Genghis Khan; short review

Post  Brandon H. on Mon Apr 23, 2012 8:06 pm

Born with the name Temujin, sometime between 1162 and 1167 was the Mongolian warlord, known in history as Genghis Khan, a name he gave himself. He is historically relevant because he was an emperor who took many paces and unified Mongolia, and set up for his offspring to take Russia, which would then last the Mongolian empire 270 years in Russia, all for his descendants to fight over. He would not die soon though. He is also who we have been studying since yesterday.

He was in total control of his empire in 1206, after unifying all of the tribes/nomadic tribes. He was ready to start his mission in Russia. first he sacked places in India, Bejing, Bulgaria, and few eastern. His children actually did most of the taking of Russia. I have just read from my source which is http://dev.laptop.org/pub/content/wp/en/Genghis_Khan.html. That/s right, in the book it claims that the II and IV were conquerers of Russia. He is still an importnt historical figure and a good backstory to know for our current studies.

He died in August, of 1227. Leaving an enormous empire behind, that would sack most of Russia. He is on the list of greatest warlords of all written history. He left behind a powerful name that would be passed down and written in history; Genghis Khan.

Genghiz Khan has a literal translation to universal ruler. This is because he held an empire beyond belief or comprehension, the largest continuitive one in history. He is also considered a demon, a ruler of evil and hell, he embraced torture, death, and destruction of millions, notthing to be proud about. Keep up the good work on the blogs by the way!

Born near the present day border between Mongolia and Russia, Genghis was originally named Temujin. When his father, a local chieftain, was killed, a struggle for leadership of the tribe ensued and Temujin was forced to flee for his life.
By 1206, Temujin’s obvious military prowess united the Mongol tribes and earned him the title of Genghis Khan.
Once he had the undisputed rule of the Mongol tribes, Genghis Khan turned his attention to China. He seized Beijing by 1215.
Khan’s military tactics included moving at an unprecedented speed. Each of his men kept three to four horses so that they could travel as much as 100 miles a day. They were experts in horsemanship and in archery. They usually attacked by surprise and overran a territory with amazing speed. His tactics were not to be duplicated until the twentieth century with tanks and Hitler’s “blitzkrieg” warfare.
By the time of his death, Genghis Khan had created an empire that covered most of Asia. He had several sons who carried on his rule. His grandson Kublai Khan became the ruler of China and started the Yuan dynasty.
