Little Tartary

Little Tartary was a historical region in the northern areas by the Black Sea. It was under the suzerainty of the Crimean Khanate, inhabited by nomadic Tatars of the Lesser Nogai Horde from the 16th to the 18th century. Little Tartary was named in relation to (Great) Tartary, the areas of central and northern Asia inhabited by Turkic and Mongol peoples.

The Nogai Horde consisted of the Budjak, Yedisan, Canıbuyluk, Yedikul, Azov, and Kuban septs. After the annexation of the Khanate by the Russian Empire (1774-1792), the nomads were expelled and the region was settled by ethnic Slavs and Germans as New Russia. The area that was Little Tartary is currently part of Ukraine and Russia. However, there is some proof that nomadic Slavs inhabited the region before the arrival of some of the ancestors of modern Tatars in the 13th century. These people are known in history of Kievan Rus' as brodniki (literally - vagabonds or nomads). On the other hand, Turkic and Iranian tribes are known to have inhabited this region before Slavs, particularly Iranian peoples such as the Sarmatians, and Thracians such as the Cimmerians, from whom most Crimean Tatars (and arguably many "Slavic" southern Ukrainians) derive.
