The Rise and Fall of The Yuan Dynasty (Chinese History)


The rise and fall of the Mongol empire has always been a fascinating one to me. This short documentary (in link below) by TedEd shows how the Mongols rose to power under the brilliant leadership of Genghis Khan, but crumbled when his grandsons went to war with each other over inheritance. This in turn, fragmented the realm into 4 separate empires. Enjoy!
