High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Yesun Temur (Classical
Mongolian: Yesun temur; Khalkha Mongolian: Yosontomor haan) was a
great-grandson of Kublai Khan to rule as Emperor of the Yuan
Dynasty from 1323 to 1328. He is regarded as the 10th Khagan of the
Mongols in Mongolia. In Chinese, Yesun Temur Khan who was very fond
of the traditional ways of the Mongols is known as the Emperor
Taiding from his era's name. His name means "Nine Iron Khan" in the
Mongolian language. He was the emperor visited by the Franciscan
monk Odoric, who left an excellent record of his travels. In 1323
when Shidebala Gegeen Khan (Emperor Yingzong) was assassinated by
Grand Censor Tegshi and Esen Temur, the rebellious group welcomed
Yesun Temur since he was mothered by Buyan Kelmish of the
Khunggirad clan. According to the official history of the Yuan,
Yesun Temur caused Tegshi's envoy Walus to be seized, and sent
notice of the plot to the Great Khan Shidebala; but the messengers
arrived too late.
