He has kindly written this short historical commentary on the formation of the Kazakh Khanate after the Qipchaq (Kipchak) steppe in southeastern Kazakhstan was reorganized by the Mongol Batu Khan, grandson of Ghengis Khan.
Although the Qipchaq steppe was occasionally united by various nomadic confederations prior to the Mongols' arrival, it was the Mongols who welded the vast steppe into an unprecedented degree of unity.
Following a steppe tradition of land allotment, the Qipchaq steppe was reorganized by Batu Khan (d.

 TREASURES FROM THE GOLDEN HORDE: Artefacts from the Mongol Empire   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The leader of the Khanate of Qipchaq, Berke (1257-67), for instance, who ruled over the lands of the southern Russian steppe from the Crimea to the Aral Sea, formed an alliance with the Mamluks of Egypt, and, in 1262, declared hostilities against the Ilkhans of Persia.
The Khanate of Qipchaq, or Juchi Ulus (literally, "the state of Juchi", eldest son of Chinggis Khan), is better known in the West as the Golden Horde.
The majority of its population at the time of the conquest was Qipchaq Turk (known in Russian as Polovtsi), and the newly constituted state was an amalgam of Turkic, Mongolian and other ethnic and cultural influences (Bulgar, Khazar and Finno-Ugric).

Qipchaq was, however, a traitor, for he [secretly] advised the Sultan to quickly commence battle since Ghazan's horses were very fatigued.
The Sultan accepted this promise and in turn promised Qipchaq that if he remained true to his word, he would give him in perpetuity the lordship of Damascus, a part of his treasure, and his sister in marriage.
After a short while Qipchaq caused all the territories to rebel, for he knew that other Tartars would be unable to come and help, since their horses could not go on expeditions in that heat.

 The Turco-Mongol Invasions III, Medieval Armenian History, Turkish History, Turkey
The emir of Ganjak permitted the Qipchaqs to settle in the environs of the city, intending to use them against Georgian incursions.
The Qipchaqs continued looting and raiding different parts of the Caucasus until 1223 when Iwane, in alliance with Azarbaijanis, Lezghians and other peoples finally defeated the Qipchaqs, killing or selling them into slavery (171).
The Qipchaq raids, though less serious than the invasions which preceded and succeeded them, nonetheless contributed to the continued unsettled state of affairs initiated by the Mongols, depleted the Armeno-Georgian military of some choice leaders, and undoubtedly weakened the army's morale.

"So the Qipchaqs arose and went to the residents of the city of Ganjak where they were joyously received, since the people there had been placed in great straits by the Georgian army, which ruined their lands and enslaved man and beast.
The Qipchaqs brought the honorable men [of the captives] and sold them for some clothing or food.

My answer has been that the ecclesiastical and secular establishments were affected by two different outside influences -Byzantium and the Qipchaq Khanate, respectively.
The traditions, practices, doctrines, and values of the Byzantine Empire drew on those of the Christian Roman Empire (the largest empire in the West in the ancient world), developed them, and transmitted them through the Church to Muscovy.

So many non-nobles ( uaznoni) were thus elevated to noble status ( aznauroba) that in the 11th century Georgian sources a new term, aghzeebulni ("the raised") appeared to designate this growing body (11).
In 1155 king David V tried to check the Orbeleans' power by removing them from the amirspasalar ate and giving that office to the Orbeleans' principal Georgian rivals, the Abulet'isjes, to whom other important duties had been given (14).

In the eighth month, the Qipchaq commander El Temür, who was stationed in Dadu, launched a coup and called for installation of Khayishan 's son.

Despite establishing overlordship over the christian slavs to the north, the Mongols and Turks (who comprised the majority of the local nomads) remained largely and officially pagan until the conversion of Ozbeg Khan (ruled 1313-41) to Islam (several previous Khans had converted, but it was regarded as a personal affair only).
Moreover, the Qipchaq Tatars might be inclined to establish it's own fleet in the Caspian; which, along with a more stable government and quite possibly artillery, could prove enough to keep Timur from leveling Sarai at the end of the fourteenth century.
By 1400, the Qipchaq Khanate, if all goes well, would remain direct rulers of the bulk of Russia outside of Novgorod's dominions as well as the steppe from the Dniester to the Ural and perhaps beyond.

 Question about Mamluks
It was a standard practice of sultans of Qipchaq descent to recruit or purchase mamluks of their Qipchaq ethnicity.
The preponderance of the Qipchaq ethnicity during the late Ayyubid and Bahri Maluk periods may account for the choice of Qipchaq, one of many regional lingua francas, as the lingua franca of the Mamluk court throughout Mamluk rule, including the second period when the Circassian element was at the helm.
The Qipchaqs seem to be the people referred to by the Byzantines as Cumans, and by the Russians as Polovtsi.

 H-Net Review: Russell E. Martin on Muscovy and the Mongols: Cross-Cultural Influences on the ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
He seeks to place Muscovy in the broader, more general narrative of world history and to identify what components of Muscovite culture, society and politics appear to have been borrowed from abroad, and the ways and extent to which Muscovites made these borrowings their own.
But in terms of the political structures and the military, Muscovy was drenched in Mongol influences, largely because of the political dependency of Muscovy on the Qipchaq Khanate.
The title might suggest that the work is devoted only to the relationship between Muscovy and the Mongols and their successors on the Steppe and along the Volga.

 Chronology of Islamic Egypt
The Mamluks are divided into an earlier group called the Bahri Mamluks, and a later group, the Burgi Mamluks; the Bahri Mamluks were originally soldiers based on Roda Island by Cairo, on the Nile (Bahr), while the Burgi Mamluks were associated with the Citadel (al-Burj).
The Bahri Mamluks derived largely from Qipchaq tribesmen in what is now southern Russia, with Mongols and Kurds; the Burgi Mamluks were mainly Circassians, from the Caucasus mountains.
There was a tendency for sons of the family, after two or three generations, to move into professions other than the military; the military stock was continually replaced with new troops of slave status from those areas.

In this innovative and challenging study, Donald Ostrowski adds fresh and important insights to a pivotally important yet poorly understood subject--Mongol influence on Muscovy.
Ostrowski considers here the outside origins and influences, as well as the indigenous origins and development, and shows that during the early period of Muscovy the dominant outside influences came through both Byzantium and the Qipchaq Khanate with its capital at Sarai.
In considering these outside influences, Ostrowski has set out to study Muscovy as an integral and important part of world history.

By the 13th century, the Mamluks, originally Qipchaq slaves-guards of Ayyubids, started calling their newly-founded sultanate as Mamalik-i Turki or Dawlat-it Turkiyye.

The third group, the Qipchaq, also has retained its tribal affiliations and has subdivisions such as the Qunqurt, the Manghut, and the Kurama.
The assimilation of the Tajiks into the Uzbek fold is a clear example.
They are also in the process of absorbing the Turki and the Qipchaq by gradually divesting them of their tribal ways and ushering them into the Sart culture.

The first category is the "Sart", settled population (predominantly Tajik), followed by the two tribal groupings; Turki (Turkmen) and Qipchaq (the authentic Uzbek).
The imperial conquest of the 15th centuries replaced the dominant *Turkmen* culture with Qipchaq.
Nevertheless the Tajik population of Uzbekistan (except in Bukhara-Samarkand and the southeast) merely give their ethnicity as Uzbek because they are bilingual and in the throe of assimilation.

The Russians called them "Polovetsy", the Hungarians "Kun-ok", the Arabs and Persians "Qipchaq" and "Qangli", the Mongols "Kimchag", the Germans sometimes "Falven", and most of the rest of Europe knew them as the "Cumans".
One can still find remnants of these proud people in the Middle East and Eastern Europe, where people continue to have Kipchak tribal names and speak modern versions of the Kipchak tongue, but this too is in jeapordy.

He points out that among the Yaghma, Tukhsi, Qipchaq, Oghuz and other dialects that he elsewhere refers to as outside the realm of pure Turkic, the dh in Chigil speech is changed to y, so "when the Türks say qadhin " these others say qayin (DLT 26, TTD 43).
This contradiction over whether the Chigil or the Yaghma and Tukhsi dialects are the most correct indicates that the sounds are not as important as the political and cultural boundaries that he uses to distinguish ethnicity.
He states that the vowels used in past tense endings by the Oghuz, Qipchaq, Arghu and Känchäk are all incorrect, not the same as those used by Türks (DLT 504, TTD 3:190).
