Thanks to our generous sponsors from the Great Courses Plus and our patrons at Patreon, we are finally releasing the first episode in our 6 part series on the Rise of the Mongol Empire. This episode will describe the history of the Mongols, the birth and childhood of the first leader who united them - Temujin, who would be later called Genghis Khan. Temujin's struggle for the supremacy with his blood brother Jamukha, his reform of the Mongol army and the society are featured and the video is concluded with the battle of Yehuling of 1211 and the conquest of the Northern China by the Mongols.
