Roman von Ungern-Sternberg

Roman von Ungern-Sternberg

Roman von Ungern-Sternberg, was an Austrian-born Russian anti-Bolshevik lieutenant general during the Russian Civil War and then he became an independent warlord whose Asiatic Cavalry Division wrested control of Mongolia from the Republic of China in 1921 after its occupation. What a ride this lad had?. Yes, that’s right he formed his own Mongol horde in goddamn 1921. He's the only reason Mongolia and its people still exist today. They would have been assimilated into either China or Russia otherwise. Dalai Lama acknowledged him as the incarnation of makahala, the god of death. He wanted to restore the entirety of Europe to a Buddhist monarchist continent. When he was executed, a bullet ricocheted off one of his medals and killed one of the men in the firing squad. This guy was deemed demigod and his story reads like a myth.
