  Golden Horde - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Horde's supreme ruler was the khan, chosen by the kurultai among Batu Khan's descendants.
In the early 14th century, the capital was moved considerably upstream to Sarai Berqe, which became one of the largest cities of the medieval world, with a population estimated by the 2004 Britannica at 600,000.
The Horde's military clout peaked during the reign of Uzbeg (1312-41), whose army exceeded 300,000 warriors.

 Allman Brothers Band and Blues Traveler - H.O.R.D.E. 1994 (Concert Review)
This year's H.O.R.D.E event was headlined by Blues Traveler and the Allman Brothers Band and included a total of 9 outstanding groups.
He also praised Big Head Todd who were by far the most boring of the bands in attendance.
H.O.R.D.E., on the other hand, exists solely for the sake of the music, and it brings to light the songs of many bands that have far less exposure of those on Lollapalooza.

 H.O.R.D.E. Festival
The H.O.R.D.E. Festival began in 1992 as a solution to the dilemma of five east-coast bands that sought to avoid the club circuit in the summertime when other larger bands were playing to sold-out amphitheaters and doing well.
Included in this section are the contents of several web pages chronicling the latest-breaking news from H.O.R.D.E.s past, as well as anecdotal histories and pictures generously supplied by friends and vendors who saw the festival grow from eight dates in 1992 to over forty in 1998, its last year of existence.
H.O.R.D.E. initially was a way for Blues Traveler to play outside in the summer.

 «THE TATAR GAZETTE» - THE TATARS IN MORDOVIA
After the second war with Timur in 1391-96 the Golden Horde was completely ruined, the ulus centre Mukhshi-Naruchad (the Narovchat Principality in Russian chronicles) was destroyed, the inhabitants were taken to the Middle Asia.
The allies of the Temnikov Principality were the Crimean Khanate and Moscowian Principalty, the rivals were Ryazan Principality, Kazan Khanate and the Big Horde (the main successor of the Golden Horde).
In that situation the Temnikov Princes had to chose whether to join the strengthening and expanding Moscow and to keep everything except their sovereignty, or to become the enemy of Moscow, which meant that the Principality and the most of its population would be exterminated.

 «THE TATAR GAZETTE»
No one would explain to an ordinary reader that the Golden Horde was ruined not by the Kulikovo battle but by the two wars with the invincible Central Asian emir Timur (1385-91, 1395-96) when all the Golden Horde cities, about 110 of which have been discovered, were razed to the ground.
No one would write for the wide range of readers that the Temnikov Principality, which emerged after the desintegration of the Golden Horde, was always on the side of Moscow and Krym against the Big Horde and the Kazan Khanate.
No one would write that the end of the Big Horde came not after the “opposition on the Ugra River” in 1485 but after the utter defeat of the Big Horde by the Krym Tatar troops in 1502.

 Almaty: History
Basing on data contained in written sources, coins and other archeological finds, we can say with confidence that the modern city of Almaty emerged under the name of Almatu as early as in the 10- 11 th centuries, and the area of Almaty had been inhabited by nomad tribes in the Bronze Age.
...In mid-summer 1853 a military detachment headed by Major M. Peremyshlsky, a police-officer of the Big Horde, left Kopal for the ancient crossing place Oguz- Utkul leading across the capricious Asian river III to the mountain jailyaus of Turghen and the syrts of the Central and Inner Tien Shan.
The major was instructed to conduct diplomatic and economic negotiations with the peoples that lived there seeking to enlist their cooperation in trade and industry and to persuade them, on the whole, to enter into an alliance with Russia.

The Dark Horde is a household that deserves a special mention, if for no other reason than that it's the largest household in the SCA.

And while there are some people in the Horde I don't personally care for, the same can be said of the SCA as a whole and I wouldn't judge either the Horde or the Society by its worst examples.

 Janis Joplin
Janis' horde of Big Brother backing guitarists were derivative, clumsy, and over-loud, and while Janis was a better singer than any other woman in the 60s rock scene - except perhaps Joni Mitchell - that's not saying much, because said scene was relentlessly sexist.
The Big Brother half admittedly does include little-heard cuts that you might find refreshing, like the powerful "Down On Me" and trippy "All Is Loneliness" (both from the group's rare debut record), and the early 1970 blues "Ego Rock," a semi-improvised duet with Nick Gravenites (otherwise unavailable).
It's almost entirely dominated by 1968 Big Brother cuts, with one track each featuring Full Tilt; the Kozmic Blues Band ("Raise Your Hand," standard but professional Stax-Volt fare); and, most strangely, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band (the slick, brassy studio cut "One Night Stand," produced by Todd Rundgren).
