The Seljuks of Rum (and the Ottomans)


The Seljuk tribe was one of the many Turkic peoples who had been migrating progressively westward from the Central Asian steppes for thousands of years.

One of the two main branches that achieved fame throughout their history were the Anatolian Seljuks , who ruled from Konya, the other being the Great Seljuks, ruling over most of what is known today as Iran, Iraq and Syria.

Though of Turkic origin, Seljuks of Rum embraced Persian art, architecture, and literature and used Persian as a language of administration. Byzantine influence was also significant, since Greek aristocracy remained part of the Seljuk nobility, and the local Greek and Armenian population was still significant.
The Seljuks signed trade agreements with the Genoese and the Venetians, several sultans spent time during their youth at the Byzantine courts in Constantinople and marriages with Byzantine princesses were not a rarity. Thus they were in constant contact with both the christian West as well as the traditions of the Arabs and Persians. The Sultanate flourished.

But hear, divine Sultan, the voices of those who had to flee before the horror of another steppe peoples, the Mongols, a far greater threat than anything you have encountered before. Beware, as their customs in warfare are that of your own armies.

Will you swear allegiance to the Mongols and become their vassal or rely on your trusted ghulam warriors and drive the Hordes out of your land.

The jacket was full of mail and small plates inside, similar to a brigandine.

Why the mixed naming policy? Some are in English, some in Modern Turkish, some in Ottoman Turkish. If you are not naming the French units in French, can you just call: Yeni Sari's: Janissaries. I don't see the appeal in putting names for any faction in a language people cannot understand. Not to mention that lack of standardization leaves a lot of confusion.

Just use what is commonly used in academia, or in English.

100% agree! All unit names should be understandable without a dictionary! It totally puts me off from playing a mod, when these random language names are used. Infantry is infantry, no need to call it infantry in three dozen languages.

Looks absolutely amazing, can't fully pronounce most of the names but it still looks amazing.
I like to play as the eastern factions;however, their limited roster stopped me of doing so
hopefully now it's a bit balanced.

Looking amazing! I recently started following this mod. It looks amazing because of my love for Attila and Medieval (my two favorite Total War games), and I can't wait to see the this totally awesome combination! I'm just curious what your plans are for a grand campaign. If, and when it will come out, mostly. I'm really excited, but grand campaigns are my favorite part of Total War, so I hope you have plans for making one in the near future. Thanks!

Yeniçeri's wear heavy armor when they went to war, This is the mess dress what you show us and Delis are not the only cavalry, They're fighting on feet with no armor with big weapon like old Germanic soldiers. However Turkish fight style is the archery, The enemy came to us when the fight was beginning, my almost all soldier kill with a bow like elves style in lotr so we killed easily enemy who had soldiers more than us. Finally, Archers had too much range more than europe. Archery World record's 846m who had a ottoman soldier to this day. The History's beautiful when its true, please be true for us :(

Hi guys and 1212 team,

It would be great to see this ceremony in the game which a Turkish prince joining to Janissaries community. An epic scence. (maybe a short scence to show that prince is old enough to be heir and get his sword)

Youtu.be

In addition, janissaries long caps are not for only fashion, the material also protects their neck and head. Hope their armour look more like Protectores Domestici in eastern rome.

Units are so cool and so accurate with history. Just make horse-archers more effectively but with lesser armor. Most of the Seljuk Empire's army power was strong horse-archers.They need to be more significant.
