Genghis Khan. Hunting With Golden Eagles

  • Published 1 year ago

Genghis Khan was the Great Khan and founder of the Mongol Empire. It became the largest contiguous empire in history after his death. Genghis Khan came to power by uniting many of the nomadic tribes of Northeast Asia.

He was born as Temujin, but after the victories over rival Mongol tribes, tribal leaders agreed to give him the title Genghis Khan. The translation of the title means “universal ruler”.

With that in mind, one of the many interesting facts linked with the name of Genghis Khan is that he used his eagles for combat, hunting, and much more.

Nowadays, there are still tribes in Mongolia that follow the tradition of eagle hunting. This documentary follows three different ethnic groups, all of which have different cultures and traditions. But they are all heirs of Genghis Khan, and they occupy the same territory. The similarity between all of them is the long tradition of using eagles for hunting.
