Genghiz Khan: The man who rose the world's largest land existing empire

Post  Brock M. Hay on Sun Apr 29, 2012 1:17 pm


This is obviously based from the documentary that we saw on the life of Genghiz Khan, and many of you will read this with great interest because you probably weren't even paying attention to the historical detail, just mindlessly staring at the attention striking fight scenes. Genghiz Khan grew up as a boy named Temujing (honestly I am oblivious to if this is the actual spelling or not) son of the tribal leader. He was born holding a blood clot in a mighty baby fist, this was thought as a sign of him becoming a great warrior. One day mother alerted him quickly to their tent, in which Temujing (Wong, Chang, Nissan, some Asian name) saw his father die before him, from the hands of long time rivaling tribes. As Temujing quotes "from that point I will never be a child again." As a boy, a couple years younger than we are, lead armies that sought destruction and pain to those who were responsible for his father's death. He was the new tribal leader, being the eldest son of his family. At one point he invaded a high walled Mongolian city, and invented many catapult like weapons to do so, as well as launching bubonic plague infected bodies over the wall to poison the city. This along with many other great victories, gave Temujing a high name by the time he was in his late teens, but lets not travel that far yet. At about the age of thirteen, he met a beautiful woman from a neighboring tribe who would soon be his bride, as he said "she was a woman of beauty". At one point she was captured by enemy tribes and would not be seen again for years of pursuit. By the time his victories has lead him to reunite with his wife, he had already grown great friends. Jamaja was a coinciding leader with Temujing since their childhood blood vow as brothers. Yet, there was tension between them. Jamaja was far more traditional, in honor of birth and nobility. Temujing on the other hand said that "One's virtue of birth does not win a battle", Temujing made any person of any family be at any high rank if they were capable. After much feuding between the two, Temujing wondered if "was truly my sworn brother anymore" and at one point Jamaja left the tribe, dividing half of the warriors with him. After many battles fought Jamaja was killed, and the tribal council named Temujing Genghiz Kahn, or "leader of the world", as to that he would continue his murdering campaign for many years to come.
