Three Mongol warriors

The Kheshig was the imperial guard of the Mongol Empire, charged with protecting the most important nobility of the empire. After the division of the empire in 1227, the Chagatai Khanate, Ilkhanate, Golden Horde, and the Empire of the Great Khan each had a kheshig. The leader of the kheshig was called the "Cherbi".
