Maybe because since the west had dealt with steppe niggers before (the Huns), the Mongols would be no different.
>>
>>6263953
Depends on what the tribute was.

Mongols forced Korea to pay a heavy tribute in virgin Korean girls and Korean boy eunuchs, gold, gyrfalcons and other valuables during the entire Yuan dynasty and Goryeo because Mongols through Korean women were the most beautiful women and gave out Korean women to their soldiers, officials and followers as rewards.

They did eventually, but they had no reason to suspect that the Mongols would be as competent as they were. Previous steppe invasions like the Huns, Avars, Magyars, and Cumans had successful raids and battles, but they also lost many battles or failed to capitalize on successes. The Huns were defeated in gaul, and Attila died prematurely in pannonia, the Magyars were defeated by Otto l and christianized and settled. The Avars were defeated by the Frankish empire and actually allowed their Slavic subjects to populate the entire Balkans. The Cumans raided the Kievan Rus, but they lost at least half as many battles as they won. These steppe nomads were successful for a time, but it was nothing compared to the success of the Mongols, and the other steppe nomads hadn't shown the same willingness to slaughter civilians as the Mongols did.
>>
>>6269262
Why are you coping so hard? Bulgars and Magyars literally raped and slaughtered countless Italian/French cities and towns. Avars conquered Austria and Bohemia then held it for some 300 years until finally Charlemagne put an end to them raping Germans so hard. Back to /pol retard, whites arent invincible lol

Kingdom of Dali and Qocho retatined their own leadership in the Mongol empire. The Mongols forced Korea to pay Korean women like Empress Gi as tribute to the Mongols. It's even in Goryeosa (History of Goryeo), a Korean source. They raped Korean women. Song China held off for decades until 1279.

Empire's Twilight: Northeast Asia Under the Mongols, p. 52-53

>Late in the thirteenth century, Qubilai and other Mongol aristocrats began to demand women from elite Koryo families as wives and consorts. Despite initial efforts to avoid these demands, the Korean government eventually responded by establishing government bureaus to organize and control the flow of Koryo women to the Mongol empire.

>What had begun as the seizure of women as war booty evolved into a complex system of formal tribute between the ruling houses of Koryo and the Mongol Empire. Yuan envoys regularly traveled to Koryo to secure women on behalf of the emperor, who often redistributed them as gifts to leading ministers. Yuan envoys and Yuan officials stationed in Koryo also requested Koryo brides for themselves.

>The number of Koryo women in Daidu increased steadily over the late thirteenth and first half of the fourteenth centuries. Nearly 1,500 Koryo tribute women are noted in official Yuan and Koryo court annals. The actual number of women was certainly much higher since elite Koryo women nearly always traveled with their own maids and servants. Lesser-known women were not deemed sufficienty significant to merit mention in official records. Many Koreans married their womenfolk to members of the Yuan elite as a way to secure official posts and advance family interests.

>Mongolian, Muslim, and Uyghur elites appreciated Koryo beauties, and the acquisition of Korean concubines became something of a fad. As one fourteenth-century Chinese observer familiar with the court in Daidu observed:
>>
>>6279114
>>6280382

>Among prominent officials and influential people in the capital city, acquisition of a Koryo woman has become de rigueur for one to be considered a leading light. The Koryo women are amiable and yielding; they excel in serving [their lords] to such a degree that they often win [his] favor [away from other women]. Since the Zhizheng reign period, most of the palace stewards and attendants in the imperial palace are Koryo women. For this reason, everywhere clothes, shoes, hats, and utensils all follow the Korean style.

For examples of Korean wives and consorts of high-ranking Mongol and Chinese officials, see Kim Sang-gi, Sinp'yon Koryo sidaesa, p. 575. extensive discussion, see Xi Lei, Yuandai Gaoli gongnü zhidu yanjiu, pp. 136-58. For intermarriage between semuren men (including those of Turkic, Uyghur, and Indian descent) and Korean women, see Ma Juan, "Yuandai semu Gaoli tonghun juli."

Korean sources like Goryeosa 高麗史 and Dongguk Tonggam 東國通鑑 mentioned the Mongols distributing Korean women as wives to their underlings, Kuiblai Khan gave the daughter of Korean official Chae Ingyu first to a Tibetan named Sangha and then to a Muslim Abu Ali from southern India.


Kublai Khan was at the beginning of the Yuan dynasty and he handed out Korean women to that Indian Muslim exile 孛哈里. Kublai gave Korean women to Southern Song defectors at the beginning of the Yuan.

Also from Empire's Twilight: Northeast Asia Under the Mongols, p. 52

>The first waves of Koryo women into the Mongol empire arrived as captives seized during the bloody fighting of the mid-thirteenth century. These women were variously used as slaves, married to recently surrendered Southern Song soldiers, or distributed as war booty to Mongol warriors.

Marriage as Political Strategy and Cultural Expression: Mongolian Royal Marriages from World Empire to Yuan Dynasty, p. 194

>It is true that in the Yuan dynasty, Korean women were famed for their gentleness and loveliness, and many officials took Korean women as wives, concubines, ormaidservants, and it is also true that the Yuan court also issued many imperial edicts tot he Koryŏ court, ordering them to present young women to the Yuan imperial court. Many Korean officials also presented women to the Yuan of their own accord. This traffic in women happened every year according to the Korean history Yu Kye.

Korean Buddhist Nuns and Laywomen: Hidden Histories, Enduring Vitality, p. 9

>Chapter 4, another chapter on Koryŏ women, titled “Koryŏ Ladies and the Encouragement of Buddhism in Yuan China,” discusses a different group of Koryŏ women—expatriates in thirteenth-century Yuan China. The conclusion of hostilities with the Mongols in 1259 and the foundation of the Yuan dynasty brought many changes to the Koryŏ political and societal landscape for the next one hundred years. The conditions of peace were harsh.Among other concessions, Koryŏ had to pay tribute to the Yuan court in the form of young women. These court ladies often became wives and concubines of high Yuan court officials and Mongol princes.

Eurasian Influences on Yuan China, p. 210

>The Koreans reciprocated by dispatching young virgins to the Khan's harems. The Ming, for a time, continued the latter practice, accepting Korean women as concubines and apparently requesting eunuchs from Korea.

>a say in the political affairs of the Mongol Empire. The Yuan court continuously took women from Korea, and many Korean officials also presented women to the Yuan officials on their own initiative for political gains, so a large number of Korean women became prominent in the Yuan court. Korean women were famed for their excellent service skills, thus many Mongol officials took Korean women as wives, concubines, or maidservants.45 Therefore, the total number of Korean women in Yuan China would be very large.

These are all from Korean, Yuan and western sources.

"During the end of the Yuan Dynasty, both royalty and nobles liked Korean women
Because Korean women were popular because they were soft and good people"
So, looking around, there were a lot of Korean women and wore Korean shoes, clothes, and hats"

채송년' s daughter married a Tibetan named 桑哥 and a Muslim from India named 孛哈里. This Hui Muslim wrote an article on Korean women marrying Central Asian Muslim and non-Muslim men. The Yuan had four armies, a Mongol army, the Central Asian Tammachi army, the northern Chinese Han army, and the southern Chinese newly submitted (xinfu) army. Central Asian Muslim men married Korean women.

And the Mongols offered the same vassalage deal to every country if they surrendered. The Idiqut Kingdom of Qocho surrendered immediately to the Mongols and became their mostly highly ranked automous vassal. The Kingdom of Dali in Yunnan province, ruled by the Han Chinese Duan kings surrendered and defected and became an autonomous vassal kingdom inside the Yuan dynasty. The Mongols offered the same deal to the Tanguts in the Western Xia and even the Jin after harshly punishing the Jin. The Tanguts in Western Xia at first agreed to become autonomous vassals and then reneged on the deal, double crossing the Mongols. Genghis Khan then destroyed the Tangut Western Xia kingdom forever. The Jin dynasty attempted to evade Mongol surveillance by transferring their capital from Zhongdu to Kaifeng after agreeing to be an automous vassal, causing a furious Genghis Khan to order the Jin to be destroyed.

The Mongols offered the same deal to the Han Chinese Southern Song dynasty to become an autonomous vassal kingdom. The Southern Song dynasty refused and the ministers ordered it's people to fight to the end. It took the Yuan dynasty from 1235–79 to end the Southern Song dynasty. And when the third last Southern Song Emperor Gong surrendered the capital Hangzhou, Kublai Khan married him off into the Mongol royal family.

The Mongols told the Korean King that he was ranked lowest of all his autonomous internal vassals, far below the highly ranked Idiqut Kingdom of Qocho. The Mongol Yuan only demanded Korea provide Korean virgin girls to become concubines like Empress Gi and Korean boys to become eunuchs like Pak Bulhwa. The Mongols did not demand this of any of it's other internalt automous vassals or subjects, Qocho did not provide virgins and eunuchs, the Kingdom of Dali did not provide virgins and eunuchs, and the Mongols banned Han Chinese women from entering the Yuan harem while Korean women like Empress Gi were taken into the Yuan harem.
>>
>>6280574

The Mongol elite and Muslim elite in Yuan China in Beijing and all over northern China all had Korean concubines, wives and maidservants in their households.

The Mongols in other parts of the Mongol Empire offered the same autonomous vassalage deal to the Armenian Kingdom of Cilicia, Kingdom of Georgia and the Seljuqs after defeating the Seljuqs in battle. Only Koreans thing they have special treatment when they were ranked as the lowest autonomous vassal and forced to provide virgins and eunuchs to the Mongols.

The Kingdom of Dali in Yunnan, founded by the Han Chinese Duan family from Wuwei in Gansu, allowed to retain their rulership, autonomy and Kingdom under the Mongol Yuan dynasty after King Duan Xingzhi defected to the Mongols. The Duan Kings lasted until the Ming dynasty defeated the Kingdom of Dali and deported the last King Duan Gong and his sons to Nanjing.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dali_Kingdom

The original post wasn't even about this, but about Korea paying Korean girls and Korean boy eunuchs as tribute to the Mongols which they did and which is documented in Korean, Yuan and western sources.

The Mongol Yuan Emperor Biligtü Khan Ayushiridara was the son of a Korean woman, Empress Gi and Mongol Yuan Emperor Toghon Temür. Her Korean eunuch Bak Bulhwa helped her attain power.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empress_Gi

None of the Yuan Emperors or high ranking noble Mongols of the Yuan had a single Han Chinese concubine named as their wives, their concubines are all listed as Mongols, Turkic and Korean in the historic records of Yuan and Korea. Find just one.

Not really
The Mongols literally recalled everyone from the Middle East, Europe & India back to crush the Chinese.
90+% Mongol forces were swallowed up in total war in China. Even the Khan (Mongke) at the time died while besieging a notorious Chinese fort.
Mongols had to use every trick in the book and endure horrendous casualties in a grindfest to break Chinese forts and field armies.
The war lasted 40+ fucking years and was relentless.

During those forty years, the battles and skirmishes were never-ending. Heroes and soldiers died on both sides, along with untold millions.
The Mongols even had to go around the entire overland border of Song China, conquering Jin, Goryeo Korea, Tibet and Dali just to surround Song and attack from all directions.
Even then, the battles were bitter and Pyrrhic at best and the Mongols were pushed well beyond their limit by the entrenched Chinese forces and early gunpowder weapons.
They even made the battles that the Mongols fought in Europe, the Middle East and India look like a cakewalk.

And it would have ended in a stalemate had the main Chinese riverfleet commander not gone complete turncoat and gave control of the rivers to the Mongols.
In fact, the war was so long that the entire Song imperial court went bankrupt, just financing it.

>>6290003
Cont.
The war was horrifying and bitter to the Mongols.
Grindfest it was over the fortified Chinese cities and bastions while the Mongols swarmed the countryside
The counterweight trebuchet was introduced and the whole conflict became something that looked like the siege of Gondor,
except on a massive front with multiple cities cut off and under siege.

Thundercrash and incendiary bombs launched at defender and attacker alike.
Screaming heavy infantry men crashing against each other.
Mongol bowmen firing volley after volley while Song Crossbowmen returned fire.
The losses were immense but the prize was equally great.
And it was in this, the bloodiest war that Mankind had yet witnessed that the first true gun/cannon was born.
But it was too late to turn the tide.
>>
>>6290003
>>6290054
Mongol army in northern China was still over 50% Chinese infantry and officers and the Mongol Yuan army in southern China was still over 90% Chinese infantry and officers.

After the Song commander of besieged Xiangyang surrendered and defected, it was agreed to by the Mongols that the Song commander would be made governor of Xiangyang and everything would continue as normal despite the previous grinding years long siege. The city was not sacked. The same happened for most other cities in southern China including the capital Hangzhou.

Can you read? The post was about all steppe nomad invasions and Turks were obsessed with invading and conquering the Middle East for at least 1,400 years, not China. The Turks failed against the Sassanian Persians but the Turks won against the Arabs 1,000 years ago and it's been nonstop Turk invasion and conquest since then.

>>6288555
>what is the steppe nomads obsession with europe?

The reason the war for other regions were short is because the Mongols conquered the other regions like Khwarezm and Abbasid Iraq far more easily and walked all over them to Turks already ruling the Middle East. And they kept Mongols in the Ilkhanate and Golden Horde to administer them plus the Mongols sent Chinese defector officers and troops to fight in Central Asia against Khwarezm and in the Middle East against Alamut and Baghdad, and Khwarezm was before all of northern China fell.

The Mongols banned Chinese women from entering the Mongol Yuan imperial harem while they demanded Korea pay them tribute in Korean women and the Mongol Emperor had Korean women in his harem as did all the other Mongol elites in northern China. One Yuan Emperor was born to a Korean woman, Empress Gi while you can't find any Chinese women among the wives and concubines of the Mongol Yuan Emperors. Name just one. The Mongols even handed out Korean women to Chinese defectors from the Southern Song. They invaded Korea for the pussy. Bringing down the Southern Song was about prestige to them, not pussy.

Koreans were bragging about how Korean women were popular among the Mongols in China as wives and concubines >>6281284 which spread Korean women's clothes and fashion in China as the elite clothing while Chinese women's clothes and fashion were seen as low class and crude.

Steppe nomads were extremely obsessed with Europe. Crimean Tatar and Nogai steppe nomads raided Europe for centuries to harvest pussies either for themselves or to sell to the Ottomans from the 13th to 18th centuries. Some estimates say the Crimean Tatars and Nogais took millions of European slaves.

Eastern Europe is geographically Europe. If you thought that post was meant as an insult you're stupid. It's pointing out steppe nomads were obsessed with attacking the continent of Europe for the same reasons they would anywhere.

White slaves were more prized than others after all. They netted a higher price on the slave market for Turkish and Arab buyers. Some of the mothers of Ottoman Sultans were Polish girls taken in raids by Mongol-Tatars

Well how would you deal with them? The Mongol's strength was not only mounted archers on the battlefield, but the mobility of their army who could indefinetely harrass and bleed out settled societies.
