CHINGIZ KHAN had many sons and daughters, but those who were great and famous were those who were born of the Great Queen. And that Great Queen of CHINGIZ, whose name was 'YASUNSHIN BAGI', had four sons. The first was TUSHI, the second was SHAGHATAI (JAGHATAI),the third was 'AWKATAI, and the fourth was TULI. [CHINGIZ] made TUSHI chief of the hunt, because he loved hunting more than anything else, and he honoured their hunters. And he made JAGHATAI the head of the Law, DYASA they called him--he ordered; he delivered the administration of the kingdom to 'AWKATAI; and TULI the youngest he appointed governor of the troops and warriors. And for each one he marked out a place for his own special abode. And his brother whose name was  'AUTAKIN TUMAN, together with the rest of the children of his uncles and his kinsfolk, he sent to the land of the KHATAYE (CATHAYANS).
