Can you Imagine?
One of the blogs I read always has interesting articles up on historical events, and one of the recent ones made me raise an eyebrow. Apparently Genghis Khan was a very busy fellow! Some families are dying out, but not his, it looks like he has 16 million male descendants living today. Yes, you read that right. I did not think I did at the time, at first I thought it said "16" and did not know why that was a big deal. This means that he would have had to father anywhere from hundreds to thousands of children! How on earth did the guy manage to create an empire and still manage to spend so much time in the sack! So, that was my interesting read for the evening. To read the full article on Michelle's blog, click here. I must point out that the number only represents the men, there would be women too. Someone was a very busy fellow!
The article originally appeared in the Globe and Mail, and is linked directly to it on Michelle's blog.
