Mongolian ruler Genghis Khan created the largest empire in the world, the Mongol Empire, by destroying tribes in Northeast Asia. Genghis Khan real first name was "Temujin", born in Mongolia around 1162. He married at 16 years old , but had many wives during the span of his life. At 20 years old, he began building a large army with the intention to destroy individual tribes in Northeast Asia and unite them under his rule, in which he was successful.

He was also captured in a raid and temporarily enslaved. He escaped with the help of a captor, and joined a fighting unit.

Through outstanding tactics and brutality, Temujin avenged his father's murder. Genghis Khan died in 1227. The exact cause of his death is unknown.The Mongol Empire was the largest empire in the world before the British Empire, and lasted well after his own death.

The Mongol Empire existed during the 13th and 14th centuries and was the largest land empire in history. The empire connected the Mongol and Turkic tribes of historical Mongolia under the leadership of Genghis Khan, who was the ruler of all Mongols. The empire grew rapidly under his rule, and then under his descendants, who sent invasions in every direction. The vast and large empire connected the east with the west with an enforced Mongol Peace which allowed trade, technologies, and more to be exchanged across the lands.

The primary weapon for the Mongolian army was the Mongol Bow. This was the most used weapon because it was fast, powerful, and made for hunting and archery. It was very rear to see someone using a Mongol now during a battle or war, considering the other options. Mongol swords were slightly curved, and used for slashing. It was also used to cut and thrust,and due to its shape, it was it easier to use from being on the back of a horse.
