Born  to  a humble background in Shakhrisabz,near  Samarkand, this mighty monarch ruled almost half of the then know world.Traveled thousands  of miles and killing millions of people , razed countless cities to grounds ,through the dust of times the  ghost of Tamerlane still lives on .  One interesting fact about  Tamerlane is that,his great-great-great grandson started the Moughl dynasty  in the subcontinent which ruled it for nearly 300 plus years.contd………….
