They were very violent and conquered many lands and killed men, women and even children, However, they also diversified their lands, had Good Morals and helped contribute with things such as making safe trade routes. The Good assets of the Mongols outweighed their cruelty in the military environment.Despite their brutal reputation, the Mongols, were not as barbaric as they were portrayed. In actuality, they were good. The Mongols created an admirable empire demonstrating
their ability to pacify overwhelming amounts of people with different ideas and beliefs. The Mongolian empire thrived, and is to this day the largest empire in history. They did have a violent edge, but that edge was necessary to become power they were. The good aspects of their society outshine the Mongol's barbarianism.
