Genghis Khan, from humble beginnings as the son of a nomadic chief on the vast Mongolian steppes, would become one of the most globally recognized names in history books around the world. Not only did he found what was to become the largest empire in the history of the world, he also revolutionized warfare and made better use of horses and cavalry than perhaps any other military commander in history. What's more, despite being a ruthless and bloodthirsty tyrant, he also introduced the world to progressive policies of tolerance that were practically unheard of during his lifetime in the 13th century. All together, the exploits, innovations, and conquests of Genghis Khan have made him one of the most important and influential figures in world history.
