Random information on the term “HORDE”:

An orda (also orda, ordu, ordo, or ordon) or horde was a historical sociopolitical and military structure found on the Eurasian Steppe, usually associated with the Turkic people and Mongols. This entity can be seen as the regional equivalent of a clan or a tribe. Some successful ordas gave rise to khanates.

While the Slavic term ordo and the western term horde were in origin borrowings from the Turkic term ordo for “camp, headquarters”, the original term did not carry the meaning of a large khanate such as the Golden Horde. These structures were contemporarily referred to as ulus (“nation” or “tribe”).It was only in the Late Middle Ages that the Slavic usage of orda was borrowed back into the Turkic languages.[clarification needed]

Etymologically, the word “orda” comes from the Turkic “ordu” which could mean camp, palace, tent, “seat of power”[1] or “royal court”.[2][3]

Within the Liao Empire of the Khitans, the word ordo was used to refer to a nobleman’s personal entourage or court, which included servants, retainers, and bodyguards. Emperors, empresses, and high ranking princes all had ordos of their own, which they were free to manage in practically any way they chose.
