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.

Adeena Liang Ms. Udwin AP World 1A November 14th, 2016 Mongol DBQ The 13th and 14th centuries were an eventful time in history. One of the events includes the Hundred Years’ War, which basically created nationalism and a more modern form of warfare.

The ruler of this empire was Genghis Khan, who along with his descendants expanded the Mongol Empire to include lands from Eastern Asia to Eastern Europe.

Their conquests left millions dead, yet they changed much in the regions which they conquered. Their rule enabled the unification of the Mongol tribes, cultural progression in the Middle East, and innovations in multiple fields in China. Throughout their reign, the Mongols left three clear principal legacies: innovation throughout their empire, increased cultural contact, and a lasting environmental benefit. Principal legacy is the lasting imprint a being or object makes on a large scale.

But unlike other armies the Mongols usually didn’t carry siege weapons as they would slow down the speed in which they could travel so instead they would get the Chinese engineers and bombardier corps to build “catapults and trebuchets on the spot using the available local resources.” (Rogers & Clifford, 2010). It was this type of adaptation, which allowed the Mongolian empire to spread so far and so
His rough start in life and his escape from the Chinese made people sympathize with him at the beginning. But after being exiled, the Dalai Lama’s spiritual, political and moral authority was rooted through his advocacy for Tibetan freedom from the Chinese and he was admired by the West for his peaceful resistance towards China, which earned him a Noble Prize. Second of all, in the West, the Dalai Lama is viewed as a living Ghandhi for applying his pacifist policies regarding China’s forced entrance into Tibet. Third of all, his modern view of Buddhism as well as his approaches to significant public issues like the human rights, the oppression of the minority and the environment, affected and influenced the West significantly. The combination of these three points allowed him to meet with world leaders.
Shaibani Khan and the uzbek fighters were better, horrible and more in number than Babur and his men.

Indeed, after the battle, we see how fair Alexander he restored Porus’ kingdom to him. However, this episode did come with some near fatal consequences for alexander as his men no longer wanted to advance into India and instead wanted to turn home. However, Alexander could persuade them to continue on to more great
