Muslim-Byzantine_troop_movement_(635-636).jpg
Map 635 AD Muslim-Byzantine troop movement561 viewsMuslim-Byzantine troop movement from September 635 to just before the event of the Battle of Yarmouk.

In 629, the Islamic prophet Muhammad had recently succeeded in unifying all of the nomadic tribes of the Arabian Peninsula. Those tribes had previously been too divided to pose a serious military threat to the Byzantines or the Persians. Now unified and animated by their new conversion to Islam, they comprised one of the most powerful states in the region. The first conflict between the Byzantines and Muslims was the Battle of Mu'tah in September 629. A small Muslim skirmishing force attacked the province of Arabia but were repulsed. Because the engagement was a Byzantine victory, there was no apparent reason to make changes to the military configuration of the region. Also, once the severity of the Muslim threat was realized, the Byzantines had little preceding battlefield experience with the Arabs, and even less with zealous soldiers united by a prophet. Even the Strategicon, a manual of war praised for the variety of enemies it covers, does not mention warfare against Arabs at any length. The following year the Muslims launched raids into the Arabah south of Lake Tiberias, taking Al Karak. Other raids penetrated into the Negev reaching as far as Gaza. The Battle of Yarmouk in 636 resulted in a crushing defeat for the larger Byzantine army; within three years, the Levant had been lost again. By the time of Heraclius' death in Constantinople, on February 11, 641, most of Egypt had fallen as well.

Anatolia1200.png
The Sultanate of Rm and surrounding states, c. 1200.369 viewsThe Sultanate of Rum seceded from the Seljuk Empire in 1077, with capitals first at Iznik and then at Konya. The name Rm derives from the Arabic name for Romans, ar-Rūm, itself a loan from Greek Pωμαῖοι, referring to the Greek people that had been ruled by the Romans (the Byzantines). They reached the height of power during the late 12th and early 13th century, when it succeeded in taking Byzantine ports on the Mediterranean and Black Sea. Trade from Iran and Central Asia was developed using caravans, and strong trade ties with the Genoese formed during this period. The increased wealth allowed the sultanate to absorb other Turkish states in eastern Anatolia (Danishmends, Mengujekids, Saltukids, Artuqids). They eventually succumbed to the Mongol invasion in 1243 (Battle of Kse Dağ), and became vassals of the Ilkhanate. Their power disintegrated during the second half of the 13th century. The last Seljuq sultans was murdered in 1308. The dissolution of the Seljuq state left behind small states, among them that of the Ottoman dynasty, which eventually conquered and reunited Anatolia to become the Ottoman Empire.Sep 02, 2019

Map - Seljuks of Rum29 viewsMap of the Anatolian Seljuk Sultanate in 1243.

The Seljuks were a Central Asian nomadic group of Sunni Muslims. The last Seljuk sultan died in battle in 1194 when the Great Seljuks were defeated by the Mongols. A breakaway group, the Seljuks of Rum, settled in Anatolia. They too eventually succumbed to the continuing Mongol expansion of the 12th and 13th centuries.

Map - Greek and Latin states in southern Greece, c. 1210197 viewsPolitical map of southern Greece in c. 1210, after the establishment of the Crusader states following the Fourth Crusade.

After Constantinople was conquered during the Fourth Crusade in 1204, Greece was divided among the Crusaders. The Latin Empire held Constantinople and Thrace, while Greece itself was divided into the Kingdom of Thessalonica, the Principality of Achaea, and the Duchy of Athens. The Venetians controlled the Duchy of the Archipelago in the Aegean, and the Despotate of Epirus was established as one of the three Byzantine Greek successor states. Michael VIII restored the empire in 1261, having also regained the Kingdom of Thessalonica. By his death in 1282, Michael had taken back the Aegean islands, Thessaly, Epirus, and most of Achaea, including the Crusader fortress of Mystras, which became the seat of a Byzantine despotate. However, Athens and the northern Peloponnese remained in Crusader hands. With the exception of the Ionian Islands and some isolated forts which remained in Venetian hands until the turn of the 19th century, the final end of the Frankokratia in the Greek lands came with the Ottoman conquest, chiefly in the 14th to 16th centuries.
