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.
“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.
8% of the mongol men living in the former empire were related to Genghis Khan. The Mongols would rape women and if they had a husband and kids they would make them watch their mom or wife get raped then kill everyone except the mother after. This is only the amount of women Genghis Khan raped there is no telling how many the other warriors raped all together. This was truly a ruthless way of showing strength and power. While the mongols ate dinner they had people suffocating underneath the table they were eating on. This is showing that the only rule the mongols lived by was eat sleep and kill. The poor people under the table are having their last breath while the mongol warriors are 3 inches away having the time of their life. They also killed 11.8% of the population in their period of ruling. That adds up to 1.8 million deaths of people per year from 1206-1227. This is in the top 5 for deaths in war and we have way more advanced technology today then they will have ever seen. If that isn’t bloodthirsty and merciless i can’t tell you what
Mongols - A people mentioned as early as the records of the Tang Empire, lived in northern Eurasia. Established an enormous empire under Genghis Khan. This linked western and eastern Eurasia. The Mongols affected history positively and negatively, they caused death, suffering, conflagration, but also promoted the movement of people, expanding markets, and demand for products. They also revived Silk Road trade.
Notorious for their barbaric manners and their brutal tactics of invading and plundering, the Mongols are commonly associated with a strictly negative reputation and despised for it. Although this negative image remains associated with their history, with hindsight, historians have been able to shed light on a positive perspective of the Mongols and their success creating the largest Empire in world history. This paper will argue that although they were regarded as violent, invading strangers and initially given few rights, their image in history has changed because the Mongols were not simply a destructive people; despite lack of historical evidence and documentation, historians have found they had many positive influences on Asia. Under Mongol rule there was an improvement of status for many peoples, religious tolerance, and an increase in the trade of products, culture, and knowledge.
It is evident through events in history that many people and groups resort to barbarism to achieve their goals and aspirations. The Mongols, Christians, and Muslims demonstrated similar actions throughout their interactions with others to complete their different objectives. Yet, the barbarism exhibited by the Christians and Muslims exceeded that of the Mongols as they engaged in extreme actions to attain their conquests for religious purposes.
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.
Although the Mongols may seem barbaric through their military strategies, the imperial values of their economic and cultural characteristics exceed the barbarity of their military strategies.
As the Mongols expanded their nation through conquest, they were able to revive trade while cultivating the blend of new ideas and cultural traditions. Despite the positive attributes that the Mongols brought, the Mongol conquests also caused a great deal of destruction to the societies of Afro-Eurasia during the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. The barbaric violence used by the Mongols during these times contradicts the peace and prosperity they supposedly yearned for.
The Mongols were the greatest of the nomadic peoples who came out of the steppes (a large area of flat grassland) of Central Asia conquering the territories of their adversaries. The leader of Mongol Empire was Genghis Khan; he was the proclaimed leader of all Mongols in 1206. The empire grew rapidly under his rule and under his descendants, who sent invasions in every direction.
These now known barbarians were not always barbaric they were once nomadic people who only lived off of meat, milk, and hide of horses and sheep, along with the meat of sheep. But, their rain of terror arose once Temuchin gained leadership over the Mongol clans. As a child Temuchin had a hard life growing up. While growing up his father was poisoned by a local enemy, along with this he grew up fighting other clans as a teenager stated in Paragraph 5 of The Mongols: How Barbaric Were The “Barbarians”. This shows how although the Mongols were nomads they still faced triumphs that even the teenagers life was put at risk. But before he became the leader he faced twenty years in war to bring the Mongol clans together. For him going to war for twenty years he most likely lost
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.
During the 13th century, a tribe of so-called barbaric people, hailing from Mongolia were known as skilled tacticians and generally as warlords throughout the time, as they were portrayed as cruel and savvy in combat. Known as the Mongols, and later as the Khans, they spread throughout most of the known world through conquest. The Mongols, however, known as one of the most fierce conquerors of the time were explicitly not as barbaric as they are portrayed to be, and it can be seen through their technology, social along with the political structure, and their military organization.
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
The start of the Mongol Empire began as a system of nomadic pastoralists who were extremely well experienced horsemen and traveled with their flocks of sheep, goats, cattle, and horses over the vast steppes of the prairielands of Central Asia. At the start of the Mongols rise to supremacy was the formation of tribal coalition known as “All the Mongols” (Saunders 1971) While the early tribal coalition was successful at establishing itself as a power in Manchuria and North China, it wasn’t until the rise of a well-known figure did the Mongols ascend to a force to fear and respect. That
