Write a short note on carrier of genghis khan

Genghis Khan was born in 1162 in present day Mongolia. His father was a tribal chief who died during his childhood. He had a difficult childhood following his father's death when he was 12. His family was abandoned by his tribe and they had to live in the wilds amidst great poverty. But Genghis Khan managed to reclaim power. He then united many of the nomadic tribes of Mongolia and proclaimed himself Khan, or the ruler of the Mongols, in 1206. He then initiated a series of campaigns that ended up conquering most of Eurasia. During his lifetime, he defeated the Western Xia and Jin dynasties and the Khwarezmia kingdom that ruled over present day Iran. Many of his conquests were marked by large scale massacre of civilians. Genghis Khan died in 1227. By the time of his death, the Mongols ruled over large parts of Central Asia and China.

Mongol leader Genghis Khan (1162-1227) rose from humble beginnings to establish the largest land empire in history. After uniting the nomadic tribes of the Mongolian plateau, he conquered huge chunks of central Asia and China. His descendents expanded the empire even further, advancing to such far-off places as Poland, Vietnam, Syria and Korea. At their peak, the Mongols controlled between 11 and 12 million contiguous square miles, an area about the size of Africa. Many people were slaughtered in the course of Genghis Khan’s invasions, but he also granted religious freedom to his subjects, abolished torture, encouraged trade and created the first international postal system. Genghis Khan died in 1227 during a military campaign against the Chinese kingdom of Xi Xia. His final resting place remains unknown.
