Urus Khan was the eighth Khan of the White Horde and a disputed Khan of the Blue Horde; he was a direct descendant of Genghis Khan. Urus himself was the direct ancestor of the khans of the Kazakh Khanate.


Urus Khan is a cavalry archer hero in Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition.

He appears in Amir of Transoxiana, the first scenario of the Tamerlane campaign, where his nephew Tokhtamysh intends to kill him and asks for help from Tamerlane himself. He also appears in other scenarios and campaigns as renamed hero (like 'Hranislav' in A Most Unlikely Man - the first scenario from the Ivaylo campaign). He is also available in the Scenario Editor.

Though the unit is unique, it operates identical to that of a Kipchak, albeit with higher armor, attack and health. Like all hero units, it is immune to conversion and regenerates health.
