"Закон" Мандухай-хатун для ойратов и особенности развития монгольского права в "темные века"

The article devoted to so called “edict” of Mandukhai Khatun, Mongolian queen of the second part of 15th c. which was issued after subjugation by her of Oirat tribes. Author analyses the “edict” within the context of development of the Mongolian law during “Dark Ages” (end of 14th–15th cc.) — period poorly covered in sources. Mongolian law during this time was on the decline after the periods of Mongolian and Yuan Empires (1206–1368), there are isolated instances of records of Mongolian laws of this period in sources. That’s why the information about certain edict and especially with text in sources of it is of high value. Author comments the “edict” of Mandulhai Khatun, reveals it ties with Mongolian imperial law as well as new tendencies which became more apparent in the codifications of the end of 16th–18th cc., attempts to explain why text of the “edict” was included in one set of sources and absent in other one.
