What did the mongols do that was good?
The Mongols were a nomadic tribe centrally located in Central Asia. They were known as barbarians throughout the landmass of Eurasia and were known for killing hundreds of tho…usands of people. However, they did bring some positive changes, including the re-opening of the Silk Road and the beginning of the upcoming Global Age. In 1206, Genghis Khan attained leadership of a large number of tribes in what is now Mongolia, to form a great and powerful empire. The Mongols were cruel and vicious warriors. They destroyed anything that stood in the way of their becoming a successful empire. They conquered China and other regions throughout Asia and parts of modern day Europe. After more than a century of being the world's largest empire, the Mongol domain was finally dissolved with the breakup of the Yuan dynasty in 1368.

tents called yurts
its was good because everything was kept in order but it was also strict
Mongol originally meant one of the native Mongolian people i.e. like Genghis (Chingis) Khan. This did not mean that they were Mongolian (like a Chinese person doesn't have to …live in China to be Chinese but to be a Chinese citizen (or a Mongolian) you have to live in the country. A Mongol is like a 'Native American' and a Mongolian is like an 'American'. Also, during the Victorian and later periods, the supposedly superior white people needed a reason for the fact their children were born with Down syndrome, and they decided, as some of these children exhibited Asian-like facial qualities, that the only 'logical' reason was that the ancestors of the woman giving birth must in the past have been raped by a Mongol, and this was the bad Mongol blood corrupting the child. Thus retarded children or those with Down syndrome were often known as Mongols or just Mongs.
Yes very. They were known as the bane of christianity as they moved in to eirope on their military campiagns and killed Christians. Generally, people throughout history have …used the term "barbaric" to mean "something different than the way we do things", implying that the "barbaric" way was inferior. Which, of course, was not strictly true. In that sense, the mongols were "barbaric", because they most certainly were very different than the European cultures of the time. In the other sense of the word "barbaric", meaning "cruel or brutal", the tactics of the Mongols could certainly be characterized as such. The Mongols were famous for butchering to the last person any city which refused to surrender to it. That is, the Mongol army would arrive at a city, and demand it's surrender. If it refused, and the Mongols later captured the city (which, happend the vast majority of the time), then Mongols would then kill everyone inside. Even if the city surrendered immediately, the typical Mongol response would be to depopulate the city (move everyone out) into the local countryside, raze the entire city to the ground, then sell large portions of the remaining population into slavery, while forcing the rest into agricultural work.
The Mongols were a nomadic group of people that originated in Central Asia. Their leader, Genghis Khan, organized the people and they used their superb horsemanship and unique… military tactics to conquer others, and eventually they established the largest empire in the world to this day. The empire spanned from China to the East to Turkey in the West, and from Russia in the north to Tibet in the South. Eventually the empire dissolved into four separate states, that were all trade friendly, but were not necessarily politically united. There was the Great Khanite, or the Yuan Dynasty in China; The Golden Horde, in present day Russia. The Chang'a'tai in Tibet/Central Asia; and the Ilkhanate in Persia. Each adapted to the cultures of the native people were there, except for in China they expelled all Chinese from the city and would not let the Chinese learn their language. Chinese people do not refer to the Yuan Dynasty as one of their dynasties, as they consider it more of a foreign rule period (read about it in the establishment of the Ming Dynasty).
The Mongols, a tribe of nomadic people around 500 BCE lived in Asia and were traders and herdsmen. They herded sheep and traded horses with the ancient Chinese and Persians. I…n the summer, they moved with their herds across the vast steppes of Asia, seeking fresh pasture land with the help of their dogs. They traveled in small groups composed of only two or three families and had to travel 20 miles before they ran into another family group.
There were many rulers of the Mongol Empire during it's history. First was Genghis (or Chingis) Khan, who formed the empire, then his son Ogedai, who expanded it, followed by …Ogedai's son Guyuk. When Guyuk died, Genghis's fourth son's son Mongke came to power, followed by his younger brother Kublai (or Kubla, as he is the one in the poem Kubla Khan). Following this there were many other leaders but they only ruled the empire in name and couldn't control it all. well for sure Genghis khan was one and his four sons
The Mongols invaded a vast area of land, reaching the Arctic, Indian, Pacific oceans and the Mediterranean. They had many campaigns against the Chinese, lasting from 1206-1279…. They overran Central Asia and Persia, which was under the Khwarazemain Shah, the major Muslim opponent to Genghis Khan. They subsequently invaded Afghanistan and Pakistan, and were to make several attempts on India. They pushed further into the Islamic world and ended the Abbasid Caliphate which once stretched from Morocco to Ferghana. Syria was conquered as well as the Holy Land for a while but any campaigns further towards Africa or Arabia failed but Tamerlane did defeat the Egyptian Mamluks decisively.. South East Asia and Japan were in the interests of Kublai Khan who led invasions to both places but not getting far. The Mongols gained some control of the Far North, over the Inuit nomads, who were back then fearsome warriors, but the climate made it hard to maintain. Europe came under a major invasion in which Russia, the Eastern Baltic , Poland, Hungary, Ukraine and the northern Balkans, as well as the Western fringes of Germany. They were heading for Vienna but the death of Great Khan Ogedai made them turn back to the Mongol capital , Karakorum.
As a non-technological society with no written language at the time, the Mongols didn't really "invent" anything per se, but they did establish an empire that allowed technolo…gy to flourish, religion to exist, and education to prosper. They brought East and West together and laid the foundation for much of Western civilization as we now know it.
The Mongols were a tribe/clan in Mongolia, they were nomads and depended on raids for incone and wealth. The Mongol empire was built by conquering with the Mongolian advanced …bow and horsemanship. Also, the Mongols drove fear into neighboring kingdoms, so they faced less resistance. Anyone that wanted to face mongols, it was futile.

rulers of mongols were people from china. they were illiterate but very discipline. their armours were a bow and an arrow. they lives in the 1200s.
Gengis Kahn conquered an extremely large empire. He built roads connecting his empire. It was safe for an unaccompanied girl to walk from one end of his empire to the other. T…raders could load their camels with silks in China and carry them over the silk road to Venice in Italy. Books from one place can only move from one place to another when conditions are safe. Gengis Kahn also established freedom of religion. No one could persecute anyone else for religious reasons. Thus, ideas were free to spread. Censorship could not prevent the spread of knowledge.
The nomadic warrior tribe known now as the Mongols came from Mongolia, north and west of China. Before the tribes were united by Genghiz Khan in the early 13th century, there …were half a dozen or more groups and clans of Mongol tribes. Genghiz, the son of a tribal leader who was poisoned by a rival, was raised by his mother. As a young adult, he led raids into the territories of the other tribes and gradually became their leader as his group of warriors grew in size. After the tribes were united, he and his armies conquered most of Asia and the surrounding lands. Although Genghis himself didn't live to see it, the Mongol empire under his sons and grandsons grew to become the largest land empire ever seen on earth. Fully 1/3rd of the worlds population was subject to the various Mongol Khanates, from China and Manchuria to Persia, Central Asia, Russia and even farther west. The Mongol Empire was unique in that, as opposed to most other rulers, they had very little written history at the time. So for many centuries, all we knew of the Mongols was what was written by the 'victims' of their rule, in many cases European Christians. The Mongols were pictured as sub-human, evil creatures who killed indiscriminately and subjected their people to every manner of torture and evil. The truth turns out to be not quite so bloodthirsty. Yes, the Mongols killed thousands of people in their few centuries of power, but they also did something quite unique - they encouraged commerce and education and travel between the far reaches of their empire - the Khans brought craftsmen, philosophers, artists, even religious leaders back to their capital and encourage them to ply their trades. The Mongols were relatively tolerant of other religions as well, allowing Christians, Moslems, Jews and nearly every other sect to exist, if not flourish under their rule. They also applied what is known as the Pax Mongolica, under which law and justice was applied democratically and fairly, for the first time in history, from the Danube to the Pacific. The Mongols brought East and West together for the first time. They kick-started civilization and commerce. They were not nearly so bad as history paints them. The Mongol empire didn't fall so much as simply be absorbed in to the lands they ruled. As nomads and wanderers, they had not talent, nor desire, for civil administration and governance. Native peoples were left in charge of their territories, and as long as they played by the rules (e.g., tribute and taxes) they 'conquered' people lived almost as if the Mongols had never been there. Mongol descendants ruled China, India, much of Central Asia, and what is now Russia for hundreds of years.
