Firstly you should know the truth about the meaning of the names "Mongol" and "Tatar" in the medieval Eurasia:

the name "Mongol" until the 17th-18th centuries meant belonging to a political community, and was not the ethnic name. While "the name "Tatars" was "the name of the native nation of Genghis Khan …" , "… Genghis Khan and his people did not speak the language, which we now call the "Mongolian…" (Russian academic-orientalist V.P.Vasiliev, 19th century).

Also it must be said: now very few people know that Genghis Khan is a Turk. Tatars of Chingiz-Khan - medieval Tatars - were one of the Turkic nations, whose descendants now live in many of the fraternal Turkic peoples of Eurasia - among the Kazakhs, Bashkirs, Tatars, Uighurs, and many others.

And few people know, that the ethnos of medieval Tatars, which stopped the expansion of the Persians and the Chinese to the West of the World in Medieval centuries, is still alive. Despite the politicians of the tsars Romanovs and Bolsheviks had divided and scattered this ethnos to different nations...

Everything above mentioned and a lot about the true history of the fraternal Turkic peoples had been written , in detail and proved, in the book "Forgotten Heritage of Tatars" (by Galy Yenikeyev).

This e-book you can easily find in the Internet, on Smashwords company website.
