Hi guys, I'm Bolormaa. I am a 13 year old Mongol and behind me is my village. Today I will be telling you about Mongol government and leaders.
First off, our very first leader's name was Genghis Khan. He started to rule in 1206 and was a very strong leader that conquered many other countries and expanded his empire to the biggest land empire ever.
Genghis Khan also unified the Mongol clans and organized Mongol laws to create a new legal code. The army owned by Genghis Khan was the strongest army in the era of his time.
Genghis Khan was known for his cruel fighting and his use of terror. He conquered many cities, looted and burned them. He and his army treated the conquered people very poorly and sometimes they joined his army.
Soon after he died his empire split into several areas. Each area that was split up was handed down to one of his sons. With the empire being split the army needed to be too with the areas. Another leader, Kublai Khan, was now the leader of Mongolia. In 1264, Kublai established Khanbaliq the capital of Mongolia.
One day Kublai decided he wanted to rule all of China so he brought an end to the Song Dynasty and declared himself emperor and made the Yuan Dynasty that he ruled. Like his grandpa, Kublai was a strong leader and conquered many areas.
