Mongolian Invasion
4 Inquiry Questions
These are my four inquiry questions and answers about the Mongolian war:
1. What effects did the invasion have on Japan? The Mongol invasion had quite large effects on Japan in 1274: 22,500 killed before landing or drowning and in 1281: 130,500 killed before landing or drowning.
2. Why did the Mongol invasions of Japan fail? Because the typhoon winds destroyed the Mongol fleet. They lost 75% of their troops.
3. Who was the leader of battle from Mongolia? Kublai Khan, the grandson of Genghis Khan, became emperor of Mongolia in 1259.
4. What did Mongolia want? The Mongolian empire wanted the Japanese sovereign to pay him tribute.. straight away, five times over the next six years, Kublai Khan sent his messengers, the Japanese shogun (leader of military) would not allow them even to land on Honshu. Japan was the only country of the east that wasn't under his power. Some people may think that he wanted their pearls and gold, but he probably wanted the perfect the economic and military isolation of South China by bringing Japan under his control.
Fun Fact
During the seven year gap between the battles the Mongols ordered the Koreans to build them brand new ships and get ready a large army for the invasion. A Mongol ship from that period found by archeologist was 230 feet in length, twice as big as any European ship used at that time!

My secondary source is a painting from our era giving information on the Mongolian invasion on the artists point of view. People make secondary sources to give people a better indication of what was happening in the Mongolian invasion. I think that society was finding out more about the Mongolian invasion and the artist wanted to portray that in this painting. The artist most likely made this for people who were interested in the Mongol invasion. The artist would have had many different resources to create this piece. This item would be important because without it we would not be able to ever understand the artists point of view of the Mongolian invasion. If someone painted this today it would be different because the artist would have different information. If you closely examine the painting you can see that they are all fighting on a stormy day. And arrived on boats.
