Ghengis Khan (c. 1162-1227)Download nowEnlargeShow similar images

Title: Ghengis Khan (c. 1162-1227)

Description: Ghengis Khan (c.1162-1227), founder and first emperor (1206-1227) of the Mongol Empire (13th-14th centuries), which began in Central Asia and eventually spread from Korea to Eastern Europe. He united the nomadic tribes of northeast Asia before setting out to conquer all lands before him. Before attacking any nation, however, Ghengis Khan recruited with rich payments many spies from the countries he planned to conquer, learning of the enemy's strengths and weaknesses. His accurate system of communication was rooted to thousands of post-riders, who rode by horse along all known caravan trails, each at twenty-five mile intervals, and providing detailed information on all traffic, military and civilian activities. His riders, according to the journals of Marco Polo, could cover 1,500 miles within ten days. Much of his military success is attributed to his excellent Intelligence and communications systems.
