in 1258, the abbasid dynasty was invaded by the mongols under hulagu khan, the grandson of genghis khan. the caliph had been deluded by promises from his vizier that the mongols could be driven off by the women of baghdad throwing stones at them, and did not raise an army to defend the city from the largest mongol army ever assembled. instead he sent weak threats to hulagu, warning the mongols that they faced the wrath of god if they attacked baghdad.
hulagu’s forces besieged the city, and the caliph had to surrender, leading to a week-long massacre by the mongols, regarded as one of the most devastating events in the history of islam.
