Mongol leader Genghis Khan rose from humble beginnings to establish the largest land empire in history. After uniting the nomadic tribes of the Mongolian plateau, he conquered huge chunks of central Asia and China. His descendants expanded the empire even further, advancing to such far-off places as Poland, Vietnam, Syria and Korea.

At their peak, the Mongols controlled between 11 and 12 million contiguous square miles, an area about the size of Africa. Many people were slaughtered in the course of Genghis Khan’s invasions, but he also granted religious freedom to his subjects, abolished torture, encouraged trade and created the first international postal system.

The grandson of Genghis Khan, the founder of the Mongol Empire, Kublai Khan was the 5th Great Khan of the Mongol Empire, and the founder of the Yuan Dynasty in China. He assumed the title emperor of China, and his conquest of South China’s Song Dynasty was the last step in the Mongols’ efforts to rule China.

With that conquest behind him, he became the overlord of all the Mongol dominions (the Golden Horde in southern Russia, the Il-Khanate of Persia and regions inhabited by traditionally nomadic Mongol princes), as well as the ruler of his own territory of China. Before the time of Genghis Khan, the founder of the Mongol Empire, the Mongols had been a group of semi-barbaric nomadic tribes, essentially moving through history unnoticed.

Marco Polo was a Venetian merchant believed to have journeyed across Asia at the height of the Mongol Empire. He traveled overland along what later became known as the Silk Road. Upon reaching China, Polo entered the court of powerful Mongol ruler Kublai Khan, who dispatched him on trips to help administer the realm. Polo remained abroad for 24 years. He became famous for his travels thanks to a popular book he co-authored while in a Genoese prison.

Everything we know about him comes from his own text and a few Venetian documents; Asian sources never mentioned him. This lack of hard evidence has caused a small number of skeptics to question whether Marco Polo actually made it to China. Most scholars are convinced by the detailed nature of Marco Polo’s account, which, they say, overwhelmingly checks out against available archaeological, historical and geographical records.
