Tamerlane (8 April 1336 - 18 February 1405), originally known as Timur (meaning as much as "iron" in the extinct Chatagai language) founded the Timurid Empire and the Timurid dynasty. He conquered parts of Western, South and Central Asia. He was a controversial figure - for example, he claimed not to be a "man of blood" or an agressor, while his troops sacked the city of Aleppo. The Gur-e-Amir or Guri Amir in Samarkand, Uzbekistan serves as his mausoleum.
