Dude Changed status to publish February 9, 2022
13 sons and 16 daughters.
Some sources cite 10 children by four wives. It is not clear which of several competing Galician, Mongolian, Persian and Arabic versions of the Secret History of the Mongols is definitive. The most detailed version – from a manuscript called “The Differences Between Nations”, believed to have been written during Khan’s lifetime by a Buddhist monk in Mongolia – confirms the 24 names but claims more are not yet recorded because they were still in their cradles when he died in 1227 C.E.
