Thus spoke the man who would conquer nearly all of Asia, and lay the foundation for one of the mightiest empires ever seen under the sun; whose grandson, Kublai, would one day rule one quarter of the Earth. This was none other than GENGHIS KHAN.


Genghis Khan, born under the name Temujin, was born in 1162 as the son of the chief of the Yakka Mongols. When he turned 10, his father was poisoned. Temujin succeded his father as chief. Upon his ancension, all his tribe deserted him. He then lived a harsh lonely existence, digging roots for food and only owning seven sheep. Three years later, he met with a group of his former tribesmen, and shared his military and political beliefs with them. They liked his ideas and many more people began listening to them. He used these audiences to form alliances and the alliances into armies. He used strict discipline and harsh training to organize a superior army. Temujin next wrote the first Mongol code of laws called Yasa. The laws stated that he must choose his officers and rank by achievement, not their family connections. The laws also said his commandos must stay loyal to their leader or ruler. From then on, Temujin’s goal was to leave the world better than he found it. He used his armies to take over neighboring tribes. Soon, all of Mongolia was his. He was given the title Genghis Khan, which means "All-Powerful Lord". He then set out on a quest to take over all of China. He would do so by conquering the three main empires that made up China. First the smallest, Xi Xia. Then the Qin. And finally the largest, Na-Chung.

Genghis Khan was undefeated in battle. After conquering Mongolia, the Great Khan wanted all of China. He fulfilled his desire by conquering the three main empires that made up China. First Xi Xia, then Qin, and finally, Na-Chung. When he first attacked Xi Xia, he conquered it easily by defeating only two armies of 50 people each. The Qin Empire conquest was much more challenging, however. Just to get there he had to break through the weakest spot of the Great Wall of China which was up north from where they were. After all that, Genghis had to defeat the Qin’s mercenaries, Muhammad and his armies of Khwarazmains. He defeated them and settled a treaty with Muhammad. Muhammad broke it by killing a Mongol ambassador. That resulted in Genghis killing Muhammad. Genghis’ next battle was against Beijing, capitol of the Qin Empire. He won it by demolishing the capitol building, then beheading their ruler, Guchluk. Genghis now ruled the Qin Empire. After the Qins, Genghis moved his armies north into Asia. The Russians tried to stop him, but Genghis defeated the Russian army!! He settled a treaty with the Russian ruler. The treaty stated that the Russians had to offer military assistance when ever summoned. When it was settled, Genghis moved back into China. When he got to China again, Genghis started on his greatest challenge of all, conquering the Empire of Na-Chung! It took three years, but Genghis’ armies chewed up everything it their paths killing over 60,000 people finally conquering the Na-Chung Empire.
