Tatar Corridor

The Mongol invasion in 1241 meant for Hungary what the Hun invasions and later the Hungarian attacks had meant for Western Europe. "God protect us from the Hungarian arrows" this was the prayer in Western monasteries for over two generations. The Tartar invasion proved almost fatal; Hungary was only saved by the unexpected withdrawal of the Mongolian hosts lead by khan Batu.
