The Mongol Empire was the largest continuous land empire in history, taking control of many Afro-Eurasian societies in the thirteenth and fourteenth century. Not only were the Mongols militarily powerful, they were also administratively powerful. The Mongols had a major impact on societies of Afro-Eurasia during this time period because their conquests ruined cities, their cultural diverse population adopted controlling positions, and their administrative efficiency promoted economy.
The Mongols may have been seen as barbaric and cruel to the outside eye, but “good” people and “bad” people are a relative term and the Mongols saw the world as kill or be killed. The Mongols saw themselves as survivors and didn’t think twice about doing whatever it took to keep going. The Mongols were from the thirteenth century in the grasslands of Central Asia. Mongols looked down upon other civilizations for their way of life and believed life should be lived on horseback. They were seen as cruel to outside society, but what isn’t normally acknowledged is that the Mongols also contributed to society. Mongols were violent and killed men, women and children. However, Mongols diversified the land, created trade routes and believed in their morals.
The Mongols were a very barbaric nomad group. In the 13th century the Mongols created the largest connected land mass empire in the history of the world because they were barbaric when it came to their tactics, killing and conquering, and economy and law.
Throughout the 13th century world, the Mongols constantly showed displays of continuous violence, drinking, brutality and unfair treatment. They were considered to be savages, and people who lived far beyond what we would know as a “civilized world.” They single handedly became one of, if not the most powerful empires to have existed, building their empire through violent and barbaric manors. The Mongols were very barbaric people, for they portrayed many inhumane and mannerless actions while their empire lasted, causing death destruction and the downfall of all of the land they took over.
The Mongol conquest has been depicted by many as being barbaric to human civilization and by others as having influenced Islamic civilization. More has been talked about, and much has been studied. There has been a lot of traces leading to their destruction upon cities they came across, for instance, Baghdad, most of those who suffered under the Mongolian action were those identified as enemies and those who resisted their ruling strategy (Levi & Stela, 2009, pg. 116). The Mongols were branded as a misfortune to the Muslims depending on the individual historian studying the events and the city chosen for study. They were perceived as destroying the religious groups found in the regions they intended to concur and integrate them into their massive empire. They were indeed ferocious fighters and capable of doing many other atrocities to anyone who had the courage to oppose them, but their conquest had several impacts other than death and suffering.
The Mongolians ruled most of China for almost 2 centuries from 1200 to 1360. They executed millions and destroyed tons of homes and villages. They conquered 11-12 million square miles of land. The Mongolians had a powerful ruler named Genghis Khan, who with his army killed over 40 million people. The Mongolians had a negative impact on the future history of Asia and the World because they killed millions and they started the Bubonic Plague, the Mongolians also burned the largest library in the World.
The Mongols were very harsh and brutal like no one else in their era but I believe that they are not barbarians. The Mongols had a strong dominating military that was almost always successful, they contributed to many of the ideas that are still around today, and made a very stern set of laws that kept their community civilized which is why I believe that the Mongols were not barbarians.
According to the background essay on the Mongols, “The Mongols were a small tribe during the 13th century. They were from the grasslands of Central Asia and conquered much of the known world.” The essay also said that “They operate from the backs of horses and sometimes use siege weapons.” It was also explained how the Mongols were one of the several nomadic peoples who competed with one another for pasture land and livestock. They also had no metal working, no written language, and no permanent homes. The Mongols also were first led by Genghis Khan and did not have a good reputation. The Mongols may have been successful, but it was due to mostly negative examples and information. The Mongols were although positive in a way. For example their Yam System, to make them go faster and farther. However, this example and many other positive examples are ways for the Mongols to fight better and kill more people. The Mongols were barbaric because they were brutal and ruthless.
“In the 13th century CE the Mongols created the largest connected landmass empire in the history of the world”. Mongols are the people of Mongolia who are referred to as barbaric. Barbarians are people who are evil or savage. The Mongols were far from barbaric.
The Mongols are a group of people that live north of present day China, in the Asian Steppe. Although Mongolia is a pretty irrelevant nation now, Mongolia has had a huge impact on the world over the course of history. The Mongols once controlled the largest connected empire in history. The Mongols were able to craft their empire in a small amount of time, for it seemed that the Mongols’ only purpose was to destroy and conquer. The Mongols were cruel in their battles, for they killed millions and destroyed cities and civilizations in their conquests. Although, I believe 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, ideas, and unification.
The Mongolian of the Asian Steppe had a positive impact on the world during their rule of the Asian continent from 1260 and 1368 by influencing peace, reunification of Asia, and good trade.
Who were the Mongols? The Mongols were what started out as a small tribe or group from the grasslands of central Asia. They are known to the world as the “barbarians” or “barbaros” which a long time ago to the greeks meant foreigners. Later on, the word “barbarian” was modified to mean people who were not civilized, those who were murderers or vile. The Mongols are categorized as barbaric because of their cruel punishments, conquering a large number of civilizations through murder, and a organized yet unfair Mongol Empire.
The Mongols were barbaric in the terms that whenever they conquered land it required a lot of violence, but it was productive since they had more square miles than other world conquests (Document A). Mongols strategy was barbaric to the extent that they kill you even if you are not at fault.
The Mongols were called barbaric are they really they may have destroyed cities and villages but they were human to the fought with smarts and brawn they are strong they did everything civilized they ate they had the life of normal citizens yes they may have killed like barbarians but they fought like humans nothing was going to stand in their way they are humans they try their best they seem barbaric they have the heart of
