Genghis Khan, Chingis/Chinghis Khan; c. 1162 – 18 August 1227), 
born Temüjin, was the founder and Great Khan (emperor) of the Mongol Empire, 
which became the largest contiguous empire in history after his demise.

He came to power by uniting many of the nomadic tribes of northeast Asia. 
After founding the Mongol Empire and being proclaimed "Genghis Khan," he started the 
Mongol invasions that resulted in the conquest of most of Eurasia. 
These included raids or invasions of the Kara-Khitan Khanate, Caucasus, 
Khwarezmid Empire, Western Xia and Jin dynasties. 
These campaigns were often accompanied by wholesale 
massacres of the civilian populations – especially 
in the Khwarezmian and Xia controlled lands. 
By the end of his life, the Mongol Empire occupied a substantial portion of Central Asia and China.

Before Genghis Khan died, he assigned Ögedei Khan as his successor 
and split his empire into khanates among his sons and grandsons.
He died in 1227 after defeating the Western Xia. 
He was buried in an unmarked grave somewhere in Mongolia at an unknown location
His descendants extended the Mongol Empire across most of Eurasia by conquering 
or creating vassal states out of all of modern-day China, Korea, the Caucasus, 
Central Asia, and substantial portions of modern Eastern Europe, Russia, and the Middle East. 
Many of these invasions repeated the earlier large-scale slaughters of local populations. 
As a result Genghis Khan and his empire have a fearsome reputation in local histories.

Beyond his military accomplishments, Genghis Khan also advanced the Mongol Empire in other ways. 
He decreed the adoption of the Uyghur script as the Mongol Empire's writing system. 
He also practiced meritocracy and encouraged religious tolerance in the 
Mongol Empire while unifying the nomadic tribes of northeast Asia. 
Present-day Mongolians regard him as the founding father of Mongolia.

Vilified throughout most of history for the brutality of his campaigns, 
Genghis Khan is also credited with bringing the Silk Road under one cohesive political environment. 
This increased communication and trade from Northeast Asia to Muslim Southwest Asia and Christian Europe, 
thus expanding the horizons of all three cultural areas.
