The greatest joy for a man is to defeat his enemies, to drive them before him, to take from them all they possess, to see those they love in tears, to ride their horses, and to hold their wives and daughters in his arms.

Genghis Khan, born Temujin, was the founder and Great Khan (emperor) of the Mongol Empire, which became the largest contiguous empire in history after his demise.

He came to power by uniting many of the nomadic tribes of Mongolia. After founding the Mongol Empire and being proclaimed "Genghis Khan", he started the Mongol invasions that resulted in the conquest of much of Eurasia.. These campaigns were often accompanied by wholesale massacres of the civilian populations – especially in the Khwarezmian controlled lands. By the end of his life, the Mongol Empire occupied a substantial portion of Central Asia and China. Because of the death toll and methods used by Genghis, Genghis Khan and the Mongols he controlled are viewed in most of the lands he conquered as monsters.

Birth and Early Life

Genghis Khan was born near the Onon River in what is said to be 1162. He was born to Yesugei, the chief of the Borjigin clan, and his wife Hoelun. His name when he was born was Temlijun, which means iron. The common legend is that when he was born he was holding a clot of blood in his hand. At age 9, Yesugei took Temlijun to the Ongirrad tribe to marry someone from that tribe. Temlijun was chosen to marry Borte (his future wife). However, soon after, news came that his father, Yesugei was killed by the Tatars. This led to the family of Temlijun to be exiles, living off plants and small animals. During this period, Temlijun killed his brother Beghter due to him stealing all the meals. Soon after, the Tayichiud captured Temlijun and put him on a yoke, but Temlijun soon escaped. He then went to marry Borte in 1178. 2 years later, the Merekit tribe captured Borte and raided the camp of Temlijun. Temlijun allied with his fathers friend Toghril to rescue Borte. to be added
