    How would the illiterate Mongols have even known what archaic Mongolian was like, given that, by definition, there were no records of it? Did I just misunderstand what the video was saying? 2. The name "Genghis" is shown as being written in the secret history as a sequence of 5 characters: 成,吉,思,中 .   I had a flirtation with The Secret History before I ever read it. I'd seen all the press that the book and its enigmatic author received and knew that .
