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 know that Genghis Khan gave power to his daughters? While he and his sons were

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 kindly 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 khans 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

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 the 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 Genghis Khan I also didn t know 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 for 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 using a Kindle And it was uite difficult to navigate between the map family tree and whatever passage I was reading This type of book is definitely appropriate to read in book form not electronically
