Description

The text on this page tells of how the Mongols conquered Syria and defeated the lords of the powerful Ismaili sect of Islam. In red are the names of Hulagu Khan and his brother Mongke Khan, Mongol overlords of the region. Also in red are the words “first” through “seventh,” after each of which the names of all the previous Ismaili lords until the last are listed. The long title in red begins the topic of the next section, which concerns arrangements for the Mongol invasion of Anatolia in present-day Turkey.
