Chinggis Khan (his childhood name was Temoojin) was born on April 16, 1162 (adjusted to our current calendars, the date is November) on the bank of Onon River, in the Burkhan Khaldun Mountain in the heart of Mongolia. He came to power by uniting many of the nomadic tribes of Northeast Asia. In 1207, he established the Mongol Empire and was proclaimed "Chinggis Khan" (King Chinggis). Chinggis Khan and his descendants went on to stretch the Mongol Empire across most of Euroasia by conquering or creating vassal states out of modern-day China, Korea, the Caucasus, Central Asian countries, and substantial portions of Eastern Europe, Russia and the Middle East. He died at his age of 65.
Following stations will be active during the Event: JU850KAA, JU850AA/3, JU850DA, JU850DN and JU850CS.
