The Mongols period (1206-1368) was a horrific time but also somewhat peaceful. The Mongols invaded the largest land empire in “human history”. The Empire fell most times after two hundred after being built. The Mongols changed history greatly. They had many positive and negative on the empire.
The Mongols were a clan of people who showed their barbarism through inflicting ruthless fear tactics, killing hundred thousands of people, and living by a set of uncivilized rules and barbarous body of laws. Mongols had countless ways of forcing fear not only on their enemies but among their own people as well. The Mongols number one method in ensuring that their people will stay in line is by threatening death upon them. If a few, in battle, flee from the enemy the entire group gets killed, unless they return back and in this case only the ones who originally fled are killed. If one or two from a group goes bravely towards the enemy, and others don’t follow, they are killed.
The Mongol Empire had created a single economic and cultural world system. In 13 century, the the Mongols had seized nearly the whole Eastern Europe, including now Russia, Ukraine, Romania, Bulgaria and Hungary. Scholars regard the Mongol conquest as one of the most deadliest invasions in human history. The Mongols also called the Tatars, which means Hell in Roman. Historian Brian Landers stated in his book that "The Mongols brought terror to Europe on a scale not seen again until the twentieth century."
How Barbaric were the Barbarians? The Mongols were a barbaric peoples that reigned with cruelty. They displayed their barbaric tendencies showed through in their invasion and destruction of Nishapur, Persia, their methods of execution, and their rules. Throughout all these events and topics, the Mongols show an extreme level of cruelty, shown by no other before them.
World Domination, is it possible? Well, it 's certainly not impossible cuz it has almost happened before a few times. One noticeable time was in the 13th century when a small tribe from the grasslands of central Asia conquered much of the known world. This tribe later became known as the Mongols. Mongols warriors swept across much of Asia, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe.
If Mongol khan Ogedei had not died I don’t see the Mongolians defeating Western Europe. The only way I see a defeat is if the Mongols established vassal states with other European countries. Western Europe had castles and fortresses to their advantage and the terrain was vastly different from the steppes of Central Asia, Eastern Europe and Russia. Although, one of the great strengths of the Mongolians were their “adaptability to local conditions” (textbook, pg 259). The invasion of Poland in 1241 “the battle of Liegnitz” (textbook, 256) was far from the rolling steppes of Central Asia.
When China was invaded by the Mongols in 1276 C.E. I, a Chinese Confucian scholar, was fascinated with the Mongols endeavor to ingratiate themselves into Confucian China. They adopted many of the policies and rituals that Confucianist pursed. The Mongols also demonstrated the five relationships by displaying the capability and power of their ruler compared to the capability and power of a subject. I believe that Genghis Khan and his descendants are not guilty of genocide and crimes against humanity because they pursued to flatter the people who followed Confucianism, adopted many of their traditions, and spread the Confucian philosophy throughout their
When the Yuan dynasty ruled China, the Mongols controlled land that included their homeland to the north. Through trade routes they were connected to the rest of the Mongol empires that lay to the west and to the Middle East and Europe. Since the Mongols and their allies ruled most of central Asia, they had little need to reinforce their defenses and did little to maintain the Great Wall. The early Ming emperors pushed the Mongols and other nomadic tribes north and secured their borders.
In the 1400s, the Mongols were largely coming out of Mongol rule. There were both advantages and disadvantages to Mongol influence. One of the advantages was the establishment of a tribute government, not a full government. This allowed for a system which was more efficient and put more power into the hands of the ruler. Another advantage was the adoption of Mongol dress and social habits.
The Mongols have done many things to impact the future of Asia and the world. Whether they had a positive or negative. The mongols had a positive on the world they were able to impact the world in more ways that one. The Mongols conquered miles of land,developed war tactics and their way of life day in and day out The Mongols were able to conquer vast areas of land through the 13th century.
The Mongols were a group of nomadic people that had a far from good reputation. Eight centuries ago the Mongols conquered much of the known world led by Genghis Khan. Their violent and rash actions got them the name ¨Barbarians¨, which was a term referring to people who were beyond reach of humanity, people who were evil or savage. The Mongols committed many barbaric crimes and they are shown through places they passed through, Genghis Khan, and their beliefs.
The Great Wall:Did the benefits outweigh the costs? “The great wall is also known as the longest graveyard. ”Emperor Qin had believed China needed more protection so he built a great wall,which was finished being built by several dynasty’s to pass. Despite the losses of the workers lives the great wall benefited China by providing protection,glorifying China, and helped the trading system.
