The secret history of the Mongol queens
During the thirteenth century, the Mongolian queens, Genghis Khan's daughters and daughters-in-law, ruled the largest empire the world has ever known. Yet only a single quote from Genghis Khan pays tribute to them: "Let us reward our female offspring".
After Genghis Khan's death in 1227, conflicts erupted between the women of the family and moved into wars between brothers and sisters and between sons and mothers. At the end of these conflicts, the Mongol queens have been totally extinguished, as even their names have disappeared from the history.
This accurate and beautiful book aims to restore the queen's missing chapter to the annals of the Mongolian history.
