Welcome to Our
web about Mongolian Great Leader
And Mongolian Empire
Until the end of the 12th century, the Mongols were little more
than a loose confederation of rival clans. A Mongol named Temujin was born in
1162 (although the exact date is open to debate) His father was a leader of
the Kiyat-Borjigin tribe, while the ethnic origins of his mother are subject
to conjecture. As a teenager, he killed his half-brother in cold blood, and
at the age of 20, he emerged from a power struggle to become the leader of the
Kiyat-Borjigins. Within a few years, he managed to unite most of the Mongol
tribes, and in 1189, he was given the honorary name of Chinggis Khaan, meaning
‘universal (or oceanic) king’. No Mongolian leader before or since has held
the Mongolians together.
Chinggis set up his capital at Karakorum, in present-day Kharkhorin (Avarga, in Delgerkhaan district of the Khentii province, also claims to be Chinggis’ capital), gathered a loyal army (possibly up to 200,000 men from many ethnic groups) and went on to create the largest empire the world has ever seen By the time of his death in 1227 (from injuries sustained after falling off his horse), the Mongol empire extended from Beijing to the Caspian Sea.
