Temujin is the given name of one of the fiercest conquerors in history, Genghis Khan.

In this riveting portrayal of his story, you learn about Yassa law, the struggles young Temujin faced growing up, and how one decision changed his life, igniting a conquering of the greatest contiguous empire in history.
