Answer 1

None, because the Mongol Empire was not the largest in the world.

The Mongol Empire was the second largest in the world, with a total land area of 24 million km2.

The largest empire in the world was the British Empire, with a total land area of 33.7 million km2.

Either way, the leader of the Mongol Empire was Genghis Khan.

Answer 2

While the British Empire was the largest in the history of the world, the Mongols for a short time controlled the largest contiguous land empire in world history. While Genghis Khan founded the empire, it reached its largest united extant under his grandson, Ogedei, who invaded Western Russia. After Ogedei's death the empire fragmented into several different Khanates.

The Mongol Empire reached its greatest extent under Kublai Khan (reigned 1260 -1294). He was the fifth Khagan (Great Khan) of the Mongol Empire and the founder of the Yuan Dynasty in China, a division of the Mongol Empire.
