Astrahan - Астрахань

Guillaume de Rubruk, who passed through the Volga delta in 1254, mentions the existence on the western bank of the Itilia river of the village, which served as winter bet for the son of Batu, Sartak.

The first mention of Haji-Tarhan is found in the notes of the Arab traveler Ibn Battuta, in 1333. In the 13th-14th centuries, Haji-Tarkhan was a major trade hub of the Golden Horde with Transcaucasia, Venice and Genoa.
In 1395, Timur took the city without a fight, plundered, set it on fire and destroyed it.
The city was rebuilt and with the formation of the Astrakhan Khanate in 1459 became its capital.

In the first half of the 16th century, Astrakhan became the subject of controversy between Turkey, the Crimean Khanate, the Nogai Horde and Moscow.
Ivan the Terrible captured the city in 1554 and 1556. In 1559, the fortress was moved by the Russians to a new place "on an island on a high bank with a castle inside the city, surrounded by an earthen rampart and wooden walls." Astrakhan became a military outpost for the Moscow Kingdom and trade "gates" to Asia. By decree of Peter I of November 22, 1717, the Astrakhan province was formed. In 1897, according to the census data, 112 880 people lived in the city, in 1900, 122 thousand.

Гильом де Рубрук, который проезжал через дельту Волги в 1254 году, упоминает о существовании на западном берегу реки Итилии посёлка, который служил зимней ставкой сыну Бату, Сартаку.

Первое упоминание Хаджи-Тархана в встречается в записках арабского путешественника Ибн Баттуты, в 1333 году. В XIII—XIV веках Хаджи-Тархан был крупным узлом торговли Золотой Орды с Закавказьем, Венецией и Генуей.
В 1395 года Тимур взял город без боя, разграбил, поджёг и разрушил его.
Город был вновь отстроен и с образованием Астраханского ханства в 1459 году стал его столицей.

В первой половине XVI века Астрахань стала предметом споров между Турцией, Крымским ханством, Ногайской Ордой и Москвой.
Иван Грозный захватывал город в 1554 и 1556 годах. В 1559 году, крепость была перенесена русскими на новое место «на острове, на высоком берегу с замком внутри города, обнесённым земляным валом и деревянными стенами». Астрахань стала для Московского царства военным форпостом и торговыми «воротами» в Азию. Указом Петра I от 22 ноября 1717 года была образована Астраханская губерния. В 1897 году по данным переписи в городе жили 112 880 человек, в 1900, 122 тысячи.
