Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: - - - «Genghis Khan, ruthless leader of the Mongols and sovereign over the biggest empire ever ruled by a single man, was one of the most powerful and feared rulers in history. Born the son of a Mongol warrior, Genghis Khan was a notorious yet enigmatic figure. Through a mixture of ruthlessness and genius, he rose to become an accomplished warrior, army general, supreme ruler and finally, shrewd statesman. Instilling respect among his subjects, and fear among Asian and European kings, he would eventually rule a territory larger than the Roman Empire. This lavish docu-drama retraces the real life and personality of Temudjin, the warrior they called Genghis Khan. Using the Secret History of the Mongols [Storia segreta dei Mongoli], the only written account on Genghis Khan, this program recreates the key moments in the life of the infamous Mongol leader: fierce battles and violent sieges, political triumphs and personal crossroads, all set against the dramatic landscapes of Mongolia».
