The History Of Mongolia

Mongolia has once been ruled by various nomadic empires such as the Xiongnu state, Xianbei state, and many others. In 1206 Genghis Khan was able to unite or conquer the warring tribes, forging them into a fighting force to create the largest contiguous empire in the world history, the mongol empire. In the 16th and 17th centuries, Mongolia cam under the influence of Tibetan Buddhism. At the end of the 17th century, what is now Mongolia had been incorporated into the area ruled by the Manchu-led Qing dynasty. During the collapse of the Qing in 1911, Mongolia declared independence but had to struggle until 1921 to firmly establish independence.
