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."
Kublai Khan failed badly in his attempts to gain control of Vietnam, but it is these attempts that led to Vietnam’s creation of border and cultures. The once disperse nation with little identity became unified through the war with the Mongols. From language, to trade, to tradition and religion, Vietnam could have become a vastly different country if it were have fallen to Chinese influence and control. Kublai Khan may have failed in his attempts to take control over Vietnam and Champa, but his failures set the contingencies of what was to become a new
Another factor that affected the people and caused them to rebel was the heavy taxes that were put upon them. And finally, the wars that were frequent at that time because of the disunity in the empire. How they came to power The first step that the Tang Dynasty took to begin its empire was reuniting China were it used its strong military power with the lead of Emperor Taizong. Then Li Yuan declared himself the new emperor of the Tang Dynasty to be known later as the founder of the Tang Dynasty.
Their territory extended from Korea to Poland, and from Vietnam to Syria. The Mongols were considered barbarians. For the ancient Greek, “barbs” simply means foreigner. By the 1200s the term was used as a much more negative term referring to the people that lived beyond the pale of civilization, people were savage, evil. The Mongols never stayed in one place, they moved around conquering lands.
He met many dangers on his way, he was attacked by the bandits, he almost got his head be-headed by a ruler and to add the spice he almost got himself drowned in a sinking ship south of India. He married few times and fathered many children. Ibn Battuta enters India: Ibn Battuta entered India through the mountains of Afghanistan, following the footsteps of Turkish warriors. These Turkish rulers from central Asia replaced the local Hindu leaders with Turks from Afghanistan and conquered and united a large area almost to the tip of the subcontinent.
Genghis Khan was a feared Mongolian warrior that killed millions of people. He had led the Mongols into many battles between the 13th century and the 14th century(1206-1368). He had conquered many dynasties, but one of the most bloodiest was the attack on the swang and tang dynasty. The Mongols have stacked people 's skulls in piles and people have written of seeing the blood and fat in the streets of their enemies. This is a great example of why the Mongols had a negative impact on the world.
The Mongols did do some good things, but the negatives just stuck out because they had more of an impact on the world. The Mongolians of the Asian Steppe had a negative impact on the world during their rule of the Asian continent from 1206 to 1368 by influencing death, destruction and guided life. One of the biggest impacts that the Mongols had on the world was how they killed anyone they wanted. In document 4 it states how many people died because of the Mongols. In 1220 60,000 people died.
Mongols were a people that were sometimes brutal but overall there people were good at heart. The Mongols were not always the most civilized of people. They sometimes took the fat of people they killed and lit it on fire then they threw the fat on the houses (Doc. 3).That was pretty brutal but on a side note the empire of Genghis Khan was more than double the size of Alexander the Greats land.
You could walk down the silk road with a gold plate dangling from your camel and not have to worry about thieves at all in the slightest bit. The mongol empire lasted from 1260 - 1368 a.d. starting with Genghis Khan and ending with kublai Khan. After they conquered China they had a lasting impact. Though it only lasted a short while the mongol empire had a positive impact especially with its Silk Road.
During their invasions of Eurasia, the Mongols ruthlessly captured, pillaged, and destroyed many lands. In an excerpt written by Muslim historian Rashid Fadl Abi-I’Hair in 1498, it states that the Mongols not only burned their great libraries, places of knowledge and culture, but the Mongol Empire also laid waste to their infrastructure and farms, which most likely had devastating impacts to their land (Doc 7). This would be a useful source of information about the Mongols, however, a Muslim person, whose views are most likely biased against the Mongol “infidels”, wrote
With the first wave of Spanish colonization of the New World, many indigenous peoples were killed and their lands were seized and their way of life was destroyed (Tindall 26-27). When the Spanish showed up, they greatly overpowered indigenous peoples. They had iron, seafaring vessels, firearms, explosives, and swords, with indigenous peoples had copper, dugout canoes, arrows, and tomahawks (Tindall 27). This is immoral because the indigenous peoples would have no chance against the Spanish, and killing the indigenous people was senseless since they couldn’t fight back well anyway.
Immigrants were confronted with just as much adversity as minorities and critics; like African Americans during the Great Migration (Document B), foreigners left what they knew best behind for better conditions. Refugees were also the victims of the Klu Klux Klan because they were not full-blooded Americans. The restrictions on the first amendment applied to the general populous (Document G), including aliens. They often took the blame for communist activity during the Palmer Raids, just as the union leaders of the country did. Clearly, immigrants did not flu under the radar during and just after the
During the 19th century, America promised land and opportunities for all. Though some groups of individuals left their homes willingly in order to take advantage of what America had to offer, others were forced to flee due to inhabitable conditions in their homelands. Both Chinese and Irish immigrants, however, were often disappointed with their treatment upon arrival in America. The Anglo-Saxons that first inhabited America viewed immigrants as uncivilized and quickly declared their superiority, forcing immigrants to work for them. They created laws that prevented groups from accessing similar privileges as them and racialized these groups based on their cultures and languages.
