to see his cities reduced to ashes, to see those who love him shrouded in tears,
and to gather into your bosom his wives and daughters."

fact a culture broker and a friend to the people. Though he massacred millions, he has proved to have done more good than bad - for his citizens and for the benefit of his Empire.
In building physical and theoretical bridges, Genghis the Great Khan united and created a nation which is known today as one of the greatest civilizations of have ever thrived.
