Mongolia

Mongolia

Most famous for the conquest of much of the Eurasian landmass in the 13th century under the leadership of Chinggis Khan, the Mongols proved an important military and administrative influence on many European and Asian civilizations. States centered in Mongolia dominated Inner Asia for more than two thousand years but Chinggis Khan's Mongol Empire was the height of Mongolian and Eurasian steppe power and was the largest contiguous empire in history. Although notorious for their conquests, the Mongols famously promoted cultural, material, and intellectual exchange across Eurasia.
