The story of Temudżyn capture of Europe is barely known.
I'll tell you a bit of what I know if you like to read.
It was the y. 1200 Big Mongol Empire - Wielka Orda was at the top of conquests.
Temudżyn decide to proceed again to the west.
Slavian tribes between river Ural, Wołga and Don has been at first contact eradicated.
Kchan knows well from China and traders that on west shore of Black Sea behind swamps on north are antique and rich lands.
Ruś was expecting final invasion. Batu - Kachan was ready. Orda was ready.
Slavian first battle ground of this invasion was Zaporoże (you may translate as "such a dam!" or "together as a dam!")
At Poroh on Dniepr river. Dniepr is a huge river. Porohy - rock formation on the river was a big obstacle for horse riders to trespass.
Kniazie didn't expect deception or trick - the battle in there mind should be lead on shallow porohach.
Orda played better than that. They force through Dniepr in the deepest and slowest part of the river, at night. Filled sheep skin pumped with the air as a balloon and attached to the horse and rider was a pontoon.
Kchan surprise was done well. Kchirowy Róg (Kchan's Horn) sounded over battlefield at emerald dawn.. And after the start the battle drums.
This battle is on the Shield now - The Coat of Arms of Zaporoże...
No one has been left alive.
Krzywy Róg's Coat pl.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Plik:Coat_of_Arms_of_Kryvyy_Rih.png&filetimestamp=20080514144752
express this same as Polish Coat of Podkarpacie - Emerald and Blood.
But its in reverse. But I will get to that and why.
The Capital City of Ukraine name Kijew means 'Sticks' - Kije in Polish.
Was such named, after defenders weapons held by woman's, kids and old man.., on straight Kchans order.
The Kijew Coat of Arms was set by the Order of the Knights Templar and Knights Hospitaller on the Campaign end to memorised Angels as the Only Soul Defenders. They Left The Name, Kijew.
The last big natural obstacle defending access to western country's was behind Batu - Kachan.
Temudżyn in person arrive!! With new Army.
Bathu - Kchan set up his troops between Dniestr and Prypeć river. He killed everybody between those two rivers.
Temudżyn decide to lead invasion by him self. His wish was to ask for that Always Blue Sky.
Hi set up a camp.
This place is called Lwów now.
Polish Henryk II Pobożny runs away, his hide was Legnica behind Odra river!
Kings and Knights from all over Europe was called at the one place...
Temudżyn ordered to cut the head of from coward Henryk II.
At that point the rest of regular Slavian troops was no match for Orda.
Hi sends just 10000 strong by the lid of Captain Ordu. 9 April 1241 Henryk was death.
Henryk II knew about the mobilisation of Christian Army by the lead of Fratres Militiae Templi, Pauperes Commilitones Christi Templique Salomonis.
His last words was "Gorze nam! Gorze!" - "It does burn us!"...
Temudżyn was dealing with reconnaissance of Poland. Has sent small troops all over through one(!) an undefeated gate to Poland. This Place is called Brama Przemyska.
From south of it is deep Oak Forest - the Bór - Sambór, at north Roztocze and swamps of Polesie and Wołyń.
Battles was lead all day and night by peasants all over. The end was always the death of them.
The secret meeting has taken place and was decided;
Setting up gathering point.
Sending the heaviest troops by Pogórze to the Gate.
Knights set up a field to battle if defence of the Gate is crossed.
Temudżyn will see a Cross of Lord on the Always Blue Sky.
Temudżyn moved out!
At The Gate was a Bear Force - foot troops. They did hold!
Temudżyn ordered his troops to throw them self in to the stream of River!
A Lord of Rivers for his Army. This is why the name of it is now the San River.
Captured told that the mobilisation of Orda was at the crescent Moon - on next river to come.
The Knights Templar didn't understand this precise.
The Council has taken place in Tyczyn.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tyczyn
Less than one week to come and kotlina San-do-miersk 'a at there grace.
Biggest battles has taken place right on the west river side. Tarnobrzeg ("darł na brzeg" - was fighting to take the riverside) and Przeworsk (gallop through wiorst - few miles)
There Coat of Arms is the same. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Podkarpackie_Voivodeship
But now they knew that Temudżyn is mad and waiting for revenge.
The good Star has start to shine.
The Grand Master had an idea.
The Secret Camp was not needed any more.
They let the prisoners escape from Rzeszów.
They have a week for preparations. Let the mad and defeated Temudżyn attack them!
East side plate is coming to Rzeszów having mountains on left and swamp river on right.
They dig Drabinianka side like a fortress. Living just a hand of Bear Force from the Gate to make a noise. Temudżyn was good man stronger.
South from Drabinianka is Biała - "The White". An a shadow of track leading to Tyczyn from plate and to good crossing to skip behind rivers swamps. On the west side of Tyczyn is Budziwój - the name in English is "Waking up Knights".Scouts was placed there. This is by the river side. On South from the crossing is a closing river valley, behind further more on South just mountains and deep forest.
The river valley plate at the West is closed sharply with canyons.
North - West from Rzeszów is sand field and swamps covered by forest.
Temudżyn didn't need even an hour to regroup after river crossing.
Kchan pointed at the plate 14 km long 5 km wide on west side of river.
At North is small hill now named Zwięczyca. Its come from the word Tower.
High, Grand Master was landscaping from there.
The main Bear Force was split between north with Grand Master and South in forest cutting the escape. Horses on left flank cutting access to escape by the river.
The name of the City at this plate is now Boguchwała (Glory in Haven!) And it was just The Red on Coat of Arms till recently...!!
Cut his way out on South.
The fighting took place up in the hills - Czu-dec, mountain Chełm, Twierdza.. Barycz, Blizne. (translate your self :)) )
After this defeat Golden Orda never attack Bramy Przemyśl again.
Rzeszów (Reich + polish -ów) becomes a City.
The rivers are keep there names.
Templars stayed. There Sign are to find all around Podkarpacie.
COA of Podkarpacie is reversed - The Knights decided what's gonna be and how!! :))
Poland after defeat and such victory disgraced itself.
Ukraine become no-man's land, long after King Władysław £okietek was banned and needed to ask Pope for mercy. Never fully Restored.
Till the King Kazimierz III Wielki Poland loses influence and territory.
