Genghis Khan, also spelled Chinggis Khan (1162–1227) was the ruler of the Mongol Empire, which was the most expansive empire of its time. The fearsome attacks of the army of Genghis Khan on various kingdoms form the basis for the Mongol campaigns in Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings.


Genghis Khan is a unit available only in the Scenario Editor and makes his only appearance in the first Mongol Campaign, the Crucible but cannot be controlled by the player. Genghis Khan is portrayed as a Mongol Mangudai but is much stronger in overall statistics. He is one of the strongest heroes in the game before the subsequent expansions for the HD version.

Trivia Edit

  • Crucible, first mission of the campaign, is the only level in the campaign where Genghis Khan himself actually appears.
  • In Old Patches (until 1.0c/1.0e) there is a small chance of Genghis Khan troops push him into the conversion zone of the initial player's troops, causing him to be controllable by the player, making the scenario ridiculously easy.

Campaign Edit

The Genghis Khan campaign consists of six scenarios. The player plays as the Mongols, and the player color is orange.

Trivia Edit

  • In the DS version, Genghis Khan is a hero unit who accompanies the player throughout the entire campaign. His abilities include Nomadic Travel, Overwhelming Siege, Mongol Terror and Patron of the Arts.
  • Genghis Khan is one of only two Age of Kings characters with the distinction of appearing in the campaign of two different Age of Empires games, the other being Joan of Arc.
