Alakhai Bekhi
Alakhai Bekhi (Alagai Bäki; born c. 1191, died after 1230) was a daughter of Genghis Khan and his first wife Börte. She played significant role behind the scenes during her father’s lifetime. Life In 1206, the Ongud allies of Genghis Khan attended his great Kurultai and brought gifts from their lands. In recognition of their loyalty, Alakhai was betrothed to a relative, perhaps the son, of Alaqush of the Ongud. When she was about sixteen years old, she went south of the Gobi Desert, where the Ongud lived a semi-nomad life. This gave Genghis Khan a foothold beyond the Gobi Desert, where many sedentary kingdoms of large populations were located. Alakhai Beki supplied the Mongols with horses and provisions, whenever they came south. In 1211, the Ongud revolted against Alakhai and tried to kill her. She managed to escape, but her husband and other supporters were killed. She took two of her stepsons with her to the Mongol army. Genghis Khan then sent part of his army with her and ...
