The Song of Igor's Campaign is a 12th-century medieval poem about the military exploits of Igor Svyatoslavich against the Polovtsians. Igor's campaign is ultimately unsuccessful and is presented as a tragedy and a failure of the flower of Russian chivalry. Igor himself is shown as heroic and bold but betrayed by incompetent officers and cowardly soldiers, as well as simply outnumbered by the scheming Polovtsians and their well-trained army.
