Those are interesting links that you gave. It is fascinating to read the bad mouthing of one of the greatest man in our known history.
gave a more balanced portrait of Genghis Khan. He could not get to do all that he did if he was
just a good fighter and general.
The empire that he created at its peak was bigger than 3 of the largest empires combined, Alexander, the Holy Roman Empire and the British Empire.
I knew of his meeting with Chang Chun but I did not know his letter was preserved. That facet of Genghis Khan as a philosopher gave me a nice
surprise when I read that recently. I am happy that pleased you too.
