The Rest Is History

166. Genghis Khan: Lord of the Mongols

The Rest Is History

The second of two episodes on Genghis Khan, listen to yesterday's pod (165. The Rise of Genghis Khan) before listening to this one!


'An almost sacral figure' in the words of Tom Holland, Genghis Khan has become the paramount leader of the Mongols. 


Can we call his kingdom a 'Mongol Empire'? What was his aim? And why are some now calling him an 'eco-warrior'?!
