Manila Bulletin: Never on a Sunday – Genghis Khan

In 1162, a boy named Timujin was born in the Khentii mountains of Mongolia. After he was able to unite the Mongol tribes in 1190, he became known as Genghis Khan (emperor) after he was proclaimed by his fellow tribesmen. He then began the Mongolian invasion that resulted in the conquest of most of EuroAsia. By August, 1227, the Mongol empire stretched from the Caspian Sea to the Sea of China and Japan. His descendants expanded the empire across most of Europe by conquest or by making vassal states of what are now China, Korea, the Caucasus, Central Asia, great portions of Eastern Europe, Russia, and the Middle East.
