This small nomade tribe did not know till XX century how great a power they were once. Nor did Mongols know who was Great Ghengis Khan and how he has conquered Eurasia, Russia, China, the whole works. Back in 1879 Mr. Prejevalsky, colonel of Russian cavalry made two major discoveries Gobi Desert, i.e. in Mongolia:
for the first, a small wild undomesticated horse, for the second, a case of collective amnesia of the Mongols people who forgot their glorious past.
Actually, in old Russian language « horde » means army. Consequently, the Mongolian Horde was merely the ancient Russian army. According to the official version of history, Russia remained under the political and military yoke of the Mongols for many centuries on end.
To add injury to insult, German historians injected the myth of ‘Mongol’ invasion into Russia. Wild Mongols burned Kiev the capital, etc..etc to the ground. Russians gladly supported the yoke of Mongol Golden Horde for 200 years and German myth about it for further 500 years.
