Timur ( Timur, Chagatai: ; 18 February 1405), historically known as Tamerlane ( Timur(-e) Lang, "Timur the Lame"), was a Turko-Mongol ruler of Barlas lineage. From a base in Transoxania, he led military campaigns across West, South and Central Asia and emerged as the most powerful ruler in the Muslim world after defeating the Mamluks of Egypt and Syria, the emerging Ottoman Empire and the declining Sultanate of Delhi. From these conquests he founded the Timurid Empire, although it fragmented shortly after his death. He is considered the last of the great nomadic conquerors of the Eurasian steppe, and his empire set the stage for rise of the more structured and lasting gunpowder empires in the 1500s and 1600s.
