Genghis Khan (1167?-1227)
Mongol conqueror, whose nomad armies created a vast empire under his control, from China to Russia.
Genghis Khan original name was Temujin and he was born near Lake Baykal in Russia, the son of Yesukai (died 1180?), a Mongol chief and ruler of a large region between the Amur River and the Great Wall of China.
At the age of 13, Temujin succeeded his father as tribal chief. His early reign was marked by successive revolts of his subject tribes and an intense struggle to retain his leadership, but the Mongol ruler soon demonstrated his military genius and conquered not only his intractable subjects but his hostile neighbors as well.
By 1206 Temujin was master of almost all of Mongolia. In that year, a convocation of the subjugated tribes proclaimed him Genghis Khan (Chinese chêng-sze, precious warrior; Turkish khån, “lord”), leader of the united Mongol and Tatar tribes; the city of Karakorum was designated his capital.
When Genghis Khan died, his empire ranged from the Yellow Sea to the Black Sea; it continued to expand after his death to extend from Hungary to Korea.
