This Could be a Game of Thrones Death

Amazing History

I’ve been talking about Game of Thrones and death in a few posts now and I feel this one should make it into the books/TV show somewhere

The Rus’ wanted to put a stop to the Mongolian Empire so set out for war, led by the Grand Duke of Kiev, Mstislav III. The first wave of fighting against the Mongols was instantly repelled by Genghis Khans son, Jochi. The rest of the Rus’ army held out for three days but were captured and killed.

So far, so normal. Mstislav III and his men were killed by suffocation as they were forced to lie on the ground, underneath board, while the Mongols sat on the boards and ate their dinner. A slow way die, under the weight of a Mongol army.
