Genghis I.

This is coolbert:

From a comment to the blog:

"Biologists would like to find the grave of Genghiz, to get samples of any DNA, as he or his brothers, have been determined to be the founders of a lineage with over one million living descendants."

16 million descendants it is believed!! This has to be verified. Such is what can be done with DNA analysis.

Here is the full dope:

“The greatest happiness is to scatter your enemy, to drive him before you, to see his cities reduced to ashes, to see those who love him shrouded in tears, and to gather into your bosom his wives and daughters.” - - G. Khan.

“The greatest happiness is to vanquish your enemies, to chase them before you, to rob them of their wealth, to see those dear to them bathed in tears, to clasp to your bosom their wives and daughters.” - - G. Khan.

Genghis - - practiced - - what he preached!!??
