    Anyway, Genghis Khan left a legacy of government, trade, art, science etc.

    I think he a heroic figure.

    Independent Mongolia is very friendly to Russians. Hate the Chinese though lol
    So....basically all of ancient Monoglia is located inside either modern Russia or modem China.

    Which is what I thought.

    Geography is not my strong suit, lol.

    Not "inside" either Russia or China. Mongolia is a sovereign state bordering on those two countries.

    Well, how many people are taught that in school?

    Nobody I know. Ancient history classes should be covering Greece, then Rome, then Mongolia, IMO.
