In the lifetime of one man, the Mongol dominions grew from a malestorm of warring clans to an Empire stretching from the Yellow Sea to the Caspian Sea. After the death of is founder, Genghis Khan, the Mongols succeeded in what the empires of Alexander and Attila failed: it continued to expand. In a period of 80 years, it reached an eventual size five times that of Alexander's Empire, becoming the largest continuous land Empire in history.


No other conquest has ever been as spectacular as that of the Mongols. However, the Mongol Empire did not come about without bloodshed; and thus their apparent brutality and destructiveness has never been forgotten. But it is nearly impossible to whether the Mongol Empire was for the better or worse.
