. There, he was allegedly subjected to a variety of imaginative humiliations — from Timur using him as a footstool to being put on display in a golden cage."
Georgia be like : Am I a joke to you?
Timur: Spontaneously decimates Georgia
Georgia always catching strays. Lol
Serbian Prince was very close friend of The Sultan Bayezid, so it's not actually suprising that he insisted to leave the battlefield.
Actually Islamic countries & their leaders were conquered by Moghuls
Qari Teimor was an Uzbek-Persian man who cleansed Islamic world from Moghuls & zeal less conquered leaders who failed to defeat Moghuls
Khawarazm Shahi kingdom was Uzbek-Persian kingdom
Teimor was from remaining descendants of Khawarazm Shah family who concealed his origine up to his death
He had no relationship with Moghuls
He had Persian-Uzbek mixed race
Khawarazm Shahi Teimor cleansed India from Moghuls
Before Moghuls India was an Ariaie-Hindu Islamic-Hindo mix country that was occupied conquered & ruined by Moghuls
Teimor had completed knowledge of politics & history
He was Khawarazm Shahi
Moghuls had been neutralised by remaining members of Khawarazm Shah family
As far as no one else could defeat them in the battles
Teimor & his people (Sofis & Wali Allah guys) segregated Moghuls kingdom politically
Ottoman got the opportunity to build his kingdom
People who defeated Moghuls were Khawarazm Shahi people
India is blessed by being the homeland of Khawarazm Shahis now
Teimor mémorised and could read Quran from A to Z and from Z to A
He had complet knowledge of History Philosophy etc
He was nurtured to become the king who adjusts the mistake of King Khawarazm Shah
He was endorsed by all Uzbeks & Persians
As far as Khawarazm Shah was the king of Persia
Timur a giant @$$hole, but his descendents kinda made up for some of his destruction he left behind.
Timur: Im Bored imma raid Georgia
It's insane to think that basically, a single guy (with a mighty army, but you get the idea) destroyed the brightest cities of his time and probably destroyed the demography and economy of Eurasia for like, 50 years. Everything he ever tried, he succeeded in. This guy had no fear, no mercy, no forgiveness. He would just do as he pleased.
21:19 map inaccuracy: by the time Shaybanids captured the Transoxiana (c. 1500), they were repelled from Syr-Daria and never controlled the Jetysu, with both regions being already controlled by Qasim Khan of Kazakhs
Funny how the turks settled in anatolia and where the ones who now had to fend off a tribal invader.
Bayezid did not commit suicide, she died of the disease that was her problem before the war.
Serbian Knights vs Indian Elephants , wow
I’m rooting for Timur
Timur : "welp im bored, gonna attack georgia" 😂😂
Ottoman empire be like soon Constantinople Soon..
The content of your video is good but the commentary is TERRIBLE.
The tinny, nasal voice and the awful pronunciation of the names of places and people are jarring to say the least.
The video is ' unwatchable' for this reason.
YOU'LL MAKE A VIDEO ON MY SOON ENOUGH!
This probably postponed the Fall of Constantinople.

the mongol sacking of baghdad in 1258 was the deadliest battle in history.
Its amazing how many details survive from this time.
The Ottoman tactics that was very effective against coalition of Crusaders in Nicopolis was largely ineffective against Timur. As Timur sense this thanks to his network of spies, depriving of water resources as the main strength of the Ottoman army was done and the entire ottoman soldiers went weaken thus the opportunity for Timur awaits to annihilating the ottoman army plus they capture Bayazid I.
Kinda sad seeing the tiny speck on the map being the Eastern Roman Empire.
SERBS > Whole ottoman army
