Chapter Summary

Studies on the internal history of Timur's empire are not as yet far advanced. This holds true in particular with regard to the core of his state, Mavrannakhar. This chapter emphasizes that Timur and his companions were aware of the weakness of the Central Asian states and resolved to exploit it, which they did. It concentrates first and foremost on Mavrannakhar, which was the centre of the empire and formed the initial base from which to embark on further conquests. The chapter reviews the condition of the towns and their population in Timur's state. It presents an outline of social life in the state that Timur founded. The feudal nature of that empire is unquestionable. It is indicated by the rural organization, comparable in point of fact with those existing in medieval Europe.

Keywords: economic life; social life; Timur's empire
