Hey I might be part Mongolian I am 1/4 Russian LOL!
In Uzbekistan I listened (watched, mostly) as beautiful Uzbek girls spoke proudly of "Temujin" as one of the more famous conquerors to use their corner of Central Asia as an east-west invasion route. Their other favorite was Tamerlane, buried in nearby Samarqand. They are also big fans of Alexander the Great. "Are those your only heroes?", I asked. "We Uzbeks admire only poets and conquerors" was the reply.
Is Temujin the real name of Genghis Khan?
