The Battle of Ankara (Angora, Ancora) fought between the army of the Ottoman Sultan "Bayezid I" (the Thunderbolt) and the Turco-Mongol leader Tamerlane near Ankara on July 20, 1402. The Ottomans lost the Battle, as a result, the Sultan was taken prisoner. Tamerlane knew the medicine of the arrogant Sultan. He made him to be shackled in fetters and chains of gold, and so to be shut-up in a small iron cage made like a grate, in such sort as that he might on every side be seen; and so carried him up and down as bird in a cage as he passed through Asia; to be of his own people scorned and derided. The invincible Thunderbolt, went from becoming the greatest conqueror of his time to be Tamerlane’s "pet”.
