How many children does Genghis Khan had according to historians?
Historians disagree on how many children Genghis Khan had. There is no surviving record of any kind to either confirm or disprove the numbers. Most historians cite his son Tolui as the father of 20-22 sons, and this number is popular because it gives credit for about one in three babies born at that time being fathered by Genghis Khan. To put this into perspective, modern DNA testing has estimated that Henry VIII was the father of eight pregnancies which would be approximately 1 in 16 pregnancies (6%). So a reasonable estimate for Genghis Khan from modern genetics would be something like a quarter, even if all his sons were illegitimate and he never had sex with anyone other than him wife while he was married
