Tamerlane is a cavalry archer hero found in the Scenario Editor in Age of Empires II. He is based on the Turco-Mongol ruler with the same name who is also known as Timur. Tamerlane is best known for establishing the Central Asian Timurid dynasty as its first emperor in an attempt to restore the Mongol Empire of Genghis Khan, and is an ancestor of Babur.

In-game, he is represented by a Mangudai. Like other cavalry archers, Tamerlane is affected by all upgrades that affect cavalry archers as well as any other bonuses that affect them. As a hero, he cannot be converted and can regenerate health (since The Conquerors).
