Week 14: Nomadic Challenges IDs

 

Hi!

 

 

• The Golden Horde was established in the west part of the Mongol empire.

• It was created in 1251-1480 when the Mongol empire fell.

• The land was going to be given to Jochi, the son of Genghis Khan, but Jochi died two years before Gengis, and so it was given to Ogodei Khan. However, Jochi’s son, Batu, lead an army to claim the lands. This army was called a Horde, and Golden was the directional word for west. Therefore, the Golden Horde stands for Western Army.
