He was a man who combined the savagery of a real-life Conan the Barbarian with the sheer tactical genius of Napoleon, a man from the outermost reaches of Asia whose armies ultimately stood poised to conquer Europe itself. His name was Genghis Khan. Today the name of Genghis Khan is synonymous with dark evil yet in his lifetime he was a heroic figure, a supreme strategist capable of eliciting total devotion from his warriors. Born in Mongolia sometime after 1160, Genghis Khan grew up in a brutal world. His father was killed when he was only nine and at the age of 13 he killed his half-brother in a dispute over ultimately who would lead the family. Genghis Khan was to grow into one of the greatest warrior leaders of all time and created a dynasty in his wake. Was Genghis Khan the brutal monster who ruthlessly slaughtered millions in his quest for power, or was he a brilliant visionary who transformed a rabble of warring tribes into a nation capable of world domination? Filmed entirely on location in Mongolia, this epic film tells the story behind the legend that is Genghis Khan. How against all the odds an outcast came to conquer and create an empire larger than the world had ever seen before.
