 Battle of Legnica - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Battle of Legnica (Polish: Bitwa pod Legnicą), also known as the Battle of Liegnitz (German: Schlacht von Liegnitz) or Battle of Wahlstatt (German: Schlacht bei Wahlstatt) was a battle which took place at Legnickie Pole (Wahlstatt) near the city of Legnica (Liegnitz) in Silesia on April 9, 1241.
However, the battle is now seen as a crushing defeat for the allied forces; the Mongols had no intentions at the time to extend the campaign westward, while their retreat was because of the death of Ögedei Khan, the Khagan (Grand Khan), not because of suffering excessive casualties.
According to Chambers' description of the battle, the Silesian cavalry initiated combat with the vanguard (mangudai) of the Mongol army.
