The "Great Khan" and Mongol China - lectures
Who was Kublai Khan, "the lord of lords" whom Marco Polo so admired? How can a foreign people have achieved the conquest of the whole of China, and with what strategies did the invaders succeed in hanging onto power for almost one hundred years? Were they really as tolerant and as cosmopolitan as the Venetian writer suggests? In this lecture we'll be taking a look at China as it was in the days of the Mongol domination, at the political reforms and cultural innovations, the daily life and the beliefs of its multiethnic population.
