CRAP !!

A brilliant military strategist, Genghis Khan unified the Mongol tribes and cut a bloody swath across Asia, killing all who defied him.

Aristocrats were systematically executed, which is why he's credited with replacing aristocracy with meritocracy. But he spared artists, artisans, writers and language specialists.
As he conquered westward, he introduced the alphabet, the abacus, the compass, and a postal system, and is credited with outlawing torture and establishing freedom of religion.
