Even a blood thirsty conqueror may have been a starry-eyed teen...

The best sword.
Genghis Khan gives the best sword to a middle-man and decides to share his part of the booty with the grass root soldiers.

New master
The middle-man has decided to follow Genghis Khan after he shared his booty. But his former master isn't quite happy with this...

Five ropes for this slave.
Genghis Khan is sold for 5 ropes in a slave market.

How scary the Mongols were!

Watching this preview of Mongol I can understand why European peasants were afraid of an invasion by those Asian Barbarians... No wonder Genghis Khan hasn't been forgotten till today!
