Genghis Khan Had Sex With So Many Women That a Substantial Proportion Of Men In The World Are His Direct Line Descendant

In 2003 a groundbreaking historical genetics paper reported results which indicated that a substantial proportion of men in the world are direct line descendants of Genghis Khan.

By direct line, I mean that they carry Y chromosomes which seem to have come down from an individual who lived approximately 1,000 years ago.

As Y chromosomes are only passed from father to son, that would mean that the Y is a record of one’s patrilineage. Genghis Khan died 750 years ago, so assuming 25 years per generation, you get about 30 men between the present and that period.

In more quantitative terms, 10% of the men who reside within the borders of the Mongol Empire as it was at the death of Genghis Khan may carry his Y chromosome, and so 0.5% of men in the world, about 16 million individuals alive today, do so.

It’s estimated that one in every 200 men alive today are directly related to him.

Genghis Khan, Genghis also spelled Chinggis, Chingis, Jenghiz, or Jinghis, original name Temüjin, also spelled Temuchin, (born 1162, near Lake Baikal, Mongolia—died August 18, 1227), Mongolian warrior-ruler, one of the most famous conquerors of history, who consolidated tribes into a unified Mongolia and then extended his empire across Asia to the Adriatic Sea.

Genghis Khan was a warrior and ruler of genius who, starting from obscure and insignificant beginnings, brought all the nomadic tribes of Mongolia under the rule of himself and his family in a rigidly disciplined military state.
