Descriere
If you want to discover the captivating life of Genghis Khan, then keep reading...Around the year 1162, near the modern capital of Mongolia, a baby boy was born into a fractious and violent world. The birth of this child must have caused quite a stir among the members of the nomadic tribe that he had been born into; word soon traveled that the son of Yes gei, the Borjigin tribal leader, had been born clutching a blood clot in his tiny hand. Mongol folklore hailed this as a sign that the child would grow up to be a great leader of men, but perhaps history would interpret the baby's gruesome prize as a foreshadowing of the bloodshed that would accompany his life and his legacy. The story of Tem jin, and Genghis Khan as he would later be known, is a story about stories. We have few original sources to tell us about his life, and the sources we do have are often contradictory or untrustworthy, so historians have had to piece together the story of Genghis Khan and fill in the blanks. What you will discover in this book is a combination of historical fact, expert conjecture, and myths and legends, filtered through the changing eyes of history and retold through many generations. There are many things we simply do not know about the enigmatic figure of Genghis Khan. There are many things that we think we know that may ultimately prove to be untrue. What is important is the story. Just as the young Tem jin must have sat around a campfire to be regaled by stories of his ancestral wolf heritage, we now sit around this virtual campfire to share the story of Genghis Khan. In Genghis Khan: A Captivating Guide to the Founder of the Mongol Empire and His Conquests Which Resulted in the Largest Contiguous Empire in History, you will discover topics such as The Mongolian Steppe Tem jin Becoming Genghis Khan Building the Mongol Empire Life in Genghis Khan's Empire Military Genius Innovation Death and Succession The Mongol Empire After Genghis Khan Pax Mongolica The End of an Empire A
