The Universal Ruler, Genghis Khan, stood on the battlefield with the rising sun illuminating the millions of imbrued bodies of the dead. Khan, his features defined with pride and triumph, snatches yet another victory from the hands of his foes. Genghis Khan’s unyielding determination was of a man who would never stop until the world was under one rule, his rule. Despite that, his time was cut short, but his legacy would outlive him even after the Mongol Empire fell. In brief, the Mongols succeeded primarily because of their most famous leader, Genghis Khan, who led them not just to victory, but who assisted in the development of our world.
In 1368 the Chinese were temporarily overthrown by the Mongols. The Mongols were just another nomadic tribe. They were quit brutal though. And because of this, many believe that this was the reason the Yuan dynasty fell.
Thesis: The Mongol leader Genghis Khan had an intense influence on the modern world. He may have been one of the greatest military leaders of all time, and he was both the father of the organization of modern warfare and a role model for many rulers. Early life and Origin Like most ruthless emperors “ you can blame it all on a bad childhood.” he was “born in Temujn, Genghis had the bad luck to be born to the most outcast tribe in the most remote part of the Mongolian Steppes right on the border with Siberia.” (“Genghis Khan”)
The Mongols were savages not ceasing at any expense to conquer land. The Mongols had distinctive war strategies to corner their enemies, conquer them, and slaughter them. Despite the fact that the Mongols did much damage, they refine the nations they prevailed. Even in a Mongols' personal life there are numerous guidelines that should be obeyed. In spite of the fact that the Mongols may appear to be merciless murderers there is another side them.
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.
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.
How Should the Mongols be Remembered? Eight hundred years ago a small tribe from the steppes of Central Asia was so successful conquering a significant amount of the world, but their victories was not very pleasant. They conquered most of Asia, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe and nothing has even been done before the Mongols established their army creating a massive empire in such little time. Although they were very victorious and successful their reputation was not pretty and other people called them "barbarians" which is a negative term referring to people who lived beyond the reach of the civilization and they were known as being evil and savage. The Mongols were nomads who lived in yurts and had few material possession knowing little about mining and were not interested in farming.
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.
Strength, ruthless, fearless, these words can describe the Mongol Empire. They put a mark on history which shaped the whole basis of interaction between civilizations. One expedition is the Sack of Baghdad. The Mongol sack of Baghdad of 1258 is a turning point in world history because it destroyed the Islamic Golden Age by destroying their society, killing their citizens and their knowledge.
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.
Alexander the Great, the man who spread Hellenism, and Genghis Khan, the infamous savage, are not only viewed as exceedingly different, but are in fact polar opposites. While some views of the leaders may be inaccurate and biased, such as the belief that Genghis is inhumane and savage, the differences between their lives and beliefs are still vast. Alexander was a great general, and lead many people to fight for him, however he lacked in domestic leadership and stability within his empire. Genghis on the other hand was a fierce fighter, who obliterated his enemies, but kept a stable and safe empire for his people. Alexander the Great and Genghis Khan are vastly different due to how and why they lead their people, and fought against others.
How Barbaric Were The Barbarians? Does strategy excuse barbaric behavior? The Mongols were powerful conquerors and warriors of Asia, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe. Eight hundred years ago in the 13th century The Mongols gained the name “barbarians” for their harsh battle tactics, laws and punishment. So how barbaric were The Mongols really?
