Mongols are a civ appearing first in Civ1, where they share the gray color with the Indians.

Mongol hordes (notably under Genghis Khan) ravaged Europe from bases in central Asia. They eventually got beaten back to the eastern extremity of their former territory, a smallish area north of China, which got the name "Mongolia" applied by English explorers and/or mapmakers and has now stuck.

Whereas Civ1, Civ2, C-evo, Freeciv, and possibly Civ3 use "Mongol", Civ4 and Civ5 and CivRev apparently have Mongolians, which is probably logical if there are nations such as Uzbeks and Kazakhs and Tajiks and Georgians in the game occupying what used to be Mongol territory in the broad sense.

For simplicity, all are gathered on this page. The page for an individual game article should carry that game's name, linked from this page by a "redirect" if it is not "Mongol (...)". This page should not have great detail: give it just enough to show aspects that are noticeably different in a particular game.

  • Capital: Karakorum
  • Leader: Genghis Khan
  • Color: Tan
  • Begin the game with +50% trade from captured cities

Special characteristic: Barbarian villages captured turn into pop. 1 cities instead of gold/galleys, etc. (Friendly villages do not, they are the same as for any other Civilization.) This can be very helpful late in the game if the mongols discover Space flight first, as any remaining Barbarian villages can be turned into staging areas for invasions.

Genghis Khan

After uniting the Mongol tribes, he conquered the Chin Empire of northern China by 1215. For the next nine years his armies moved westward, overrunning all in their path and reaching well into eastern Europe. The Mongol hordes were armies of mounted bowmen who were outstanding riders and marksmen. Their recurved bow design was technologically ahead of Western weapons, being both compact and powerful. From his capital at Karakorum, south of Lake Baikal, the Great Khan presided over one of the largest land empires of history. In Civilization, the Mongols can be expected to expand very aggressively at the expense of the development of individual cities.
