Caption: Tamerlane (1336-1405), Turko-Mongol emperor. Also known as Timur, Tamerlane's people were descendents of the Mongols who had settled in Persian areas and become linguistically Turkic. Tamerlane conquered an area centred on modern-day Iran, establishing the Timurid Empire. This woodcut portrait is from the 1575 Basle edition of Elogia virorum bellica virtute illustrium (Praise of Men Illustrious for Courage in War) by the Italian historian and biographer Paolo Giovio (1483-1552).
