In 1400, the Mongol warlord Timur Lenk had succeeded in rousing the local kingdoms that had been conquered by the Turks to join him in his attack on Beyazid. In the fateful Battle of Ankara, on July 20, 1402, Beyazid was captured by Timur. Some contemporary reports claimed that Timur kept Beyezid chained in a cage as a trophy. Likewise, there are many stories about Beyazid's captivity, including one that describes how Timur used him as a footstool. However, these accounts are thought to be false, as writers from Timur's court reported that Beyezid was treated well, and that Timur mourned his death. Likewise, Timur's own history with other rulers demonstrated that he was true to his word when he later claimed to have aimed at re-establishing Beyezid on the Ottoman throne. One year later, Beyazid died — some accounts claim that he committed suicide.
