 Cumans - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Cumans, also known as Polovtsy in Russian (Половцы, from old Slavic for pale yellowish) were a nomadic West Turkic tribe living on the north of the Black Sea along the Volga.
Cumans having settled in Hungary had their own self-government there, and their name (kun) is still preserved in the county names Bács-Kiskun and Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok, and town names as (eg.) Kiskunhalas, Kiskunszentmiklós as well.
The Cumans from the current Russia joined the khanate of the Golden Horde.

 Stephen V of Hungary - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Stephen's father, attempting to bind the powerful but pagan Cumans tribe more closely to the dynasty, arranged for Stephen's marriage, as a youth (about 1255), to Elizabeth, the daughter of the Cuman chieftain (named Koteny or Kuthens).
Adversaries of Stephen, especially Ottokar II of Bohemia, believed that Stephen was too great a friend of the mighty Cumans (who could field 16,000 men) to be a true Catholic.
In 1262 Stephen convinced his father Bela to give him twenty-nine counties as a reward of assistance in the war against Bohemia; hence Hungary was virtually divided into two kingdoms.

Other scholars argue that the name originate from the Sarmatian tribe Iazyges, mentioned by Ovid, too: "Ipse vides onerata ferox ut ducata Iasyx/ Per media Istri plaustra bubulcus aquas" and "Jazyges et Colchi Metereaque turba Getaque/ Danubii mediis vix prohibentur aquis".
Some believe the town received its German name (perhaps from the Cuman jagers, or bowmen) in the late 14th century.

 Karakalpak - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It is not clear whether the Karakalpaks of today, a Turkic-speaking people (their dialect is of the same subgroup of Turkish as the Cuman language), are connected to the "Karakalpaks" (in Russian, " Cherniye Klobuki ") of the Middle Ages, a group of Turkic tribes who served as border guards for various Russian principalities.
The word derives for the Turkic for "Black Hat", a reference to the historic national dress of this tribe.
They may have broken off from the Kazakh Horde sometime in the 1600's.
