My name is Temujin. Later I will become known as Genghis Kahn.

  • Like many of the nomads of Mongolia, Temujin's early life was difficult. His father arranged a marriage for him, at nine years of age. He was delivered by his father to the family of his future wife Börte, who was a member of another the tribe. As his father returned home, he was poisoned and died. Upon learning about his father’s death, Temujin returned home to claim his father's position as chieftain of the tribe; however, his father's tribe refused to be led by a boy so young.
  • For the next several years, he lived in poverty, surviving on wild fruits and ox carcasses, marmots, hunted by Temujin and his brothers. It was during one hunting excursion that 10-year-old Temujin killed his half-brother, Behter, during a fight which resulted from a dispute over hunting spoils. He later returned to his wife’s tribe, at the age of 12, in order to maintain an alliance.

  • While still a teenager, Temujinwas able to unite the Mongol clans. Together, they began to overpower other warring tribes in the region, among them the Tatar, Naiman, and Merkid. Overcoming rival tribes was a long struggle, but eventually the Mongols dominated the region. Later, tribal leaders agreed to peace and bestowed on Temujin the title of "Genghis Khan," which means "universal ruler."

  • Genghis built his army by forming strong alliances, rewarding loyalty and bringing defeated warriors into his band. The army used specialized horses, bows and arrows, and swords. His campaigns were often accompanied by wholesale massacres of the civilian populations.

  • The five domestic animals most important in the Mongolian Empire were horses, cattle, camels, sheep, and goats. These animals were valued for their milk and hides were used for clothing and shelter.
  • There was a uniform type of Mongol dress though variations according to wealth, status, and gender did occur. These differences included the design, color, cut, and elaborateness of the outfit.
  • Mongolian women had the power to influence society. Even though men were dominant in society, many turned to women in their lives for advice.
