The Mongols considered the Cumans to have submitted to their authority, but the Cumans fled westward and sought asylum within the Kingdom of Hungary. After King Béla IV of Hungary rejected Batu Khan's ultimatum to surrender the Cumans, Subutai began planning the Mongol invasion of Europe. Batu and Subutai were to lead two armies to attack Hungary itself, while a third under Baidar, Orda Khan and Kadan would attack Poland as a diversion to occupy northern European forces which might come to Hungary's aid.
Europe has and will continue to do the right thing as long as they remember who they are and where they come from
Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Thanks for the fine execution of this subject.
PS, do you know why the knight's shield is still on his back? Bad luck?
the point is, did these warriors ever actually meet?
i mean teutonic and mongol
...'tis but a scratch.
Duke Henry II (the Pious) of Silesia died during the battle.
Enough with the bits of history. This is a Fantastic piece of Art. Even if I usually must laugh about the helmet decorations of the teutonic knights. But you made it nice and small. More authentic then other people draw them. I doubt that the great Mass of Knights was wearing such decorations on their helmets in battle.
Great quality in the details.
Now this is no criticism of you work but when I look at this, I think "tis but a scratch."
