Genghis Khan meets his demise on this episode of This Day In History.
On this episode of This Day In History, Tony and Armand discuss the founder of the Mongolian Empire and brutal genocidal ruler, Genghis Khan.
In 1227, Genghis Khan passed away at age 65 due to what many believe were sustained injuries from falling off of his horse. Khan is credited with launching the Mongols invasion that claimed most of Eurasia and bringing the Silk Road under one cohesive political environment, but was also a ruthless dictator known for murdering his own half-brother and the deaths of thousands of others.
Plus, we celebrate the birthdays of Roman Polanski, Patrick Swayze, and Roberto Clemente on this episode of This Day In History!
