Fact of the Day: General Jebe

During a battle that Genghis Khan won, he was wounded by an arrow to the neck. After the battle, he commanded the losing side to admit who shot him even though he claimed they only shot his horse. A man named Zurgadai came forward on his own free will and confessed knowing that day could be his last. Appreciating his honestly, instead of wishing evil upon him he gave him the name Jebe and made him a notable general in his army.
