. Temujin is enthroned as
Genghis Khan.

. At a kuriltai  (great assembly) Temujin is lauded as Genghis Khan, the “strong ruler” or perhaps the “oceanic ruler.” (Scholars wrangle over the exact translation.)

He sets to work fusing them into a single people—building an army, imposing uniform laws, establishing a written language.
