Yezonkai (Yesukay, Yesughi, or any of the other ways that you Westerners wish to define it) was the result of ten generations of khans; almost a deity.
His home was in Diloneldak. He led excursions of Mongols into the countryside to claim additional pasturelands. Once he had control of these pasturelands he invited the various minor khans to join his forces. In this way he controlled most of Mongolia.
There was one last impediment to Yesonkai’s control of the pastureland. This was the Khan of Katay.
He was a Tartar. Of course everyone that lived in central and eastern Asia was a Tartar. Only my father’s people were true Monguls, or Mongols, depending on how good you are at spelling and pronunciation.
