Gengis Kan [o Khan] (1167-1227). » MCNBiografias.com

Hijo de Yesugei, jefe de la tribu mongol de los kiutes, asentada en el suroeste del lago Baikal, y de la favorita de éste Oelon-Eke ('Madre Nube'), Gengis Kan fue capaz de aglutinar en torno suyo a las numerosas tribus nómadas mongolas que habitaban las estepas del Asia Central y crear uno de los más grandes imperios territoriales registrados a lo largo de la historia, con el que pudo lanzar un impresionante ataque contra el mundo civilizado, en especial contra el Imperio chino, secular enemigo de tártaros y mongoles. Dos años más tarde, en 1229, la gran asamblea mongola nombró a Ogodai Gran Kan mongol.

Bibliografía. 1 in 200 men direct descendants of Genghis Khan. In 2003 a groundbreaking historical genetics paper reported results which indicated that a substantial proportion of men in the world are direct line descendants of Genghis Khan.

1 in 200 men direct descendants of Genghis Khan

By direct line, I mean that they carry Y chromosomes which seem to have come down from an individual who lived approximately 1,000 years ago. As Y chromosomes are only passed from father to son, that would mean that the Y is a record of one’s patrilineage. Genghis Khan died ~750 years ago, so assuming 25 years per generation, you get about 30 men between the present and that period. In more quantitative terms, ~10% of the men who reside within the borders of the Mongol Empire as it was at the death of Genghis Khan may carry his Y chromosome, and so ~0.5% of men in the world, about 16 million individuals alive today, do so. Since 2003 there have been other cases of “super-Y” lineages. You’re probably more familiar with the paraphrase in Conan the Barbarian.

The Genetic Legacy of the Mongols: Invasion of Ghengis Khan in Central Asia. By the beginning of the 13th century, from the tribes of Hi and Tibet, was founded a feudal empire with Ghengis Khan as its ruler.

Invasion of Ghengis Khan in Central Asia

By that time Ghengis Khan, obsessed by the idea of conquering the world and having united the numerous tribes of Mongols, began his invasion of Central Asia. In his first campaign (up to 1218) Mongolian troops headed by Chingizkhan's elder son Juchi conquered the "forest peoples" living on the banks of the Yenisey River. The Uigurs submitted to Chingizkhan's authority, too. General Khibulai annexed the northern part of the Seven-River Valley. Chingizkhan himself waged a campaign against northern China and occupied Chzhunda (Peking), which was then the capital of the Tzin State. In 1218 Ghengis Khan began a campaign against the Kara-Chinese and Khorezm emperors. After the conquest of Bukhara in April 1220, Ghengis had occupied Samarkand, then Khojend (Khujand) where he made a short pause before the campaign in the direction of the Qarshi steppe and Termez.

Syr Darya River, one of the major rivers of Uzbekistan and Central Asia

One of the major rivers of Central Asia, it is formed in the Fergana Valley, by the confluence of the Naryn and Kara Darya rivers, which flow from the Tian Shan mountains. It flows through Tajikistan, then through Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan, past Kyzylorda, and into the northern basin of the Aral Sea. The shallowness of the Syr Darya makes it unfit for navigation, but its waters are used for irrigating the important cotton-growing areas along its course, and for producing hydroelectric power. The Syr Darya forms the northern and eastern limits of the Kyzyl Kum desert. History, monuments and pictures of Bukhara Uzbekistan. Weather in Bukhara. Bukhara picture.

Genghis Khan Biography

The name echoes through the history of Europe and Asia with a drumbeat of horse-hooves, accompanied by the screams of doomed townspeople. Incredibly, in a span of just 25 years, Genghis Khan's horsemen conquered a larger area and greater population than the Romans did in four centuries. To the millions of people his hordes conquered, Genghis Khan was evil incarnate. In Mongolia and across Central Asia today, though, the Great Khan's name is revered. Some Central Asians still name their sons "Chinguz," in hopes that these namesakes will grow up to conquer the world, as their thirteenth century hero did.

Estamos ante un lugar tan asombroso que podemos visitarlo de dos maneras: como simples turistas, con lo cual ya se nos caerá la baba. O como científicos: entonces descubriremos que este gigantesco lago también tiene mucho que ofrecer. En cualquier caso, si nunca habéis estado en el lago Baikal, situado al sur de la Siberia rusa, voy a intentar transportaros hasta allí lo mejor que pueda. Coged aire. El Baikal es un lago tan grande (31.494 kilómetros cuadrados de superficie: 650 kilómetros de largo y entre 29 y 80 de ancho) y tan profundo (1.637 metros, aunque si se extrajera todos los sedimentos llegaría a los 9 kilómetros) que contiene el 20 por ciento de las aguas continentales no heladas, esto es, simplificando, del agua dulce del planeta.
