Khan was born near the Ohron River in Mongolia in about 1162. His
real name was Temujin. His father was a minor Mongol tribe
chieftain. During the early part of his life, he conquered
neighboring tribes. When he was about 45, he called a council
and declared himself leader of the Mongols. Everyone followed him
because he was a mastermind.
