Gradually, Tamerlane’s squad became a strong army, where residents of the growing number of conquered cities joined. His ability to foresee the development military and political situations and the success in all he did allowed Tamerlane to create one of the most powerful empires in the history of the East. The book describes in detail the conquest of Persia, in which Tamerlane skillfully took advantage of the betrayal of the Persian king’s younger brother who craved for power and against whom people subsequently rebelled.
In the chapter on the conquered monarchies and lands, in addition to general information about them in the Czech interpretation, you can learn about places under eternal snow and ice behind Imaum Mountain, whose inhabitants lived underground in dome-shaped houses covered with snow and ice and having a hole in the ceiling, similar to a chimney, through which light got into the dwelling. In describing Tamerlane’s extensive empire Macer aims to give readers the idea about it and to show its diversity.
