About the test
Unfortunately, Genghis Khan’s burial site remains unknown, much like his origin and genetic legacy. We may never trace his descendants, but the same is not true about his people. In 2020, the remains of dozens of ancient Mongolians who lived during the times of Genghis Khan were found. With the availability of over 50 genomes recovered from twelve sites in Mongolia, including Arkhangai, Bulgan, Dornod, Dundgobi, Khentii, Khovd, Khuvsgul Selenge, Sukhbaatar, Tuv, Umungobi, and Uvurkhangai, we can finally understand, for the first time in history, the origin of Khan’s people and their genetic legacy.
The test includes 25 medieval Mongolians who lived and fought during the times of Genghis Khan in the mid-13th century under the khaganate. The test provides a detailed historical, archeological, and paleogenetic background of medieval Mongols. It describes their relationships with other ancient Eurasians and their cultic practices. A detailed profile is available for every Mongol. Find out now how related you are to medieval Mongols.
