They did depopulate what was once the Persian Empire in the 14th Century and did the same a century earlier in Poland, but even the Mongols didn't slaughter everyone. Their usual routine was to destroy the city walls, and set up local satraps to collect taxes.

After all; no matter how many resources you have, you need the workers to supply what the military needs.

Try editing first to maintain the flow. making it too long is something they can deal with
