Events Edit

  • Baghdad is attacked by the Mongols. Baha al-Din Zuhayr (who is either an Ahl-i-Batin or Taftâni scholar) tries to mitigate the damage, but his approach is too subtle and he is gutted and hung.[1][2] The city is taken by the Mongols, which further depletes the Astral Reaches.[3] This event marks the end of the Arabic Golden Age.
  • Pope Alexander IV explicitly forbids the Papal Inquisition from investigating charges of witchcraft.[4]
  • Florence expels the Ghibellines, pledging itself to support the papacy.[5]
