My understanding is that the Mongol influence on the cultures, genetics, languages and government can still be seen everywhere from China to parts of Russia to Iran and parts of the Middle East.

While Vikings are said to have been given control of Russia, but also through the British Empire and the United States, they went on to control huge swaths of the world as well.

So, whose impact can been seen more today?

My gut says culturally and politically the Vikings, but genetically, probably the Mongols.
