About 560 AD a local Tibetan chieftain, Gnam-ri slon mtshan, revolted against his Zan-Zun overlords and established the Yarlung dynasty.
By about 630 his successor Sron btsan sgampo had unified the Tibetan clans and founded an empire which over the next two centuries
fought expansionist wars. After 841 this broke up, but successor states survived and continued to maintain armies, often fighting each other.
The last Yarlung ruler was Rgyal-sras of Tsong-kha, a principality on the border of the Hsi-Hsia state, who died in 1065 Arabs, Chinese and
Bengalis were all at various times associated with the Tihetan empire, but are given Tibetan allies in their own lists rather than included
here: Tibetan armies in India and west of the Parnirs seem to have been small, and their Ferghanan allies are best regarded as Turks rather
than Arabs Combined Tibetan-Chinese armies were usually under Chinese command. The Abbasid troops represent hose captured by the
T'ang in 801 thought to have been either taken prisoner by the Tibetans in an otherwise unknown western campaign and incorporated into
the amy, or failed rebels or dissidents who had voluntarily joined it They were under Tibetan command. Nepalese and Nan-chao allies
cannot be used with each other, nor ~ith any other allies apart from Ch'iang. Minima markcd ' apply only if any troops of that origin other
than up to 8 elements of nomad LIA are used. The exact nature ofNepalese troops is conjectural, but they are described as cavalry. They
could be a large majority ofa Tibetan-Nepalese force. Tibetan caval~ are described in the T'ang Annals as armed with very long lance, both
man and horse completely mailed except for the eyes, and invulnerable to swords and stron& bows There is no suggestion anywhere that
they charged at the gallop. The same T'ang source describes them as fighting dismounted and arrayed in ranks. Kn (x) can therefore always
dismount; though bow-armed they favoured close combat, so dismount as Sp (S) Tibetans were skilled makers of siege equipment
