Following in the footsteps of Alexander the Great and Genghis Khan, Tamerlane was the last and greatest conqueror the world has ever known. In the closing decades of the fourteenth century lie blazed through Asia at the head of a ferocious army, razing cities, torturing inhabitants and decapitating enemies and was feared throughout Asia, Africa and Europe. Yet despite his place in history, the detail of Tamerlane's life is scarcely known in the West. In this stunning portrait, Justin Marozzi travels across Central Asia to trace the extraordinary tale of this complex plan and the vast legacy lie has bequeathed. Legendary for the astonishing magnificence of his capital Samarkand, as well as his formidable prowess as a politician and military strategist, this is the compelling history of a man who aspired to rule the world.
