The Secret History of the Mongol Queens : How the Daughters of Genghis Khan Rescued His Empire
by Jack Weatherford




Overview -
"Enticing . . . hard to put down."--Associated Press - "A fascinating romp through the feminine side of the infamous Khan clan."--Booklist

The Mongol queens of the thirteenth century ruled the largest empire the world has ever known. The daughters of the Silk Route turned their father's conquests into the first truly international empire, fostering trade, education, and religion throughout their territories and creating an economic system that stretched from the Pacific to the Mediterranean.

Yet sometime near the end of the century, censors cut a section about the queens from the Secret History of the Mongols, and, with that one act, the dynasty of these royals had seemingly been extinguished forever, as even their names were erased from the historical record.

With The Secret History of the Mongol Queens, a groundbreaking and magnificently researched narrative, Jack Weatherford restores the queens' missing chapter to the annals of history.
