The Yuan dynasty lasted officially from 1271 to 1368. It was also called the Mongol dynasty. It was ruled by the Borjigin family. They invaded and ruled during their dynasty. In the historiography of China, it followed the Song Dynasty an preceded the Ming Dynasty.
The Mongols are properly known as the Mongolic people. Although Mongols are found prominently in Mongolia, they live in minority groups throughout Northern Asia, Russia, and China. Mongolic people belong to the Buryat ethnic group. They speak many languages known as the Mongolic languages.
