Genghis Khan alias Temujin was the fearsome Mongolian warrior of the 13th century, and may have done more than rule the largest empire in the world; according to a recently published genetic study, he may have helped populate it too.

He was the first ‘Great Khan (Emperor)’ of the Mogol Empire. He was the owner of the huge property. According to calculations, the total property of Genghis, including movable and immovable, is worth 120 million dollars. In other words, the total assets of the world Genghis Khan’s current billionaires will not be so much.

If Genghis were alive today, he would be the richest man in the world. According to calculations, the current value of Genghis’ net worth is three times the total assets of all the companies in the world. Even America could be bought with his total wealth. Genghis is considered to be one of the greatest and richest rulers in history. During his reign, Genghis conquered more than 1.5 million square miles across Asia and Europe. Of this, China alone had 9 million square miles of land.

How was Genghis Khan so rich?

Genghis Khan’s empire spread across large swaths of land. Many merchants have carried expensive and rare items to Genghis Khan’s court. The amount of gold in Genghis’ treasury was also huge. His treasury contained more than two lakh tons of gold. The current value of the gold deposited by Genghis is more than 10 lakh crore rupees. Genghis also conquered lands rich in precious metal mines in China and Mongolia. There were even uranium mines on land owned by Genghis.

Genghis had a large number of diamonds in his treasury. The current value of the total diamonds owned by Genghis is one trillion dollars. Genghis built many forts during his reign. He also conquered many forts. The total number of forts that Genghis had was 1050. Genghis had a total of 270,000 horses in his stable. The current price of each horse is more than four lakh rupees. Genghis Khan was born in 1162 in a place near Ulaanbaatar, the present capital of Mongolia.

Legacy of Genghis Khan

To have such a startling impact on a population required a special set of circumstances, all of which are met by Genghis Khan and his male relatives, the authors note in the study published in the American Journal of Human Genetics.

Khan’s empire at the time of his death extended across Asia, from the Pacific Ocean to the Caspian Sea. His military conquests were frequently characterized by the wholesale slaughter of the vanquished. His descendants extended the empire and maintained power in the region for several hundred years, in civilizations in which harems and concubines were the norms. And the males were markedly prolific.

Khan’s eldest son, Tushi, is reported to have had 40 sons. Documents written during or just after Khan’s reign say that after a conquest, looting, pillaging, and rape were the spoils of war for all soldiers, but that Khan got first to pick of the beautiful women. His grandson, Kubilai Khan, who established the Yuan Dynasty in China, had 22 legitimate sons and was reported to have added 30 virgins to his harem each year.

“The historically documented events accompanying the establishment of the Mongol empire would have contributed directly to the spread of this lineage,” the authors conclude.

Genghis Khan’s Death

Genghis Khan died in August 1227, during the fall of Yinchuan, which is the capital of Western Xia. Years before his death, Genghis Khan asked to be buried without markings, according to the customs of his tribe.

Before Genghis Khan died, he assigned Ögedei Khan as his successor. Genghis Khan left behind an army of more than 129,000 men; 28,000 were given to his various brothers and his sons.
