    Was Tamerlane a Turk or a Mongol??

    Tamerlane did not speak mongol natively, if I am not mistaken (I think he spoke Turkic and Persian) He did however marry in to the Chingissids. How much is it a stretch to call Tamerlane a mongol? How about a turko-mongol??

    Pashtuns got 'Khan' title from Turk Sultans of Delhi , not Mongols

    1- Some people assume that when Mongols devastated Afghanistan in 13th century ¸ Pashtuns must have borrowed from them at that occasion. Why would Mongol conquerors bestow their royal title to them?. Also People should keep in mind that Mongols devastated central and northern Afghanistan...

    The definition of a Turk

    My question is simply, what makes one person a Turk, and another person, not-a-Turk? Is the word 'Turk' used in a similar spirit as the word 'Celt', implying someone speaking a Turkish language? I've seen people debate whether various early medieval groups (Huns, etc.) were 'Turkish', and...

    The terms Persian, Iranian, Turk, Azeri, etc.

I have recently become interested in the history of Greater Iran, but the ethno-linguistic demographics and multi-layered identities that developed over history confuse me (and this is coming from an Indian). This is what I understand...
