I don’t know much about him BUT I do know that he changed the face and complexion of history with his conquest.

My adoptive father who was a big fan of steak tartare always claimed that it was Genghis Khan’s famous cavalry that had come up with it — them putting raw steaks under their saddles in the morning and then eating them later in the day, the only heat coming from the friction created between the saddle and the horse.

I was curious as to how big the Mongol Empire was at its height. Appears it was ONLY surpassed by ONE other Emphire — MY, glorious British Empire. {SMILE}
