The Mongols

Throughout the history of northern China, they had been attacked by nomadic people. These attacks became more frequent during the Song Dynasty. In the 1200's a nomadic people called the Mongols burst forth from Central Asia and would create the largest land empire in history. Temujin or Genghis Khan, led the Mongols into an enormous empire of their own in which they would rule from 1206 to 1368. Not only were they amazing battle statistics, but they also ruled in such a manner that people some what enjoyed being under their rule. A great website on almost everything about the Mongols.
