Was Genghis Khan a happy man?
On the end of the day: are great war-lords happy people?
Depends on the warlord. Some are just power hungry brutes and become burdened with the stresses of empire. I think Genghis felt that he was meant to be a conqueror and that gave him a sense of purpose.
Marcus Aurelius himself, most powerful man in the West, respected by his subjects and all that was not very happy.
He mentions in his Meditations that he wished he was Diogenes or Socrates and that their wisdom is better than his power.
Is not only about feminists. Think on yourself as a man with mother, sisters, wife and daughters. Then think on some dirty and stinky mongoloids touching them with their greasy paws. It’s a nightmare.
>The prevalence of genetic descendants.
That doesn't prove anything. He could have been perfectly faithful to Borte (which he obviously wasn't but whatever) and all those people could be descended from his sons and grandsons.
Fuck no. He got princesses 4 free.
Genghiz Khan was following the Chinese practice of the Emperor receiving brides from almost all the important families in the realm to solidify ties to him. READ: Not "Noble families." Important families. This could be anyone.
It just so happens that Chinggy K has a hugeassfuck Empire...
You can see the same phenomena with Chinese Emperors. People with the surnames of Liu (劉, founder of Han Dynasty), Li (李, founder of the T'ang) are most likely related, and there are fucking millions of them.
Their job was pretty much to be a present to someone their daddy wanted to become allies with and they were raised from infancy to think this would be the greatest thing ever. Because Genghis conquered 10s of millions of people he probably had to turn down most of the offers and if any of the women weren't interested he must have let them be for various reasons.
1: the risk of assassination by venereal disease
2: unless you are some socio, sex with someone who doesn't want it is less fun and there were other women who did want it
3: he was a pretty nice guy, he treated his first wife very well even though he was basically cucked when she was impregnated after she was kidnapped and in his childhood he lived in poverty among the peasants and had to rise up from nothing
“A man's greatest joy is crushing his enemies.”
― Genghis Khan
I would guess so.
>Mughals were Part of the Mongolian Empire
We might as well add The Middle East and Eastern Europe who were part of the Ottoman Empire even the Japanese Empire since the nippon are altaic
I heard that Alexander became extremely depressed when he was unable to carry out a planned invasion of Arabia due to an illness he developed.
Also he was apparently heartbroken when his best friend / possible lover (forgot his name) died. It may have been one of the contributing factors to the rapid fracturing of his empire after his death.
