    Ghengis Khan did pretty much the same, but I dont know about the numbers he killed in comparison.

    Niether were genocidal though. Mass murderers yes, genocidal no. Niether cared about wiping out any specific ethinic groups, just about inspiring fear in enemies to cause them to surrender without putting up a fight
    ten million

    I find that almost impossible to believe

    Contemporary sources say that Timur's forces killed about 19 million people during their conquests. That number is probably exaggerated, but Timur does seem to have enjoyed massacre for its own sake.
    Tamerlane Biography - Timur the Lame
    A poor article about Tamerlane,


    The cities of Asia at the time were orders of magnitude larger in population then those of europe. In military campaigns if the a city resisted or fought back, he had a tendancy to kill everyone but artists, tradesmen and scholars ( he captured them and brought them to Samarkand). Everyone else would be killed typically with their heads piled into pyramids.

    Only those that are insane

    Temur razed quite a few cities in his multiple decade long campaigns, I dont know how many he killed but I do expect it to be over 1 million easily

    Yes, but how many of those were the soldiers of the armies he has defeated and how many of those were innocent civilians? (murderer)

    Besides that, what group of people did Khan try to annihilate? (Genocide)
