Age of Genghisids

Age of Genghisids

During the time of Jochi Ulys, new types of people appeared in the Great Steppe. Jochi's father, Genghis Khan, united all of the nomadic peoples, and began rebuilding the infrastructure of the former Turkic Khaganate. At that time, the talented, capable, and productive people from any social background came to the first ranks, instead of the old clan-tribal aristocracy. For them, for the first time in centuries, the "social elevators" opened their doors. And at the head of them stood the brave and intelligent leaders - Töre, that is, the descendants of Genghis Khan.
