History recalls Genghis Khan as a brutal bloodthirsty devil. But as well as being fearless he was charming. On top of personality he had an innate sense of who to trust. This allowed him to develop formidable allies. No surprise that United Northeast Asian nomadic tribes conquered most of Eurasia. Genghis Khan (1162-1227) earned the right to be called the Great Khan, Emperor of the Mongol Empire.

Along with conquering an empire Khan took 100s of women. This is likely the reason 12 percent of the world population are believed to have Genghis Khan DNA.
