Genghis Khan - Life on the Steppes

The law of the steppes allowed people to take what they wished - but that insured fighting between tribes.  The history of Genghis Khan records that he believed one cannot fight a battle one cannot win.  On the other hand, a determined person can accomplish great things.

Take a trip back in time to see what life was like on the steppes before Temujen became Genghis Khan.  When he was barely twenty, the young man was already victorious over one of the steppe's greatest tribes.

Learn about life on the steppes, during the time of Genghis Khan, in this clip from the BBC's Genghis Khan.  It is based on a written history composed soon after the great ruler's death.
