This is a 15 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Civilizations of East Asia - Key Figures - Kublai Khan. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
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.
Their cultural traditions were primitive, and they had little experience with economic activity save for some organized hunting expeditions and herding. Until a few years before Kublai Khan’s birth, the Mongols had been illiterate and gave little thought to ideas of nation building.
The presentation covers the following:
