Some people would say the Mongols were a key development to civilization. However, the progress they made is nothing compared to their cruelty and the process they used to conquer the majority of Asia and parts of the Middle East. The Mongols were originally a small, nomadic tribe that originated from the steppes of Central Asia. The tribe placed little value on objects, considering they moved around in yurts and hardly settled. Led by Genghis Khan, they conquered land worth double the size of the Roman Empire. The Mongols were greedy, bloodthirsty barbarians who had little to no regard for human life. They went to unthinkable lengths to conquer land while destroying countless ancient cities.
During the 13th-14th century the Mongols conquered a vast amount of land through their advanced military strategies and ruthless spirit in battle, causing their empire to immensely expand. Two regions in which the Mongols conquered were China and Russia, while both territories were under Mongol control the regions were ruled differently.

Mongols were nomads from north of the Gobi Desert. They were first ruled by Genghis Khan, which means "Universal Ruler". Temuchin, which is Genghis ' birth name, lived a rough early life. His father was poisoned by an enemy. When older, he decided to unite all the Mongol clans under one empire, making him one of the most powerful people of all time (BK Essay). The Mongol empire lasted for only 40 years, 1260-1300 A.D (Doc 1). Since then and before then, there hasn 't been an empire so big, with so many advances. Even though there were many destructions throughout the process of the making of the Mongol Empire, they should be remembered as an innovative empire because it was the biggest empire in the world and still managed to be prosperous, it was tolerant towards all races/religions and people and knew how to protect it, and last, but not least, it made it 's own government and its own way of governing it.
