Product description

Product Description

Genghis Khan’s name at birth was Temujin. After he had unified all the tribes in Mongolia a Congress or Khuralty was held in 1206. The representatives of all the tribes voted him Universal Ruler and King of Great Mongolia, Chingis Khan (this is the correct Mongolian pronunciation of Genghis Khan). Chingis means Great Sea or Ocean - this is symbolic of vast space. Khan is Mongolian for King. For the Mongolian tribes this meant he was King of the world.

There have been many attempts made to describe how Genghis Khan looked, during his lifetime it was said that he forbade anyone from making a drawing, painting or statue of him, that this was based on his belief in the eternal blue sky and God therein. There have been many likenesses of him created over the centuries from the European perspective as well as the Southern Asian perspective, The 14th century Persian Chronicler Rashid al-Din described him as having green eyes and reddish hair, yet he had never seen or met the Khan - it is thought he based his assumptions on tales handed down over the ages.

In modern Mongolia you can see all types of people from very tall robust and muscular to fairly petite skinny people. The color of their hair ranges from ash blonde at young ages, through reddish brown and dark black. Eye colors of Blue, Gray, Green and Dark Brown. Eye shapes range from angled Wolf like eyes to round large Sheep type eyes. One feature that holds true across most all people of Mongolian descent are high cheek bones. Mongolians features have been carved and contoured by the harsh conditions from extreme cold, sand laden winds and extremely dry climate.
