Genghis Khan was born "Temujin" in Mongolia around 1162. He married at age 16, but had many wives during his lifetime. At 20, he began building a large army with the intent to destroy individual tribes in Northeast Asia and unite them under his rule. He was successful; the Mongol Empire was the largest empire in the world before the British Empire, and lasted well after his own death in 1227.
Born in north central Mongolia around 1162, Genghis Khan was originally named "Temujin" after a Tatar chieftain that his father, Yesukhei, had captured. Young Temujin was a member of the Borjigin tribe and a descendant of Khabul Khan, who briefly united Mongols against the Jin (Chin) Dynasty of northern China in the early 1100s. According to the "Secret History of the Mongols" (a contemporary account of Mongol history), Temujin was born with a blood clot in his hand, a sign in Mongol folklore that he was destined to become a leader. His mother, Hoelun, taught him the grim reality of living in turbulent Mongol tribal society and the need for alliances.
When Temujin was 9, his father took him to live with the family of his future bride, Borte. On the return trip home, Yesukhei encountered members of the rival Tatar tribe, who invited him to a conciliatory meal, where he was poisoned for past transgressions against the Tatars. Upon hearing of his father's death, Temujin returned home to claim his position as clan chief. However, the clan refused to recognize the young boy's leadership and ostracized his family of younger brothers and half-brothers to near-refugee status. The pressure on the family was great, and in a dispute over the spoils of a hunting expedition, Temujin quarreled with and killed his half-brother, Bekhter, confirming his position as head of the family.
I'm a REALLY REALLY big fan of Genghis Khan , My father always had a statue of Genghis from as long back as I can remember. What fascinates me the most about him and his over all strategy is MOBILITY. Genghis used this to great effect, his army the men were able to fire their bow and arrows riding @ full gallop forward but also backwards. I believe this the key to life in what ever you do. Do it so well that u can do it from right hand or left forwards or backwards rain or shine it should not matter.
Also his army each man had 3 mayors, and when the mayor they were riding became weak, the drank its blood and cooked the meat, leaving nothing to waste. Rumors of this passed along and the psychological fear this brought their enemies was intense.
Power flows in this specific order
Speed (mobility and ability to adapt) These 1st two traits can literally enlarge a man
Then Brute strength
I have learned all this information from the 33 strategies of war (a book i have read cover to cover over 10 times) the best strategy book written since the art of war
from the author of the 48 laws of power , mastery , and the art of seduction robert green.
