(Document 3) These organization strategies and problem solving skills make them advanced and civil people. When the Mongols attacked they were very prepared, they had a way to defend themselves from the three thousand crossbows. They had awoke fear in the enemy which had many missiles ready, pointed towards them. (Document 4) Some of the prisoners were buried alive upside down and they would also execute then by bow and arrow. (Document 5) This technique would bring fear to the enemy of what could happen to them if they were to be captured.
Genghis Khan and the Mongol Empire Genghis Khan and the Mopopngols are invariably associated with tales of conquest, destruction, and bloodshed. Khan and his immediate successors order to strengthened Khan’s realm and improve the ability to expand the territory. Such as the conquest in Northern China, when Genghis khan moved to secure his borders in order to secure his northern border and subduing an enemy. Rise to power Temujin, a man born with brain and strength, was the son of the chief of the Yakka Mongols, who was poisoned. Which meant, that Temujin became chief at ten years old after his father’s death.
This meant that Mongols cared for more than just conquering and destroying cities, that they were actually civilized. Many different careers flourished under Mongol rule. For example, the arts, winemaking, and silk-making industries thrived because of the Mongols love for art, wine, and their contacts to China (Document J). Another major innovation that was created was the Pax Mongolica. The Pax Mongolica protected the tax free customs zones that helped Persia, Armenia-Georgia, Asia, and China prosper (Document J).
Since the Mongols were skilled at archery while on horseback, they had an advantage of having the upper hand against ordinary foot soldiers. Mongols were very smart and so they were known to forcibly relocate and use artists, musicians, and administrators to help govern and make their empire strong and successful. The Mongols usually interrogate prisoners to find out how to use psychological warfare, and eventually, they became pretty good at it. They caused fear in their enemies by tying branches on both sides of their horses so that the dust roundabout was thick and huge and it sounded/looked like twice the size of their actual army. This obviously scared their enemy.
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."
The Impact of the Mongols on Asia Trade is a crucial factor contributing to the Mongols’ success, and its influence is still felt in the nations which were once under Mongol rule that exist in modern times. As nomads, the Mongols relied heavily on trade in order to obtain manufactured goods to support their way of life, as their nomadic lifestyle did not support activities such as agricultural development. Consequently, nations brought under Mongol rule experienced great shifts towards commercialism and trade to reflect the Mongol values they were governed by. This is supported by the motivation of the Mongols to conquer China as a means to not only profit from China’s economy, but also to gain control of the Silk Road, as it provided a vast trade route that could both be used and profited from. As a nomadic people, travel was highly encouraged by the Mongols during their reign, as it was necessary in order to facilitate trade.
The Mongols The Mongols may have been barbaric in their methods of conquering territory, but they had a very civilized empire. They were extremely organized, and were able to gain access to trade with more empires and territories, in order to improve their economy. The Mongols were able to provide support for their empire, and managed to keep it stable for many years. The Mongol Empire was expansive, and required a very stable government. Great Khan was an intelligent ruler, and he proved this in his ability to expand his empire, maintain order, and fend off enemies.
Genghis’s attack strategy was questioned by many of the soldiers, and most of his soldiers did not think it would work until they had won around 3% of his battles. Genghis’s leading style was not to cower behind his men, in every single battle that the Mongols won (Whenever Genghis was in the back they lost that battle miserably) Genghis was at the front of the army every chance he had and almost always had the first kill. If the Mongols were near defeat Genghis refused to retreat (some would call this bravery others would call this stupidity), the army had only ever lost 3 battles, and 2 out of the 3 Genghis came back and took those cities back. Genghis and his army were so feared that eventually they would start accepting a tribute in return for the towns lives, most of the villages he attacked refused this request and chose to fight
In the thirteenth century, overlook left a single short sentence ‘Let us reward our female offspring when tearing away the censored pages from The Secret History of the Mongols. Jack Weatherford carefully explored the hint of what had been removed through his next analysis The Secret History of the Mongol Queens. His previous book Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World was deep insight into the man who conquered the half of the world and commanded an empire that China had dreamed of and Russia had not accomplished before. However, one would not normally think of the woman in that period as the most important reason for his empire expansion. Their lives and even the number of royal princesses were unclear in the history as if their
Genghis Khan Renown for being a ruthless, feared military leader Genghis Khan is more recognized for his military victories than his intelligence. Genghis Khan was capable of being vicious enough to be victorious in battle, yet, clever enough to rule over a diverse empire larger than Rome. Genghis Khan was both a feared military conqueror and an intelligent administrator. However, his intelligence was the most vital attribute in shaping the modern world through law, religious tolerance, and military. Genghis Khan’s intelligence allowed for him to create The Great Law of Genghis Khan.
