Editor says, in reality Ögedei Khan died, the armies were recalled and after the battles of Mohi and Liegnitz, the Mongols never again seriously looked westward for conquest, only raiding for loot, and even then they were not able to commit the bulk of their forces, which had to guard against other Mongol. It has been widely suggested that even if Ögedei Khan had lived the invasion would have ultimately failed. In authoring this post, we have repurposed content from Wikipedia.
