Nine White Banners
May 5th, 1260, Kublai Khan became the Great Khan on the death of Genghis Khan’s gradson, Mongke. He completed the conquest of China, moved the Mongol capitol from Karakorum to Beijing, and founded the Yuan dynasty. Kublai Khan was nicknamed “Setsun Khan” - “Wise Khan”.
This chinese painting of Kublai Khan hunting was done in 1280.
Happy slightly late Kublai Khan day, a holiday I just made up. :)
