Like the Muslims, the Mongols also had a strong law about catching and eating fish.
Only poor people were allowed to eat fish or if there is no other source of food is available.
Fish is considered a sacred animal to the Mongols due to its purity and Tibetan influence.
Therefore, do not let the Mongols catch fish in AOE.
Research Tengri and Buddha religions.
Moreover, Golden Horde in the 15-16th century turns into Muslim Khanates.
Therefore, they cannot hunt boars in the Imperial age.
MONGOLIAN CUSTOMS AND CULTURAL HERITAGE
PRECAUTIONS: THE TRADITION OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
Prohibitions related to rivers: Use well-cleaned buckets to draw water from springs and springs. It is strictly forbidden to pour blood or milk into rivers and streams, to wash dirty things, to defecate nearby, to kill fish and insects that live in the water. At the top of the water source, it is strictly forbidden to demolish the ger, to pollute and turbid the water, to wash the body with spring water, and to take water from the well with a soot pot.
It is in the Secret History of the Mongols.
Genghis Khan grew up eating fish because his family was abandoned and left with nothing but a “ger”. The catching of a fish explained that he grew up in poverty and due to that they were allowed to catch fish.
However, when there were plant roots available at specific seasons they were not allowed to catch fish. Instead need to eat the plant root.
“Envoy to Mongolia” records that Mongolian food includes everything that can be eaten, such as dogs, wolves, foxes, and horses. even xxxxxx
“The Travels of Marco Polo” contains: They eat all kinds of meat. Horses, dogs, mice, voles,
Because they have seen poor people of China and would think they are also Mongols.
Those sources sometimes are hard to prove because those people have little knowledge about foreign culture and were not good at distinguishing Asians from the Chinese to the Mongols etc.
This is why historians try to ignore cultural aspects of empires that are described by the foreigners because they have little knowledge and would compare it to what they know and create confusion.
For example, Marco Polo confused “Marmot” an animal with “Rat”. and many more.
The Mongol Empire has a vast territory, including Central Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and various ethnic groups. You say they don’t eat fish? ? ?If you have documentation, please take it out，
In the “Montar Records”. “Envoy to Mongolia”. “Journey to the East of Lubluqi”. The Travels of Marco Polo. There are special records that Mongolia eats any meat, including human flesh
Because Marco Polo arrived in Mongolian Empire that was located in conquered Chinese territory he was too confused about who are the Mongols and the Chinese. And simply looking at both, he wrote his records.
In the game do you see foreigners in the Mongol civ? I think you got the answer.
The devs just went for the specific people. This is why it is big, like the Muslims.
And again, the late Mongols in the game are Golden Horde and they say that word too.
So I’ve seen this topic randomly pop out on the forum main page and I find it quite funny the OP made a post hoping that no one would spend 2 min doing a google search about it. The “worst” thing I could find is that the Mongols prefer meat and dairy producst over fish, else they can eat it just fine.
