Blue Horde

 

(in Turkic, Kök-ordu), a name, found in Russian sources of the 13th and 15th centuries, for the White Horde (Ak-ordu) and its lands. The Blue Horde included the lands of the Jochi Khanate’s left army group on the lower Syr Darya; the capital was the city of Sygnak. Unlike Russian sources, oriental sources use “Golden Horde” for the Blue Horde and the lands the Blue Horde retained after the White Horde emerged as a separate entity.
