Back to Asia

Mongolia, located in central Asia between Russia and China, attained its greatest power in the 13th century when Genghis Khan conquered China and part of Eastern Europe. In later centuries, it became part of China until 1921 when it gained independence. For a more detailed country profile, see CIA World Factbook on Mongolia.
