  1. On this date Aug. 18, 1227 our most beloved Mongolian leader Genghis Khan passes away. The Mongols proved to be the best warriors of the era defeating the Chinese Empire, ending the Islamic Empire, reopening of the Silk Roads long abandoned after the fall of Rome, and extending all the way into Poland.
