You live in the twelfth [or] thirteenth century. You have been born in the harsh, unforgiving lands of Mongolia, but you are blessed because you are a member of the Imperial Khanate, a leader of the invincible Mongol Horde. Armies and cities fall almost at will to your sweeping cavalry. Your army can destroy almost any resistance. You are a member of the vastest Empire in the world. The only difficulty is the fact that like all political and military establishments, personal politics result in the demise of institutions and armies.
