Mongolia

Mongolia has a vast landmass, but only about three million inhabitants. Mongolia has a long and fascinating history. The most famous Mongol of all time was undoubtedly Genghis Khan, the fierce warrior-ruler who created the Mongol Empire. Since that time, many people have claimed descent from him, and modern DNA testing suggests that most of them are right! Approximately 8% of all the men in an area of Asia from northeast China to Uzbekistan have genetic markers showing that they are descended from Genghis Khan. That’s equivalent to about 0.5 percent of all the men in the world!
