Chinggis Khan is accredited for uniting the Mongolian Empire and ruthlessly conquering vast stretches of Asia during his time. Originally born under the name Temujin to a Mongolian chieftain, he became chief at the age of 13 after his father was murdered. Known to be a charismatic leader, he was eventually able to unify the rest of the Mongol tribes. His nick name Chinggis Khan, meaning the “emperor of all emperors”, thus arose.
Not satisfied with ruling all the Mongol tribes, Genghis set out a campaign of conquest which included portions of modern-day China, Russia, Mongolia, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and Kyrgyzstan. At the height of the Mongol Empire, it stretched from Korea to Eastern Europe. Shortly after Genghis’s death, the empire quickly disintegrated under his heirs.
How were Genghis Khan and his army able to conquer such a vast land in such a short time? Not only were the Mongol armies highly disciplined and effective, but they were known to be vicious as well. Typically, they gave an enemy city the opportunity to surrender peacefully. If the offer was not taken, then every resident was killed. This caused such great terror that often times Genghis and his army were able to conquer whole nations without a fight.
Chinggis Khan’s Mongol Empire opened up contact between Europe and Asia by opening the Silk Road, the trade route which the Italian Marco Polo used to reach the land of the Khans. The Mongol Empire has inspired writers such as British poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge and his poem.

He noted that the first („,) is a man of fifty-one and young for his years…It is a face full of life,of enegry, of vivid aspiration… the other is so sad and peaceful in its infinite repose… a look as of one on whom sorrow and care had done their worst without victory is on all the features.
