  4. 4. During the 1200’s, this group of warriors called the Mongols invaded much of Asia, the Middle East and Eastern Europe. Everyone who fought against the Mongols were inferior of them. The Mongolian military was based upon quality not quantity considering there was only 700,000 of them. The weapons the Mongols used also helped them in taking over other countries.
  5. 5. One of these warriors happened to be Khan’s father, Genghis. Genghis was a very big, strong man. He was also smart with procedures.
  6. 6. “If you are going to be a Mongolian warrior someday, this is what you will need to wear.” said Genghis. - Heavy leather boots with felt socks. - Several layers of wool under coat. - Covering coat made out of sheepskin or an animal’s fur. - A fur hat with ear flaps over their helmet. - A metal helmet.

  9. 9. Genghis soon became very sick and he thought Khan was old enough to take his place. Khan’s mother was very worried about this but she knew he would go fight someday. “Mother, I will be alright. I have prepared myself for years for this day.” said Khan. Khan’s father on the other hand was very proud of his son for taking his place. “You remember everything I told you son.” said Genghis. “I will, father, I will.” said Khan.
  10. 10. Khan quickly advanced in his rank and was thought to be the most superior out of everyone. He eventually led the Mongols to invade numerous countries.
  11. 11. The war tactics he had learned from his father prepared him for anything. One night while Khan was resting, he heard a loud thud and a scream beside his head. He opened his eyes to see a javelin had pierced his fellow warrior across the leg. Khan scrambled to action, woke his men and assembled the catapult. They began launching stones at the approaching target.

  13. 13. When Khan got home, his mother hated to inform him that his father had passed away a year ago while he was away. This made Khan extremely sad. In remembrance of his father, Khan decided to change his name to Genghis Khan.
  14. 14. He became the greatest known leader of the Mongols. He led the Mongols to many successful invasions. Genghis Khan returned back to war announcing his new name. He continued to carry out what his father had told him and remained loyal to his country.
  15. 15. Yes, we all know this is not the story of Genghis Khan but I thought it was a cute way of telling the story.
