Khutulun Khan (aka Turandot)

The Mongolian Warrior Princess & Wrestling Champion

This week, Sara brings us the Mongolian Warrior Princess, Khutulun Khan! Her remarkable battlefield prowess was only eclipsed by her mad skills in the wrestling arena. This Princess-who-would-be-Khan (Great-great Granddaughter of Genghis Khan and cousin of Kublai Khan) wrestled & defeated hundreds of men to avoid arranged marriage. She helped her father, Kaidu, hold onto his massive territory, but does she inherit her father’s mantle when he dies? You’ll have to listen to find out!
