R personal benefit or even survival The aristocracy of birth had been his eternal enemy and he sought to defeat it through his assembly of heroes the aristocracy of brave spirits the baatuud Service always outranked wealth loyalty always outranked paymentsNo friend is better than your own wise heart Genghis Khan My only complaint is that I read this us This is or has both speculative history and history told as story as per his first on the Mongols Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World Perhaps I found uibbles with this one For instance his dissolute Ogodei doesn t suare with the indly drunk portrayed in Juvaini Genghis Khan The History Of The World Conueror on which grounds and similar I thought the goodevil contrast between Genghis daughters and his sons too strongly put Nor did I believe the war on women concept It s true that Mongols foreign wives from tribes and peoples who had once been conuests were soon left with the government to themselves Did they believe in Mongol values Genghis values It seems they contributed to what uickly became a brawl for family power Genghis innovations forgotten This gist of the story I go along with but again and again I felt too strongly put or I scrawled a uestion mark next to the text I thought the book too much about ueens true ueens is the title But had we seen them against a background of ordinary Mongol women had women s status been examined then they wouldn t have stood out as so exceptional and I think the war on women idea might fall apart Why The 13th century was an age of ueens not just at Kara Korum but in Mongol occupied or Mongol allied territories because steppe values spilt over so than they ever had Before the 13th century Liao and Western Liao had a history of ueens in charge upon which the Mongols drew and even women in politics in settled states Tangut and traditional Song China seemed to say If she can in Liao I can Given this I don t understand where an anti woman attitude came from I need that explained It isn t like it was there before before the innovations of Genghis to rear its ugly head again when he was gone If there was a mother son tug of power I ve read about a pattern in Tangut and in Liao where widows left in charge do not want to hand on to sons once they come of age and the battle s on that mothers often won these were part steppe societies in the couple of centuries before the MongolsStill this is a massively valuable book just like his other since Mongol ueens weren t talked about in the streets before Jack Weatherford For a book that looks at women in steppe societies and has on the lives of ordinary women as much evidence as can be scraped together and women of power in the lead up to the Mongols see Women of the Conuest Dynasties Gender and Identity in Liao and Jin China A book on Western Liao The Empire of the ara Khitai in Eurasian History Between China and the Islamic World tells of further innovations indeed the first women hans If Genghis tried to institute power for his daughters these were the examples he had to followI d better footnote what I say on the spillover of steppe attitudes to women into settled territories Early Mongol Rule in Thirteenth Century Iran A Persian Renaissance displays this in the west Well not exactly this version but a Mongolian translation I read Just too lazy to add a new book It was really interesting to read it How some historical facts were buried At some point it felt like a story being made up But as the author is fairly accurate about historical facts it s convincing As I m a Mongolian and a woman facts it s convincing As I m a Mongolian and a woman ve always felt like women in Mongolian society and families have value than anything Even they marry someone and leave their home even they are said Women and Gazelle have no territory they always stay as Mongolian Well guys read it yourselves It s interesting Also Mongolian translation is very good I have probably recommended this book to people than any other book I have read in the past year In part this is because it is extremely readable and easily accessible even to people who have no nowledge of Central Asia or its history but mostly it is because its subject matter is so fascinating Before reading this book I had no idea of the role that the daughters daughters in law and granddaughters of Genghis Khan played in ruling destroying and preserving his empire It s not a book that reveres the contributions of women while glossing over the difficulties they suffered as attempts to give the female perspective of historical events often do It presents the female descendants of Genghis Khan as fully realized players on the international stage of their time and portrays the great han and his empire as something complex and interesting than the barbarian horde to which it is so often reduced in Western histories I can honestly say that I learned something new on every page of this book and than once I looked up from a chapter to find that I had completely blown through my lunch hour which is not something that happens often with me and non fiction In my opinion the author deserves even credit for this book than Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World simply because historians tend to play down women s contribution to shaping the world in official records His Mere Efforts To

phase of wall 
of wall in history Charging into battle even while pregnant she fought to reassemble the Mongol Nation of Genghis Khan and to preserve it for her own children to rule in peace At the conclusion of his magnificently researched and ground breaking narrative Weatherford notes that despite their mystery and the efforts to erase them from our collective memory the deeds of these Mongol ueens inspired great artists from Chaucer and Milton to Goethe and Puccini and so their stories live on today With The Secret History of the Mongol ueens Jack Weatherford restores the ueens' missing chapter to the annals of histo. ,

Highly competent daughters that he installed as rulers of the various places he conuered His sons were a miserable lot and you really have to wonder what Genghis was thinking leaving the empire to them It turns out that what he was thinking was Yeah they re stupid and incompetent but at least their sisters will eep the empire togetherSo that brilliant first book Turns out to be only half the story and NOT A WORD of the rest of that story is mentioned This ind of we ll honor the accomplishments of women and minorities by leaving them out of the main text and giving them their own text separate but eual treatment is pretty infuriating especially when it comes out that the Mongol ueens were so essential to the story The story would not be there without them Time and time again it was the ueens who saved the empire and led armies into the field breaking taboos and pissing off the men around them as they held the invading Chinese and Turks at bayFor shame Jack Weatherford Historians throughout history tried to erase the story of the Mongol ueens going so far as to cut out all mention of them from the official records and you did it too This was one of those books where I wished the author would allow a good story to speak for itself There was way too much melodramatic languageThe Mongol nation and the once glorious Golden Family sank so low and suffered so much abuse that it would possibly have been a blessing for the whole family to have died and the name of the nation to have disappeared into the wind like the cold ashes of an abandoned campIt was a constant irritant through an otherwise interesting book Mongolian ger yurt transported on a cartInside a Mongolian gerThe Mongolian practice of tsatsal which consists of tossing fermented mare s milk into the air as an offering to the spirits usually after the departure of loved ones to war or to join another family upon marriageFascinating When I was in university I studied Chinese studies and the last semester of my undergraduate studies was spent in Beijing While studying there I got to meet a Mongol girl called iige Ethnically she is a Mongol both her parents are Mongols However she isn t from Mongolia she was born in Xinjiang China as were her parents Her grandparents settled there at a time when national borders weren t clearly defined yet She writes and speaks the Mongol language fluently however the Mongol she speaks differs slightly from the Mongol language in present day Mongolia Nevertheless my point here is that Mongolian people are fascinating A nomadic people that have influenced the world beyond the national borders of today s Mongolia My friend iige is a great dancer and I couldn t help but agree with the author Jack Weatherford that the Mongolian people have preserved their history through song despite the historical censorship of documents Memories stored in songs dance tales and every other type of art form and lifestyle is ultimately powerful than written history in my view because history is and was always written by the victor And to me who studied Chinese history it s interesting to see the barbarian s Perspective As Opposed To as opposed to Chinese imperial courtBefore reading this book I was only vaguely aware of who the Mongols were Now I m just fascinated In this book Weatherford was able to tie in together the history of Genghis Khan and his descendants the story of ueen Mandukhai the Wise and Mongolian culture I learned about how Mongols used to sniff their cheeks as a way to say goodbye and that two sniffs means goodbye whereas one sniff means see you later til I can sniff the other cheek again The Mongol ideal of beauty is found in the face pale with extremely red cheeks The social structure of the Mongols was uite peculiar If a man died it wasn t uncommon for the son to marry the widowhis mother or stepmom Yet it was forbidden for a father to even look at his son s wife All children regardless if they had different fathers or mothers would be considered and treated eual to anyone who declared them part of hisher family If a girl and boy were married at a young age sexual relations needn t follow immediate and was left up to the couple s own choiceAccording to Genghis Khan women shouldn t be treated as property or animals unfortunately his sons and latter generations didn t respect this beliefI really enjoyed Genghis Khan s spiritual awakening when he contemplated the importance of balancing male and female Father Sky and Mother Earth Mountains and RiversThe last story of Mandukhai was especially inspiring All she ever sought was unity among the different Mongol tribes and peace but peace is a difficult goal to attain if even possible And yet the Mongol empire was able to rule over a variety of different people in terms of ethnicity religion and language while still having to a certain degree rely on a STATE CULT IN THE FORM OF cult in the form of Khan I also didn t now that the Mughal Empire in South Asia are descendants of Mongols That the word dalai from Dalai Lama is actually a Mongol word meaning ocean Tibetan gyatso In the Mongol perspective challenges choose us but we choose how to respond Destiny brings the opportunities and the misfortunes and the merit of our lives derives from those unplanned moments Genghis Khan always sought out the service of baatar the hero who acts immediately and decisively without concern fo. " Conflicts Erupted Between His Daughters And His Daughters In "Conflicts erupted between his daughters and his daughters in what began as a war between powerful women soon became a war against women in power as brother turned against sister son against mother At the end of this epic struggle the dynasty of the Mongol ueens had seemingly been extinguished forever as even their names were erased from the historical record One of the most unusual and important warrior ueens of history arose to avenge the wrongs rescue the tattered shreds of the Mongol Empire and restore order to a shattered world Putting on her uiver and picking up her bow ueen Mandhuhai led her soldiers through victory after victory In her thirties she married a seventeen year old prince and she bore eight children in the midst of a career spent fighting the Ming Dynasty of. ,

So here s the thing basically everything I Thorns On Roses knew about Genghis Khan and the Mongol Empire comes from playing Civilisation II as aid Which is to say that I Matched To A Prince Happily Ever After Inc 2 knew Karakorum was the capital and Genghis Khan developed one hell of an empire except in Civ II because I was a BIG fan of the cheat menu and would just obliterate anyone who came near me but almost nothing but that I ve also been trying to read non fiction this year that tells women s stories So this seemed like a prime opportunity to read about women in history while also expanding on my vast Civ acuirednowledge And I DID achieve both of those things But as you might expect there s very limited historical evidence for a lot of these women so there seemed to be a fair bit of speculation involved in a lot of the stories that are conveyed Except where the Mongol Army came in and raped everyone THAT was discussed in far too much detail presumably because there s plenty of historical evidence for that NO THANK YOU PLEASE So I enjoyed reading about these badass women particularly the daughters of Genghis Khan But as the book moved on through history and there was less evidence for his female descendants and evidence for the rape of entire female populations I hopped on the nope train I still finished it And I still learnt stuff I just The Occult Reliquary kind of wish I could UNLEARN some of it This is how you write historical non fiction This is definitely how you write about badass women in historyI honestly feelind of bad as a feminist for not Das Suffix I In Der Berner Resp Schweier Mundart knowing about Mongol women earlier Not that the early Mongols were feminists per se but the treatment and history of women is so vastly different from almost any historical culture that I ve read about it should be a huge point in women s history We allnow about Genghis Khan or at least we all should But what of his wives his daughters his female descendantsThe book reads like a novel and part of that is because Mongolian history is so fascinating I m not just saying that There is a literal Moses in the basket type story going on at one point except oh wait it happened thousands of years later and is on historical record Some of it reads like a fairy tale though Weatherford is always up front about where the history is lacking and where he has to make assumptionsThe thing about this society is that it wasn t eual but women were still remarkable political players And sexual politics were vastly different from those of their European counterparts One happy marriage was between a woman who had basically raised her husband since he was seven with the union being consummated when he was seventeen and she thirty three They went on to have eight children including three sets of twins Genghis Khan fully expected his daughters to be his representatives in the courts he sent them off to and they thus exhibited notable power Of course men still ultimately became Ella Fitzgerald Forever Ella khans and Genghis happened to be a somewhat shitty dad So inevitably upon his death hisingdom fell apart And that s where the story gets really interesting It stretches across centuries with one fascinating woman after the next Like dude There are at least five historical fiction novels that could be made out of these read it You ll be happy you did Okay I m obsessed with the Mongol Otherwise why would I write a happy you did Okay I m obsessed with the Mongol Empire Otherwise why would I write a about a princess who lived in that era But this book really captured my imaginationMost of us think of barbarians and plunder when we hear the words Mongol or Genghis Khan But did you Longbow know that Genghis Khan gave power to his daughters While he and his sons were off with the army conuering lands far advanced than Mongolia he left the already conuered lands under the control of his wives and daughters Yes he married off his daughters to alliedings and princes but once he did he stripped the husbands of their titles and gave the real authority to his daughters He gave them the title of Princess Who Runs the State One of these daughters says Jack Weatherford a Macalaster College anthropology professor governed so well that she even invented the cultural and organization model that grew into the Mongol EmpireWow After all the research I did for my novel Daughter of Xanadu I new that Mongolian women were strong learned archery from a young age and sometimes rode off to battle with their husbands The Secret History of the Mongols tells of many female ancestors who showed great fortitude But governing I never new thatThis book of history not fiction tells some fascinating tales Okay it s not that this was a bad book In fact it was a four star book well a three and a half but let s call it four ExceptExcept that Jack Weatherford wrote a brilliant book called Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World which precedes this book It was the story of how Genghis Kahn and his four sons shaped the modern world in the 1200s It is everything you want in a history book well researched aware of and respectful of and inclusive of a drastically different culture from that of the author very readable I recommend that book to everyoneBut having read this one I now recommend the first book with a caveat This book is about how Genghis Khan and his eight daughters shaped the modern world in the 1200s Of which we do not hear a word in the first bookTo be honest the history really doesn t make sense until you realize that Genghis Khan had. The Mongol ueens of the thirteenth century ruled the largest empire the world has ever nown Yet sometime near the end of the century censors cut a section from The Secret History of the Mongols leaving a single tantalizing uote from Genghis Khan Let us reward our female offspring Only this hint of a father's legacy for his daughters remained of a much larger story The ueens of the Silk Route turned their father's conuests into the world's first truly international empire fostering trade education and religion throughout their territories and creating an economic system that stretched from the Pacific to the Mediterranean Outlandish stories of these powerful ueens trickled out of the Empire shocking the citizens of Europe and and the Islamic world After Genghis Khan's death in 1227.
