His goal was to unite the tribes of Mongolia into one nation. The two main qualities that Temujin possessed were his outstanding military tactics and merciless brutality. His first attack was on the Tartar to avenge his father’s death. He ordered the death of every male less than 3 feet tall to be killed. Next he proceeded with attacking the Taichi'ut, who he easily defeated with a massive cavalry attacks. He ordered all the Taichi'ut Chiefs to be boiled alive. This shows how merciless Temujin was. One major reason for his success was his large spy network that used new technologies from his conquered enemies to keep Temujin informed on his enemies. With this Temujin knew about his enemies motives and was able to come up with brilliant strategies to counter them. He had an army of 80,000 well trained soldiers who he was able to command with the complicated signaling methods. All his soldier had been equipped with bow, arrows, shield, dagger, and lasso. They also had a waterproof saddle bag that carried food and clothes. The soldiers could use the water proof saddle bags as a life preserver when crossing rivers or lakes. The cavalry had a small sword, body armor, javelins, a battle-ax or mace, and a lance with a hook to pull enemies off their horses. The cavalry were adept at controlling the horses with their feet which meant that their hands were free to shoot arrows or javelins. Not only this, but the army was also followed by oxcarts carrying food and a shaman for the armies’ spiritual needs. With such an impressive army Temujin captured many nearby tribes and the rest of the tribes of Mongolia named him “Genghis Khan” or the “Universal Ruler”. This title was spiritually important because this placed him the stature of God, which meant that defying Genghis Khan was equal to defying God. With such a large empire Geghis Khan attacked the Xi Xia Dynasty which got him a wealth of rice fields. He then started attack the Muslim empires of the west. Initially he wanted to set up trade with Muslim world when he sent diplomat to discuss this issues the Khwarizm Dynasty thought it was spies and sent the diplomat’s head back to Genghis Khan. This enraged him and in his wrath he destroyed the entire Khwarizm Dynasty. During this time Genghis Khan connected major trade routes of Asian and China with that of Europe’s, this is known as the Pax Mongolia. Genghis Khan was later buried without any trace according to his clan’s tradition.
