Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There was ongoing imperial warfare of subjugation waged on border states all around the Empire, including in Europe. I did not mean to intimate otherwise.

However, invasions on the scale of the Mongol absorption of the Sung Empire, or the drive to Baghdad simply didn't occur in Europe, largely because they didn't see the profit in it.
