Timur had conquered [[Georgia (country)|Georgia]] and [[Azerbaijan]] in 1390, expanding his empire to the borders of the Ottoman Empire. The two powers soon came into direct conflict. Bayezid demanded tribute from one of the [[Anatolian Beyliks]] who had pledged loyalty to Timur and threatened to invade. Timur interpreted this action as an insult to himself and in 1400 sacked the Ottoman city of Sebaste (modern [[Sivas, Turkey|Sivas]]). Beyazid was stung into furious action and when Timur invaded [[Anatolia]] from the east, Bayezid summoned his forces and confronted Timur's forces near Ankara. The conflict, overall, was the culmination of years of insulting letters exchanged between Timur and Bayezid.
The battle is significant in [[:Category:History of the Ottoman Empire|Ottoman history]] as being the only time a Sultan has been captured in person.<ref>Marozzi, Justin, ''The Art of War: Great Commanders of the Ancient and Medieval World'', Roberts, Andrew (ed.).
