About Sorkaktani-Beki

see ref: pages 239/240 Daily Life in the Mongol Empire by George Lane

Apres la defaite finale de Kereit, Genghis donne Sorghatani en mariage a son fils Tolui. Sa soeur epousa Jochi ce qui crea une alliance durable entre les deux maisons.

The Khereid (Mongolian: Хэрэйд/Khereid) was one of the most dominant five Mongol tribal confederations (khanates ) in the Mongolian plateau during the 12th century. As allies of Genghis Khan , the Khereid were influential in the rise of the Mongol Empire. In the 11th century, they converted to the Church of the East and were a key example of prominent Christians among the Mongols.

The Khereid were located between the mountain ranges of Khangai and Khentii Mountains . They were centered on the site of the present day city of Ulan Bator and in the willow groves of the Tuul River to the west of the Khamag Mongol and to the east of the Naimans .

The last ruler, Tooril Khan , gained fame as far away as Europe for his battles with Muslims, and several women from the Khereid clan became influential women in the Mongol court. Sorghaghtani Beki, the younger daughter of Tooril's brother Jakha Khambu, married a son of Genghis Khan, and their four sons, including the khagans Kublai Khan and Möngke Khan, became prominent leaders of the empire.

SORGHAQTANI Beki, daughter of JAGAMBU of Kerait (-Feb 1252). Abul-Ghazi Bahadur records that, after the death of “Kouyouk Khan” (son of Ogodai, see Chapter 4), all the descendants of Jinghiz Khan agreed that the successor should be chosen from among “les fils de Touli Khan, dont la veuve Sourqouqti-Bigui était aimée du peuple”[289]. The senior wife of Jochi was “Bekutemish the daughter of Yakembo, brother of the Wang Khan of the of three...sisters, the other two being Siurkukteni the wife of Tului, and Abika the wife of Jingis whom he afterwards a Urut prince who was acting as his bodyguard”[290]. She was a Nestorian Christian. She refused the offer of Ogedei to marry his son Guyuk after the death of her husband
