Would not the difference between Alexander and Genghis Khan be that Alexander came from a long established civilization and had culture and education.  These are the benefits of culture built by 
agrarian people.  

Genghis Khan came from a harsh climate where people lived by hunting, not agriculture.  His people were nomadic and this way of life does not encourage the development of culture.   He was not much better than an animal.  He would have continued to kill everyone and raze the land to return it to grazing land for his horses, if the Chinaman he carried with him, had not convinced him to leave people alone if they paid a tribute.  The man from China could write, so we do have a written account of Khan's history.  For sure he did not have the culture that Alexander had.  

I.e. what carol said id like to highlight that again for anyone who thinks alex is greater

To the guys who are shouting technologies and sht!Genghis didn’t even know bombs,catapults and other shts existed until he conquered china(the main weapons of the mongols were bows/arrows,swords).And some guys are saying shts about alex being outnumbered:in the final battle genghis’s army had 100,000 men and china had 450,000 men and genghis still won.He was a Master strategist a real genius even against the kwarism empire he raped!and to the guys that are saying that alex is smarter then think again genghis CREATED biological warfare!Genghis Even scolded his son once cuz he lost 5,000 of the ~14,000 men when he won against 32,000 kwarism soldiers.And genghis’s earlylife was sht!He was abandoned by his tribe and gone through many hardships.he was NOT born in a fancy house with everything in it like alex!


Also, Gengis created a legacy-  1 in every 16 people will have genghis's DNA

Genghis started with nothing and ended up with more

There's no need for that sort of language. If you talk shit people will take you for a fool, not a badass muthaf**kaLOL

Alexander lived 15 centuries before Khan!  The comparison is meaningless.... Alexander's cultural legacy is much more important too...

Dudes Genghis khan was a beast
He was a great strategist and defeated armies way bigger than his. He even learned how to use a sword and bow when he was 7. Alexander the great wow more like Alexander the loser his empire fell before his eyes.
 
Come on guys just admit Genghis khan is better
