(ORDO NEWS) — Everyone knows Genghis Khan as one of the most famous conquerors in history. It was he who founded the Mongol Empire in 1206, which by the time of his death was already 2.5 times larger than the Roman one. Quite a lot is known about the life of Genghis Khan, but there are a lot of rumors around his death.
Researchers believe that a variety of legends were told about his death in order to either tarnish the memory of the deceased, or to honor him. You can hear a variety of versions, but today scientists are sure that all this was invented long before the death of Genghis Khan.
Francesco Galassi stated that there is no evidence to believe in all these legends. Specialists began to study The History of the Yuan, which was written during the reign of the Ming Dynasty. It says that on August 18-25, 1227, when Genghis Khan made his next military campaign, he felt bad. The reason for the poor health was a fever, which, as a result, killed him eight days after the onset of the disease.
