    The roles of Toregene and Sorkhokhtani and other women are important because they provide an inside view of how women battle for power, and how this continuation of violence among the Mongol elite would eventually contribute to the fall of the Mongol Empire.

In her greed for power, she replaced her husband official with her own and empower another foreign women (Fatima). The desire for control over the Mongol Empire made women fought against men and other women as well.

    brothers were placed on an equal level to the right of succession according to the Mongol succession process. Therefore, the only method that was feasible enough to eliminate the other candidate was that of tanistry. Normally, tanistry was a strong-armed tactic that was used by the Mongol people in order to eliminate other candidates from gaining control (Morgan, 2007, page 35). These methods of tanistry were normally so effective that the art of succession never changed or was replaced by…

    after the death of Mongke and the succession of a new Khan. Each faction wished to have a Khan that represented his or her ideals, and thus tanistry elicited a civil war within the Mongol Empire. Therefore, the battle between Ariq Boke and his brother Khubulai demonstrates the ineffectiveness of tanistry as a succession process for the Mongol Empire, and the irresolvable conflicting interests between steppe and sown life. In order to understand how Ariq Boke was a viable candidate for Mongol…

    frightening presences whose features were inflated and inaccurate. “Most accounts describe him as tall and strong with a flowing mane of hair and a long, bushy beard”. (Andrews 4-5). In the year 1176, around the age of 10, Khan “killed one of his half-brothers in a fight over hunting spoils” (Andrews 7). In that same year Khan got engaged to Borte, his soon to be wife.

    history. In comparison to women of other cultures such as China and Persia, these women had more freedom. Christian, Muslim and Confucian commentators were uncomfortable with the idea of a woman in government (CITE?) Certainly, women endured hardship, but they faced this issue equally with men. The equality that woman shared with men, even in Mongol patriarchic society, shaped their ability to be involved in matters of the state. Though a woman could not become a great Khan, they effectively…

    depictions of the Mongols by European cultures. This made me susceptible to misinformation, but also made for a more interesting read since I had no foreknowledge of Genghis Khan’s life story, and each sentence was new, presumably accurate, information to me. The book was an interesting read. It starts off like an action novel with the dramatic birth of Temüjin, who would later kill his half-brother Begter, escape from imprisonment by the Tayichiud, flee to Ong Khan and the Kereyid tribe, run…
