Genghis Khan, an example of a nasty, cruel conqueror (in Kirk's mind at least, if not in reality [who can be an expert in all things?]).
He was a nasty, tough conqueror who realised at the end of his life that civilisation has some value. A product of his age and all of that but i doubt he was not a nice guy.


He built the largest, most enduring land-based empire the pre-industrial world ever saw.
Large, yes, but it splinterred into smaller states fairly quickly.
So did Alexander the Great's, but he's not considered evil.
