"A dark tide rises to the east – an army of such size and power that all the land is made quick to worry. Their leader is a man named Temujin, who has adopted the title Genghis Khan. He sweeps across the lands, conquering and subsuming all who stand in his way."
Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad's Codex, page 29.[src]
ACM Genghis Khan 1

Genghis Khan with a Sword of Eden

Temujin (c. 1162 – August 1227), also known under the title Genghis Khan, was the founder and first emperor of the Mongol Empire, which he ruled from 1206 until his death. Utilizing a Sword of Eden, Genghis Khan established what would later become the largest contiguous empire in history.[1]

By the year 1217, the Mentor of the Levantine Assassins, Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad, correctly suspected that Genghis Khan's rise to power was due in part to a Sword of Eden. Thus, Altaïr, his wife Maria, and his son Darim traveled to Mongolia intending to assassinate Khan and retrieve the Piece of Eden. In 1227, the Mongolian Assassin Qulan Gal shot Genghis Khan's horse with an arrow, dismounting the Mongol Emperor and providing Darim the chance to kill him with a crossbow bolt.[2] He was said to have been buried with a segment of the Trident of Eden.[3]

Genghis Khan's grandson, Hülegü Khan, later destroyed most of the Assassin strongholds in the Levant after a failed attempt on his life in 1256, effectively erasing the Levantine Assassins' power.[4]


  • Rebecca Crane estimates that Genghis Khan likely has sixteen million living descendants.[5]
