Michael Palin as Genghis Khan just before his impressive death

Genghis Khan (1162-1227) was a Mongolian emperor and conqueror whose troops conquered the largest contiguous empire in history.

In the It's Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart sketch one viewer requests to see the death of Genghis Khan. The camera shows a clip of Genghis walking back and forth before suddenly dropping dead. (This contrary to the way the emperor actually died, in his bed caused by a nosebleed.)
