The Comanche Nation was known for its prowess in battle, but this was not always the case. Before the 17th century, they were a nomadic, peaceful Tribe, but all of that changed when Spanish colonizers brought horses to the Americas.

The Comanche Nation displayed exceptional aptitude with the horses. That ability would lead to their reputation as a Tribe of skilled and trained warriors who were invincible in battle.

Over the next century, the Comanche Nation grew to become a nomadic mounted empire with a stunning military force. This stereotype persisted well into the 19th century when colonizers defeated the Comanche Nation in battle.

Some historians have compared the Comanche Nation to that of the Spartans in Greece, as their culture, according to the video, revolved largely around fighting and combat.

This focus on military conquest led to the Comanche Nation nearly wiping out several other Native American Tribes, including the Apaches, the Pawnees, the Osages, the Blackfeet, the Kiowas and the Tonkawas.

Once colonizing Europeans began invading the middle plains, the Comanche Nation controlled 250,000 square miles. For this reason, some historians refer to the Comanche Nation as not just a Tribe but an empire.
