The Mongolian Empire was one of the most successful conquest of  many empires during  the 11th and 12th century.  The success is due to their cruel and punishing tactics. The Mongols took no hostages or compromises they only wanted the valuables, land, and the women. This made no country safe from the Mongolian Empire.  The Mongols also had plenty of advantages over who they deemed was an enemy, which helped expand their Empire and conquest. One advantage was a new take on the bow and arrow that allowed the user to be more proficient using the bow on horseback.  This made the Mongolian Empire  force to be reckoned with, from the viewpoint of  other countries that were susceptible to invasion. Those countries were high value targets for the Mongols to invade. Though some countries took preventive measures to protect themselves from the Mongols, but the Mongols still tried or did take over the country. One of these countries that took these measures is China. The Chinese built the Great Wall of China to try to keep the Mongolian Empire out which worked some but not like they hoped. Any county would be scared of people like the Mongolians. The Mongols were cruel savages they had no regard for even women and children. The Mongols would expand their Empire by forcing the women of the raided villages to have their children, then the Mongols would take all the children and raise them as part of the Mongolian empire. The Mongols also had an abnormality with their Y- chromosome that made them stronger than the other Asian population.  This gene was spread more when the Mongols forced the women to have their children. This caused the Mongolian empire to spread vastly. The Mongols knew they would need as many people as they could have to control the large amount of land they were in possession of in Asia. All of these factors played a part in the Mongol’s conquest, and made them one of the most feared and powerful empires.

Genghis Khan was the most known leader of the Mongolian Empire. He was noted for combining all the sub-tribes into the Mongolian Empire we know about today. Since the tribes of Mongolia were in great conflict with each other, Khan knew he must combine the tribes together to begin the conquest. So Genghis Khan set out his quest to gain the trust of the tribes to make a military powerhouse that was a force to be reckoned with. This is what made Genghis Khan the most well known leader of the Mongolian Empire. Khan knew he could get more people into the tribes by force breeding. He encouraged men and women to have more and as many kids as they could. Genghis Khan was also a master of war. He knew horseback combat would throw the enemies off guard, and also if those horsemen used a form of the bow Khan found most effective on horseback. Genghis Khan was blood thirsty in his actions across Asia. He took no hostages and did not negotiate any surrenders. If he wanted the land he saw it fit to take it any way willing. Khan started his conquest through small villages taking them over and forcing the people in them to join the Mongolian Empire making the captives Mongolian people. 

The Mongols knew if they were going to take over all of Asia they would need any advantage they could get. Their answer was horseback combat. They used the horses as quicker transportation and as a war tool. At the time horses were not seen often in combat.  The Mongols saw this to their advantage using the horses to get behind their enemies to catch them by surprise and to split their fighting forces into two separate ones. But with the addition of horses to their combat forces came new weaponry like new bows and curved swords to cut through the enemies with ease.  The Mongols also used horses to travel vast distances quicker than on foot. The Mongols also took on the task of protecting the Silk Road which was the largest trading route at the time. Horses made this easier to patrol and keep the traveling merchants safe from the pirating thieves. The Mongols chose to protect the Silk Road because they knew trade and dispersion of goods were one of the ways to stay prosperous as an empire.
