Genghis Khan’s Mongolia

Nestled between Russia and China, Mongolia is a remote and vast country of wild landscapes and nomadic tribes. In many ways, life here hasn’t changed a great deal since the days of its first ruler, Genghis Khan. In this three-part series, Mongolian historian Marie Favereau and a team of experts span the country in search of its deep roots. Through interactions with modern tribes and a dive into ancient texts, they piece together Genghis’ rise from outcast to emperor and examine how his legacy remains at the core of Mongolia’s identity today.
