PostSubject: Mongol Empire   Sun Oct 31, 2010 2:02 pm

The Mongol Empire (Mongolian: About this sound Монголын Эзэнт Гүрэн (help·info), Mongolyn Ezent Güren or Их Mонгол улс, Ikh Mongol Uls) was a massive empire during the 13th and 14th centuries. Beginning in Central Asia, it eventually spanned from the Korean Peninsula to Eastern Europe, covered Siberia in the north and had expanded southward into Southeast Asia, the Indian subcontinent, and the Middle East. It is commonly referred to as the largest contiguous empire in the history of the world. At its greatest extent it spanned 6000 miles, covering over 33,000,000 km2 (12,741,000 sq mi),[1] 22% of the Earth's total land area, and holding sway over a population of 100 million.

The Mongol Empire emerged from the unification of Mongol and Turkic tribes in modern day Mongolia under the leadership of Genghis Khan, who was proclaimed ruler of all Mongols in 1206. The Empire grew rapidly under his leadership and then that of his descendants, who sent invasions in every direction.[2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10] Under the Mongols, new technologies, various commodities and ideologies were disseminated and exchanged across Eurasia.
