Kublai khan's method of controlling the Yuan Dynasty
I'm finally Emperor. I plan to make improvements in the Yuan Dynasty so I can maintain control of my dynasty
I made a bodyguard of 12,000 horsemen to protect my family day and night.
My people missed their old ways of life so I built them yurts like their ancestors lived in and gave them magnificent furniture, and brought grass from the steppe and put it in my palace
I created the postal system so I could receive and send information quickly.
I was very interested in science and built a tall tower in the Imperial City as an observatory. I also invited a famous astronomer from Persia to Dadu. The astronomer brought me instruments for observing the sun, moon, stars, and planets.
These improvements in the Yuan Dynasty have helped me maintain leadership and control of my dynasty.
