Storyboard Text

  • I am Genghis Khan. The isolation of Mongolia, my home land allows my people to grow stronger and our technologies to gradually improve.
  • Our people were trained to ride horses at about the age of 4. The saddle and stirrups allowed us to wield a bow and arrow which could penetrate enemies from a great distance.
  • After uniting the nomadic tribes of the Mongolian plateau, I conquered huge chunks of central Asia and China. My descendants expanded the empire even further advancing to such far-off places Poland, Vietnam, Syria, and Korea. At our peak, the Mongols controlled between 11 and 12 million contiguous square miles, and area about the size of africa.
  • The Mongols failed to take over Japan, because the great armada sailed out into open waters strait into the arms of an approaching typhoon.
  • We the Mongols increased communication throughout Eurasia by developing a pony express like system of weigh stations with horses and riders that could quickly relay information
  • We were tolerant of different religions.
  • We spread different cultural cuisines across the silk road.
  • My name is Kublai and I was thought of as the greatest Yuan Dynasty ruler. I am a grandson of Genghis Khan. I had a comparatively long rule and reformed the empire to increase his power and make the empire prosper. I conquered the Song Empire and Dali kingdom.
