Got everything right, but thought maybe it's worth pointing out that there *was* a flowering of culture and literature under the Timurid Empire which was one of the successor states to the Mongol Empire in and around Persia. I guess that was many years after the invasions, though, not during them.

Yes, Italy was part of the Triple Alliance, but it was a defensive pact in nature and never participated in WW1 on that side. Technically Italy was neutral until they joined the Allies in 1915 after some negotiations had taken place.
