The Dregovichians were a tribal federation of Slavs living along the Pripiat River and in the more northerly regions of the right bank of the Dnieper. It is known only that in early times they had their own principality whose chief city was Turov. The Drevlians were a tribe of Slavs between the 6th and the 10th century, which inhabited the territories of Polesia and Right-bank Ukraine, west of the eastern Polans and along the lower reaches of the rivers Teteriv, Uzh, Ubort, and Stviga. To the west, the Drevlians' territories reached the Sluch River. To the north, the Drevlians' neighbors were the Dregovichs. Their name may be rendered "the dwellers in the forest".

Under the leadership of Bumin Qaghan (d. 552) and his sons, the Ashina succeeded the Rouran Khaganate as the main power in the Mongolian Plateau and established a stronger empire, which rapidly expanded to rule huge territories in Central Asia. This khaganate exercised considerable control over the lucrative Silk Road trade for significant periods. The origins of the first Türk Khanate trace back to 546, when Bumin Qaghan made a preemptive strike against the Uyghur and Tiele groups planning a revolt against their overlords, the Rouran Khanate. Having excelled both in battle and diplomacy, Bumin declared himself Illig Khagan of the new khanate at Otukan, but died a year later. His son, Muqan Qaghan, defeated the Hephthalite Empire, Khitan and Kyrgyz. The appearance of the Avars in the West been interpreted as a nomadic faction fleeing the westward expansion of the Gokturks The first dynasty collapsed in 581, initiating a series of political conflicts and civil wars which fragmented the khanate in Eastern and Western actions. The Turkic Khanate split in two after the death of the fourth ruler, Taspar Qaghan, around 584 thus entering a period of civil war. A century later, a second, renewed, Turkic Khaganate emerged in 682. They revolted against the Tang Dynasty Chinese domination and, over the following decades, steadily gained control of the steppes. By 705, they had expanded as far south as Samarkand and threatened Arab control of Transoxiana. The Gokturks clashed with the Umayyad Califate in a series of battles ( ) but the Arabs emerged as victors. The second Khaganate lasted until 744, when it was overthrown by the Uyghurs, themselves a Turkic group.
10 Troop Notes Gokturk Contemporary depictions show lamellar-armoured cavalry with bow, sword, slung shield, and some show lance and/or horse barding in addition. It is now concluded that only the richest would have a substantial proportion of armoured horses and that it is even debateable whether armoured cavalry formed in solid bodies. They are not known to have used "shower-shooting".

Avar Unskilled 0 4,6 Short Spear - Expert Javelin 6 The Avars were a confederation of heterogeneous people consisting of Rouran, Hephthalites, and Turkic-Oghuric races who migrated to the region of the Pontic Grass Steppe. As the Gokturk Empire expanded westwards, the Khagan Bayan I led a group of Avars and Bulgars out of their reach, eventually settling around 568 in what used to be the Roman province of Pannonia. They conquered the Kutrigur and Utigur remnants of Attila's Huns, the Gepids and many of the Southern Slavs, incorporating them into their army and then used them to lead the attack. After their failed attack on Constantinople in 626, the Avars lost face and were deserted by many of their subjects. The Bulgars revolted in 631, but some became allied again from 675 until eastern Avaria was attacked by Krum's Bulgarian empire in 805. Troop Notes Maurikios says that unlike other nomads they concern themselves with military organisation, and this makes them more powerful in pitched battles and "they prefer battles fought at long range, ambushes, encircling their adversaries, simulated retreats and sudden returns, and wedge-shaped formations". He also says that they wore armour and most were double-armed with lance and bow, the horses of the most important also being frontally armoured. The Avars lived in fortified earthworks. Their armies consisted mainly of subject levies with the Avars themselves a minority group.

They were defeated by the Khazars around 675, some moving up the Volga river, the bulk fleeing to the Danube basin where they drove the Avars westward and founded an empire that rivalled the Byzantines. Troop Notes The Bulgars were probably equipped in a simiar fashion to the Avars but using shorter spears rather than the lance. Early Bulgar

It then became a part of the state of Great Moravia. On the collapse of the Moravian empire a native monarchy arose. They secured the kingdom by entering into a semi-vassal state with the East Frankish kingdom. In 995 it was seized by Poland but was secured for the Holy Roman Empire in 1004 when Jaromír of Bohemia was granted fief of the Kingdom of Bohemia by Emperor King Henry II.

The Khazars were a semi-nomadic Turkic people, who created what for its duration was the most powerful polity to emerge from the breakup of the western Turkish steppe empire, known as the Khazar Khanate or Khazaria. Astride a major artery of commerce between northern Europe and southwestern Asia, Khazaria became one of the foremost trading emporia of the medieval world, commanding the western marches of the Silk Road and playing a key commercial role as a crossroad between China, the Middle East and Kievan Rus.

From 862 they launched a series of raids on the East Frankish Empire, Great Moravia and Bulgaria. In the 890s they moved into the Carpathian basin (modern Hungary and Romania). For the next sixty years they continued to raid central Europe. Their defeat by the Germans at Lechfeld in 955 ended the threat to Western Europe. In 1000 their High Prince, Vajk, accepted Christianity and was recognised as Stephen I, king of Hungary.

During the reign of Khan Krum ( ), the Empire doubled its size, including new lands in Macedonia and Serbia. He also successfully repelled the invading force of the Byzantines, as well defeated the Pannonian Avars where additionally extended the Empire size. The greatest expansion of the Empire and prosperity during the time of Simeon I ( ) is considered as the Bulgarian Golden Age. However, from the time of Peter I ( ) their power declined. The Hungarians, Kievan Rus' Slavs, as well Pechenegs and Cumans held many raids into their territory, and so weakened were eventually conquered in 1018 by the Byzantine Empire.

The alliance was dropped around 900. Byzantium began to encourage the Alans to attack Khazaria and weaken its hold on Crimea and the Caucasus, while seeking to obtain an entente with the rising Rus' power to the north, which it aspired to convert to Christianity. Between 965 and 969, the Kievan Rus' ruler Sviatoslav I of Kiev conquered the capital Atiland destroyed the Khazar state. Troop Notes The Khaganate maintained a standing "Royal Army" of full time paid cavalry. Most armed with bow, but some with lance "like the Muslims". Khazar nobles themselves carried bows, but are reported to have preferred to use their lances. The Royal Army was supplemented for major campaigns with levies from the Khazars' numerous subject tribes. Arsiyah was the name used for a group of Muslim mercenaries in the service of the Khazar Khaganate. According to Muslim sources, the Arsiyah formed the core of the Khazar army and were extremely influential in Khazar politics, but these assertions may be designed to exaggerate the importance of the Muslim community in Khazaria. The Arsiyah did often act independently of their government. Part of the treaty binding them to Khazar service guaranteed that they would not be used to fight other Muslims.

For more than two centuries they fought the Rus. In the late 10th and early 11th centuries they were defeated by the Rus and forced by other tribes towards the Danube. They weredefeated in 1091 at the Battle of Levounion by a combined Byzantine and Cuman army and destroyed by the Byzantines at Berrhoia in The remnants were absorbed by the Hungarians and Bulgars. Troop Notes Pecheneg The Pechenegs were typical horse archers, their main tactic being to concentrate on encirclement and picking off isolated bodies. The unusual feature of their armies was the use of large numbers of wagons which with high wooden sides pierced for archery.
