The Mongols destroyed cities many times throughout their existence and that was how they got their reputation. One example is shown through a battle against the Russian Army, “Russian army fell quickly in the bloodstained snow, the grand prince himself killed and decapitated. By April much of Northern Russia lay in smoking ruins.” The Mongols were facing off against the Russians and didn’t take it easy on them. They destroyed their entire city. Burning every one of their buildings to the ground, which is very cruel.
Because of this derision from the Mongols toward the Chinese, Mongols faced rebellion from the Chinese population that was uncontrollable. Eventually in 1368, the Mongol empire was taken over by rebel forces because of the hatred towards Mongol overlords and their unjust ruling. Leadership from the Mongols in china and the Middle East differed greatly and for Persia lead to beneficial for the empire while Mongol rule in china eventually lead to the decline of the
Genghis Khan had a force of 120,000 army, Khan wiped out all rival force in Mongolia that had not joined him. Khan attacked and conquered Northern China. Genghis Khan launched a vicious attack on the Quezon Empire. When the mongols attack the city, they killed everyone on that city. They destroyed irrigation canals so that city would not rise again.
The 14th century was an new and exciting time for China, during this time the Mongolian empire was being attacked and chased out of China by the Ming army. In about 1380, Zheng He’s father was killed, it’s unsure if he was just a bystander that got caught in the onslaught, or if he was helping the Mongol army. After this Zheng He was taken captive by the Ming army. He was castrated and sent to the servitude of the Prince of Yan who raised him to become a well respected individual. He became a wealthy and powerful individual and was given a new mission.
Mongol armies tore through most of the ancient world throughout the 13th century. Pillaging and plundering every nation in their path, the Mongols left an impressive wake of destruction and death. The Mongols shook the world with the impact of their conquests, but not of their influence was negative. Overall the Mongols brought much needed change in politics and commerce to both China and the Middle East.
In the 1600s, the British people took interest in India. In 1707 when the Mongol Empire was collapsing, which meant the British had a chance to take over. By 1857 Britain took full, direct control of India. Although the British developed a very strong army, they restricted the freedom of Indians, created national parks, but abused natural resources, and killed almost 60 millions people but brought modern medicine. When the British took over India, they took over pretty much the entire government and created laws that restricted the rights of the Indians.
Did you know that from 1875 to 1900 there were 26 million deaths caused by famine in India? As the East India Company (Britain) saw India growing weaker they took that as an advantage and sent troops to India and defeated them. Britain soon took power over India, They formed a group of Indian Soldiers called sepoys to join their army. Starting out, Britain improved many things, but after a while they started taking advantage of India by using their raw materials and people to grow their own empire. British Rule in India resulted in the in them taking over the government, taking all the material from the Indians and destroying their land and ending in a large amount of India's population dead because of famine.
Could you imagine the government coming to your family 's property you have had for years and taking it and making everyone walk a 1000 miles? Well thats is what happened to the Native Americans. They were drove from there property beaten and killed. Then made them walk over a 1000 miles to their new place that was awful. There was no food or water or anything while the government took there land and made fun of them.
This treaty broke all former promises to Native Americans that they would be able to stay on what little land they had left. Consequently, they were marched 800 miles across harsh terrain in horrible conditions, dying by the thousands, despite promises that the trek would be made safe. This journey would come to be known as The Trail of Tears. As a result, Native Americans no longer had access to their hunting grounds, their sacred spaces, or the land they were familiar with. Not only were Native Americans killed, but their very spirit was crushed to the point of no return.
Genghis Khan was a great and powerful leader who had very strong ideas on warfare and put them into use. those ideas are still being used today such as their army platoons. So in this way I think that Genghis Khan had a positive way in the world but in weird ways. Even though Genghis khan destroyed many cities he was the only leader to keep all of china together for hundreds of years. and he was the creator of pax mongolica.
Guilty or not? The fate of Genghis Khan lay in the hands of the people. Both the prosecution and defense had compelling arguments on the leadership of Khan. The first person that made a compelling argument from the prosecution side was philosopher Ibn al Athir, which was portrayed by Dylan. The testimony of the Ibn al Athir touched on the ethical response to the mass killing and religious tolerance during Khan’s rule.
Despite the improvements on the walls and towers of China,the Ming dynasty's impact on architecture, because they attempted to create stable structures better the construction of the past dynasties. During the last 40 years of the Yuan dynasty era (1279-1368), there were famines, droughts, flooding on the yellow River, a bubonic plague pandemic, and other common disasters. Maybe, ten of millions of citizens died, and these catastrophes were signs of the yuan dynasty’s lost of the Mandate of Heaven. (“ChinaHighlights”)
