In 21 short years he took over most of Asia from the Pacific Ocean to the Black Sea. He was cruel and violent. One of his most “ unique” ways of killing people was liquid metal into peoples eyes. In only one period of time he killed 700,000 people.
When he conquers a village he would cut off the heads of the poor and tortutre the rich to find where there money and values are .



It is said that,”His army was so vicious that it is said that if they had no water they would cut a horses veins and drink its blood”. When he was a child he killed his brother because he took a fish from him. His real name was Temujin. When he was young, a group of nomaddic turkish people killed his dad.He created one of the first international postal services.






Khan once said,” The greatest happiness is to scatter your enemy, to drive him before you to see his cities reduced to ashes, to see the ones that love him shrouded in tears, and to gather the bosom of his wives and daughters.” Some his highest ranked generals were before some of his greatest enemies. The Soviet Union tried to get rid of the memory of him. He died because of natural causes in 1227.
