The Earth is the Lord’s by Taylor Caldwell


This is the story of Temujin, son of Houlon and Yesukai. Even if he loved his wife Bortei, his true love was Azara, daughter of Toghrul Kahn.

As usual, the author is able to portray with plenty of historical details the life of this great conqueror who founded the Mongol Empire.

According to Wikipedia, “he was buried in an unmarked grave somewhere in Mongolia at an unknown location.”

Genghis Khan was the second greatest conqueror of all time, behind only Alexander the Great.

Plenty of movies have been made about this famous historical figure but the most known version Gengis Khan (1965) is the one with Omar Sharif as Temujin and Stephen Boyd as Jamuga, the sworn brother of Temujin.
