The Mongols: The East Rises, c. 1200 - 1400 CE
1,229 plays

This lesson traces out the surprising legacy of the Mongol conquerors, from Genghis Khan to Timur-i-Lenk. It outlines the resurgence and supremacy of the Eastern economies of India and China with the rise of the Ming Dynasty, and discusses the unimaginably wealthy African ruler Mansa Musa of Mali, along with the Black Plague, which was responsible for wiping out nearly 50% of Europe’s population.

Well done! Both are correct, though that's not the King of Al-Andalus but the Emir of Granada, the last major Muslim power in Al-Andalus.
