Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Post-conquest Mongol subjugation was rather light - a tithe (10%) compares favorably to the modern taxation and costs of financial services. Monasteries were exempt.

How does the Mongol cultural impact compare with Byzantine's? The language of this diary implies a very dramatic Mongol influence.
