Genghis khan owns a very vast army bigger and larger that will ever be mobilized ever :P At its height the mongol horde was 3.2mil in numbers though it has been tainted with non mongols but then again it was renamed the Golden Horde.
He had that many troops in his army? If that is true, then most of them were keeping order in the empire 3.2 million is a LOT if you compare it to the total population of France in the 14th century which was about 12 million if I remember correctly.

Closer to 20 million, but the point still stands. Particularly since France was by far the most populous nation in Europe. The army figures just don't match up.

Well, China is a lot more populous than France. So even in Ghengis Khan's time, that doesn't seem outrageous given the geographical differences...

In any case, Ghengis Khan is the most successful man in history - with 0.5% of the entire population today directly descended from him. But I would suggest that that does not make him the best general. But as far as his genes are concerned, he's awesome.

You only have power over people as long as you don't take everything from them.
But when you've robbed a man of everything, he's no longer in your power - he is free again.
