Almost everyone in the world has heard the name Genghis Khan, but how they view his legacy varies greatly depending on what part of the world they live in. In Europe and the Americas the name Genghis Khan is synonymous with barbarism, cruelty, murder and destruction, but in much of Asia he is viewed as a hero, a unifier and a military genius. Even his date of birth is a subject of some debate. Whatever perspective you choose to take, the one thing that is undeniable, is the fact that a boy named Temujin, the son of a Mongol chieftain, would change the face of an entire continent.
Genghis Khan, one the most famous conquered and ruler of all the world history, Genghis Khan was the one who we can say that he started the Yuan Empire or as we know right now the Yuan Empire.Genghis Khan is one of the most successful leaders, he has achieved so many awesome stuff in the past, but one of the most important is that he joined the nomad tribes of Magnolia because of that he has loyal warriors who can fight at his side and from that he start conquered lands like for example the one that I gave in the thesis statement the conquered of the Jin empire. The nomad tribes, now let's talk about how he joined and make the
Genghis Khan was a major turning point in history. He founded the Mongolian Empire in 1206, arguably the most defining point of his life. He implemented religious freedom in Mongolia, allowing his subjects and those who were conquered to freely practice their own religion. In addition to this, he and his descendants brought Asian cultures closer to Europe, bringing them into contact with each other by expanding Mongolia.
When Mongol warriors first attacked and conquered no one had known where they had developed from. Because of this fact, the Mongols had the upper hand in attacking and conquering greater lands. Genghis Khan was one of the great rulers of the Mongols. His strategy in the army was to unite soldiers more but in a forcing manner. A soldier could be killed if they or people from their quad had run away from battle, or if some soldiers are brave and go straight
He was well respected as an emperor for he was enigmatic enough to inspire the Mongols to follow him into war. Khan would also give his followers the spoils from their raids and would give important people positions of power: “I shall organize the army in units of a thousand, and those who have come with me to help found the empire shall be made leaders of a thousand and in addition I shall reward them with words of gratitude” (Secret History 23-24). Genghis became quite famous as his army grew quickly due to the promises of riches from their next invasion. He continued to gain honor by expanding the Mongol Empire as other leaders of other countries and empires lost their honor. Other empires, such as the Kereits, Persians, and Muslims, could not defend against the Mongols and were “stripped of their possessions and to be enslaved” (Secret History 22). Genghis Khan was able to make the Mongol Empire extremely powerful by creating unity of command, organization, and
“I am the wrath of God. If you had not committed great sins, God would not have sent a punishment like me upon you.”- Chinggis Khan. Chinggis Khan was the greatest military and political mind of his, if not all, time. His name has become synonymous with ruthlessness, but Chinggis Khan was actually the most civilized, merciful, and eco-friendly ruler of his time.
As I stated up above Genghis Khan and the Mongols had a positive impact on the world during their rule of the Asian continent from the years of 1260 and 1368. They influenced the Largest Empire twice as large as Alexander the Great’s, United China for the first time in forever, and trading along the Silk
One of the greatest rulers, Genghis Khan, had a dramatic impact on history due to his brutal leadership and military tactics. He was a vicious ruler who successfully conquered and expanded his empire. “Genghis Khan was a warrior and ruler of genius who, starting from obscure and insignificant beginnings, brought all the nomadic tribes of Mongolia under the rule of himself and his family in a rigidly disciplined military state” (Bawden, 2017). Genghis Khan’s military armies swept through most of Asia’s powerful civilizations leading to the spread of Mongolian teachings. He brutally conquered areas by killing any opposing civilizations. However, he forced no religion on the conquered, which allowed the spread of new religions across the continent. With these new religions, new ways of thinking, learning, and teaching developed. Once Genghis Khan
The Mongols were considered one of the empires that had a long lasting impact on global history. During the reign of Genghis Khan and even after his death, the Mongolians opened up trade routes along the Silk Road that introduced gunpowder to Europe, gave women power and authority and although they did put fear and death on the lands they conquered, afterwards the territory became unified under one nation which came to be known as the Pax Mongolia. To analysis the entirety of the Mongolian Empire would be considered a challenge at hand, but to give credit that the Mongols did nothing to contribute to world history besides the massacre of 40+ million people and the black death is a fault. Although the con factors were also true, it seems that the positive outweighs the negative thus proving that the Mongolians did good for global history.
Kublai Khan, who was the grandson of Genghis Khan, ran the largest empire in history. Born in 1215 in Mongolia, he was the first emperor to rule over an entire country. He was not just a valued leader though, for he trained harshly as a kid to become a skilled fighter, hunter and also horseman. Philosophy also played a huge role in his lifespan. Kublai Khan studied philosophy and chinese culture which later he would find out would help with decision making about ruling. Becoming ruler in 1260, Kublai Khan established a new capitol calling it Shangdu. Not just that, but also helping his brother expand the entire kingdom. After being in battle against the Song in Southern China and hearing about his older brother Möngke’s death, Kublai Khan
Many historians have different views on whether the Mongols had a positive or negative affect on the world during their time period. Over the course of their rule the Mongols had a couple of powerful leaders that brought different views and ideas of what an empire should look like, and how it should be run. Genghis Khan ruled from 1206 to 1227 A.D. He brought great military strengths that helped them conquer a lot of land. After his death in 1227 A.D. many rulers had come and gone. In 1271 A.D. Genghis’ grandson took charge. He had a different approach to ruling the empire. Unlike Genghis he was not a military leader, but rather a “business man” that helped increase foreign trade. Overall the Mongolians of the Asian Steppe had a positive impact on the world during their rule of the Asian continent from 1206 to 1368 by influencing trade, inventions, and unification amongst China.
Mongol Empire is not sophisticated like Greek or grandeur like the Roman but they still able to shape the world. Mongols unify China and exposed it to world trade. The Mongol contributed to India by giving one of its greatest Monarchs, Akbar the Great. He was the best Mongolian emperor of India. Mongols also help Russians to unify and formed their own empire. Mongol Empire is known for their religious tolerance, they gave people the freedom to choose their own religion. They welcomed different religion like Buddhism, Islam and Roman Catholic. In conclusion, Mongol Empire shaped the world by shaping Russia and China, the two largest and mightiest countries in the

Temujin, better known as Genghis Khan, was born in northern Mongolia in 1162. After uniting the nomadic Mongolian tribes in 1206, Khan led a successful military campaign that spanned more than three decades, pillaging vast areas of land and subjugating millions of people. Though Khan and his armies are often thought of as cruel barbarians, his advanced military tactics and progressive outlook on ruling painted him in a somewhat different light.
