Temujin and Genghis Khan are same person. This poll is slanted from the start

It gives everyone a chance to register two votes for the greatest nomadic general. wink

One could also point out that Khal Drogo, as a fictional character, is not a valid choice.

Chief Joseph and Moses don't qualify, not being nomads.

Moses was a nomad for a time …

Moses was a general?

I thought he was something to do with carting rocks about?

Quite right about Temujin and Genghis Khan – Genghis Khan was a honorific and a title, not a name

Moses was a nomad for almost 80 years, not so much a General. Now Joshua was both and conquered a nation – however not really in the greatest general category.

Chief Joseph was good for a time but not really in the greatest category – he didn't conquer anything.

I like both of them but not the greatest.

It all depends on one's interpretation of "nomadic". The Oxford dictionary describes it as "roaming from pasture to pasture, or a member of a tribe, or a wanderer."
Most of The Mongols grew from tribal to Imperial, but I don't think that I would class Kublai Khan for instance as nomadic, by this time he ruled an empire from a fixed capital.
