This paper explores the role of Chingis Khan in shaping Central Asia. Also cited is his role in destroying the ancient cultures, ethnic and linguistic groups of the region. The paper further describes Chingis Khan's conquests and how they resulted in the fusion of many Eastern and Western elements. Nevertheless, the dream of an empire, combined with an ability to hold together or reproduce that empire, created the modern situation of fragmentation and warfare. The modern states of Central Asia still live with, and struggle with, the legacy of Chingis Khan.
