. Genghis Khan dies.
.
. Eternity claims Genghis Khan in August 1227. He has lived about 60 years. The cause of death is a mystery, perhaps because of Genghis’s order to shroud his passing with secrecy. So seriously do the heirs take this command that they kill almost anyone who sees the funeral procession. The great conqueror’s grave is not marked—to discourage grave robbers—and no one has found it yet.
