Ex. Busso Peus, Auction 24-26 March 1971, lot 2127.

Chingiz Khan, the greatest of all Khans, chose Töregene from the Merkit tribe, to be the second wife of his son and heir Ögedei. When Ögedei Khan died in 1241, Töregene proved to be powerful enough to become Khatun (female counterpart to Khan) and rule the empire until 1246, when she succeeded in getting her son Güyük elected as the third Great Khan.
