This is Kublai Khan. He is the first non- Chinese ruler of China.
He installed fear in his subjects. He even had two mechanical lions that looked like lions, guarding his throne.
Kublai Khan created a postal system so that he could send messages from place to place quickly. The deliverers road on horses that were changed periodically through the trip.
Kublai Khan ordered for there to be Yurts build in the Imperial garden to make the Mongols happy. He also ordered for there to be a square of grass from Mongolia, because the mongols were getting homesick. This helped him to keep control, because happy subjects equal a smaller chance of a rebellion.
He had a great army, and he had a lot of loyal followers. If he had loyal followers that liked him, then they could convince the people that were against Kublai to like him.
That is how Kublai Khan kept control over his people.
