Yesügei Baghatur (died 1171), literally meaning Yesügei Warrior in the Mongolian language was chief of the Kiyad clan and the father of Temüjin (Genghis Khan), Khasar, Temüge, Temulun, Khajiun, Bekhter, and Belgutei. Yesügei was the son of Bartan-Baghatur, who was the son of Qabul Khan, who was recognized as a Khagan by the Jin Dynasty. Qabul Khagan was, in turn, the grandson of the Mongol chief Qaidu, the first to try to unite all of the Mongols.
Yesügei's children by his chief wife, Hoelun, were had four sons and one daughter: Temüjin, (son, later known as Genghis Khan), Khasar (son), Khajiun (son), Temüge (son), and Temulin (daughter). He also had two sons by his lesser wife Suchijile: Bekhter and Belgutei. Temüjin killed Bekhter in a fight for food, but Belgutei was a good friend of him, and became a general when Temujin became Genghis Khan.
When Temüjin was nine years old, Yesügei died. It is unclear how he died, but most people believe he was poisoned by Tatars while sharing a meal on the way home from finding his son Temüjin a wife.
