Genghis Khan, born Temüjin, was the founder of the largest contiguous empire in history – the Mongol Empire. His father, the head of a nomadic Mongol tribe, was killed by Tatars when Temüjin was only nine, and his family was abandoned by their clan. Temüjin’s rise to power began soon after a shaman by the name of Kokochu declared that he had been chosen by the Eternal Blue Sky to rule the world. By 1206, he had united all of the fractured tribes living on the Mongol plains and assumed a new title, “Genghis Khan”, signifying his position as universal ruler. Genghis Khan quickly embarked on a series of successful invasions into China and Central Asia. He was a brilliant military leader and shrewd politician, allowing him to consolidate the lands he conquered under Mongol leadership. Genghis Khan died in 1227, after conquering the Western Xia dynasty. According to legend, his body was returned to Mongolia by a mounted funeral escort that killed anyone and anything that crossed their path on the way to their destination. Once the burial was complete, the escort then stampeded over the burial grounds, planted trees to further conceal the site, and finally committed suicide to ensure that the secret would never be revealed.
