Comparing modern day mongolia is like comparing the holy roman empire to the roman empire, or saying that italy is a continuation of the roman empire. The roman empire did not just comprise of modern day italians neither. In fact the direct successor state that survived the collapse of the western roman empire was mostly greek.
No it wasn't. Language does not equal ethnicity or we would all be English. They were Romans, nothing more, nothing less.
Yes I meant turkic but anyway many people where part of the mongolian empire including those falling outside present day mongolia. Mongolia is not a continuation of the mongolian empire but it did comprise people that were part of it. I ve read some sources stating that he was turkic but the evidence seems shaky at best mostly based on names and language and myths so ill withdraw that assertion
I've heard that one before. It is an outcropping of turkish nationalism which has produced such wonderful works of pseudoscience, which all aim to justify that every steppe nation that employed horses was turkic. Really nice methodology behind that too. After all, according to these nationalists, attila was a turk as well.
