Constantinople Quot

Batats refuses, but left without an ally, he must seek a new one. And in December 1237 Batu attacked first Russian city of Ryazan. What do they say the chronicles of the attack? The Novgorod Chronicle: “pridosha inoplemennitsi, glagolemii Tatariv on Ryazanskuyu land, mnozhstvo beschisla, aky pruzi, and first-past and Stasa of Nuzl and vzyasha th, and Stasa stanom that. And ottol poslasha own ambassadors, his wife and two charoditsyu husband with her, Rk knyazem ryazanskym, prosyache a nih acres in everything: in lyudeh and knyazeh Bb, and Bb konih, vsyakom in the tenth. “Please ambassadors who came to ask for a tithe” of princes “is logical only if the Tartars were asked for military assistance, but does not fit into the concept of” tribute “, which was adopted was to take the money, furs, fabrics, etc. As said the Russian princes, according to the same record? “Prince is Ryazanstii Gurgen Ingvorov brat, Oleg, Roman Ingorovich and Muromsky / l.121ob. / Pronskyi and not vpustyache gradom Rk, im on anti vyhasha Voronazh.
