    While it's not clear exactly how Timur received the injuries that earned him the epithet "the Lame", what is clear is that the circumstances under which he received them could easily have killed him.

    Suppose they did kill him. How might things have changed?

    The Golden Horde does not collapse until later, this delays the rise of muscowy.
    Delhi is not sacked, what happens in India is anyone's guess.

    More Importantly, Butterflying conflict between the Ottomans and Timur, leads to Bayezid taking Constantinople in 1403.
    The Ottomans have a 50 year head start in their conquest of europe.

    Without Timur, the Kingdom of Georgia under Bagrat V 'the Great' might continue as a significant (Christian) power in the Middle East. Or at least a unified one, since the former Kingdom of Imereti had been reduced to a dukedom.
