The Mongols might be compared to a huge storm that caused huge damage, but they also cleared the way for some important new developments. Provide a brief summary of the impact of the Mongol conquests. What, in your opinion, were the two most negative and most positive things that came out of the Mongol conquests of the 13th and 14th centuries, and why? Overall, would you call their impact on world history more negative or productive, and why?Can you give me some thoughts on this please?The Mongols not only conquered territory in Europe but also in Asia, and particularly in China. While Genghis Khan was alive, the Mongols conquered Central Asia, Eastern Europe and the Middle East. The Mongols were also famous for moving very quickly. They could travel for many miles without stopping (poor horses). One positive was that they brought an end to the Persian Empire which had existed for hundreds of years. One may see the building of Beijing under Kublai Khan as positive. Did you know that Kublai Khan saw himself not as an invading barbarian but as a Chinese emperor under a new dynasty? Also, after takeover of China, Kublai Khan does not want to be an outsider. He even adopts the administrative system of the Chinese bureaucracy. The only difference is that he employs more foreigners than a Chinese emperor would. One of them, Marco Polo, has left a vivid (if one-sided) glimpse of Mongol China.One negative was that they invaded Eastern Europe moving all the way from Hungary and Poland. That is a vast territory to invade and what did those people do to deserve domination by these warriors? Eventually, the Mongols become too thirsty for power. They already defeated Tibet, Manchuria, Korea and the whole of China down to the South China Sea. They could not win Japan, which could be viewed as a negative or a positive.Overall, I personally would view the time of the Mongols as negative. They take over and defeat many lands becoming too thirsty for power, and subjugating the people in those lands. References:
