How did Amir Temur die?
On November 1404, 27, he went on a trip to China from Samarkand with 200 troops. However, Amir Temur's death in Otror (February 1405, 18) prevented the march on China. It is known that Amir Temur died in 1405 due to a severe cold. However, there are other reasons that accelerated the death of Amir Temur. According to Ibn Arabshah (written in 1436), as a result of a severe cold, Temur fell ill with ibrida (a disease that weakens the body due to cold), and he consumed khamr arag, which contained warming substances, aromas and berries, prepared by doctors for his taste. According to the historian, Khondamir, Amir Temur's death was accelerated by vodka prepared by doctors as medicine. Khondamir writes in his work "Habib us-siyar": "...the owner encouraged vodka on this basis, ordered to bring him ore, although it looked like water, it was like fire in terms of quality. His Highness Sahibqiron drank vodka for two days and nights, but did not eat at all. That's why there was a change in the client. The doctors considered this change to be a sign of evil. They gave him a couple of glasses again, his temperature calmed down a little, but it seems that the wine affected his body and nature, and his fever rose again. The owner's health has deteriorated. At that time, this drink was used only in medicine, and its intoxicating function was not mastered. Hafiz Abru, the historian of that time, also writes that Temur's disease worsened and vodka was consumed in large quantities. Although the news of Amir Temur's death was kept secret at first, soon this unpleasant news spread throughout the country. Amir Temur's body was brought to Samarkand and buried.
