    Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan were recently blessed with baby boy Taimur, following which they hit headlines with the controversy of their baby's name being synonymous to the name of Timur, historically known as Tamerlane. After suppressing the Muzaffarid dynasty Tamerlane Fars springTamerlane entered present-day Iraq, received the submission of Baghdad, whose Jalayirid ruler, Sultan Ahmad, had fled at his approach, continued northward into eastern Turkey and the Caucasus area, defeated Toktamish in a battle on the Terek Apriland advanced up the Don to capture the Russian town of Yelets, on the border between the Russian principalities and the territory of the Golden Horde.

Ahmad was unpopular but got some dangerous help from Qara Yusuf of the Kara Koyunlu ; he fled again inthis time to the Ottomans.
