    Default Seljuk Appreciation Thread

    Since we have an Ottoman dynasty appreciation thread, the Seljuks who were their predecessors also deserve their own.
    Thread about
    - the Great Seljuk Empire
    - the Seljuks of Rum (Turkey)
    - Turcoman principalities dependent on the Seljuks (Danishmends, Artukids etc...)

    Here we go:

    Seljuk Heavy Cavalry
    "Three thousand of those who were called Agulani were said to be present, and they were afraid neither of swords, lances, arrows, nor any kind of arms, because they and their horses were covered with armor everywhere." was the commentary of Peter Tudebode, a priest of Poitou, France, who had born witness to the terrible presence of the Agulani Horsemen in the Seljuk armies at the siege of Antioch in the First Crusade.

    High reputation and respect earned from even people who were their enemies and who travelled to the Orient to fight them.
    Western Crusaders expressed their admiration, fascination after encountering and fighting them; going as far as pretending to be from the same racial stock as Turks and lamenting that Turks weren't Christians.



    The Two Cities: Medieval Europe 1050–1320, Malcolm Barber, page 456





    Encountering Islam on the First Crusade, Nicholas Morton, page 118







    *Gesta Francorum Et Aliorum Hierosolimitanorum
    (Deeds of the Franks and other Jerusalem Pilgrims), earliest account of the First Crusade from May 1095 to 12 Aug. 1099, by an eyewitness participant. Most important historical source for the First Crusade.

    I guess the Seljuqs re-used late Sassanid Persian armor for their cavalry as I can see a striking resemblance
