Probably between 1363 and 1365, Timur received the life-altering wounds that would lead to him often being remembered as "Timur the Lame" or "Tamerlane." Today we look at the stories, science, and... curses... behind his lameness. Intro and outro music: "Fidayda" by Turku. Check them out at http://turkumusic.com/. Cover art created by Quintus Cassius.
