Caption: Mongol Campaigns in Eastern Europe

This map shows military action from 1206 to 1405 and various battle sites in eastern Europe.
The Mongol advance into Europe did not last long.
Some speculate it was because of the death of Great Khan Ogodei, while others speculate that the pastureland was not good enough to stay.
