In the comments to articles and videos about Tartary, we are sometimes asked to pay attention to the fact that Tartary is a non-Russian state. Well, let's deal with genetics. Let's look at the ruling dynasties of the Tatar-Scythians, at the research of DNA genealogy, in particular, the so-called "Aryan" haplogroup R1a.
If we open the “Historiography of the Slavic Kingdom” by Mavro Orbini of 1601, we will find lines about the conquest of Eurasia and Africa by the Slavs and we will see the almost complete identity of the Slavs with the Sarmatians and Scythians. It is obvious that modern historical science does not know something … or does not say anything. Where and when did the Slavs conquer half the world?
Another question: if the Tatars were mainly carriers of Turkic or Mongolian genetics, then probably it should have somehow manifested itself in the territories conquered by the Tatars? Let's check.
Let's open the diagram “Genealogy of ancient emperors of Tartaria, descendants of Genghis Khan” from the book “Historical Atlas” by Nicholas Gudeville in 1721. Before us is a diagram of the descendants of Genghis Khan, whom the authors of the document divided into 4 branches.
The first branch owned Kipchak / Kapchak, that is, the south of modern Ukraine and Moldova, as well as the territories of the Caucasus and present-day Tatarstan. In the Russian version, this is the Polovtsian steppe. The second branch of the descendants of Genghis Khan ruled the lands of TransoXan (or Zagatay) and Turkestan, the ancestral home of the Turks. The third branch belonged to the Golden Horde, the country of Mogolov (that is, India) and Northern China. Representatives of the fourth branch of the descendants of Chingiz ruled in the lands of Khorasan, Persia, India. But only the descendants of Genghis Khan are mentioned here. Later we will see that the area of distribution of the Tatars' power was much wider.
Little Tartary in Europe and the Turks
Let's start with Europe. On maps up to the middle of the 18th century, one can see the possessions of the Tatars in Eastern Europe. In the historical remark to the genealogical scheme just shown, it is said that the Europeans have no idea in what exact period the Tatars conquered these lands.
For example, on the maps of the alleged XIV century under the great Khan Usbek, these lands really belong to him - the flags of the Scythian Tatars fly over the cities of this region.
The Kumans, or Kipchaks, are the Polovtsians. Either a derivative from “people of the fields”, “steppes”, or from “sex” - from Church Slavonic “straw” - that is, these are people with yellow hair like straw. “Kapchak” means “lucky” from the Turkic language. And who are the Turks or Turks, Turkomans?
