- Genghis Khan :

Genghis Khan was born in north-central Mongolia around the year 1162. His name is "Temujin", after the leader of the Tatars, whom Genghis Khan's father managed to defeat and seize.

Genghis Khan is a Mongolian warrior and leader who founded the Mughal Empire, the largest empire in history, by eliminating the tribal leaders of Northeast Asia and uniting those tribes.

From his birth, his people predicted that he would be a great leader. As a young man, he was exposed to many horrors and difficulties, but with his toughness and intelligence he was able to face what he saw from those difficulties, and Temujin was distinguished by ferocity, brutality, and wisdom as well until he was able to unite the Mongolian tribes and establish the Mongol Empire.

Temujin had a terrifying army, as he mixed in his readiness between military tactics and ferocity and brutality in combat, and was able to fight his Tatar enemies, and avenge the death of his father by killing most of the Tatars without distinguishing between youth or Tatars.

Genghis Khan drafted a constitution for the country that emphasized the importance of adhering to the appropriate social behavior of individuals; Members of the state are prohibited from killing each other, theft, false testimony, and betrayal of spouses are prohibited, and anyone who violates these rules is punishable by death.

His reliance on the promotion of statesmen was not on lineage and dynasties, but their loyalty and competence.

Genghis Khan allowed religious freedom in the Mughal Empire, leaving individuals free to choose religion and worship, after fully submitting and offering loyalty to Genghis Khan.

After the Mongols were rival tribes, the Mughal Empire expanded during the reign of Genghis Khan to include Central Asia, that is, Iran, Afghanistan, and southern Russia.

Not only did this title have military and political connotations, but it also had spiritual connotations as Genghis Khan was considered a successor to God on Earth.

For him, this behavior angered him, so he ordered those armies to pursue the Khwarazmians, and they killed everything alive relentlessly, even the animals were not spared from this brutality.

In light of this, the Khwarezmian state collapsed before the Mongol armies city after city until Genghis Khan completely subjugated it.

The Mongol Empire, led by Genghis Khan, continued to expand until it took control of Central Asia

In 1227, the Mongol emperor Genghis Khan died and was buried in an unknown location, but some believe that he was buried near his birthplace in the mountains of northern Mongolia near the Onon River.
