So basically the answer is there were no actual dominance or leadership (which was my original question), it was just a game of dynastic marriages? There were no important sociological or economical sides of that game? You just mentioned something about "more populous".

comment Was it Stalin behind the idea of universal elections in the USSR?
Nice discussion, but when you think about purges, consider that Stalin's USSR was not orwelian, there was no TV in every house, even telegraph and radio in 1937 was still covering tiny parts of huge USSR. Moscow newspaper would arrive in some cities days later and others month later, small towns were connected to the others by country-roads and industrialization was only taking place, so horses. When you think about almighty dictator, note that he was just a small body in kremlin.

comment How Did Moscow Become the Capital/Most Important City in Russia?
Felix, I was talking about russian warlords, who later become tzarist aristocracy and influence culture and governance for ages. Here I also talk about regular people, those who will pay to warlords. (and hide from him if possible). But once cannot hide, better choose wisely your lord. Hordes like building storms, nearly 'random', warlords are riders on the storm. Russian people would not form hordes the same way as mongol(manchu,steppe,etc), thus not truly part of 'mongol empire'. But russian warlords were. They used mongol-learned ways of horde(strom) riding to built russia. now makes sense?
