Gereje History

In the 13th century, the Emperor Kublai Khan awarded Marco Polo a gold tablet in the form of a long piece of currency named « GEREGE » along with a password, which ensured numerous privileges to the beholder.
With this golden passport, Marco Polo obtained all necessary protections, supplies and assistance which included horses, food and equipment for his safe return to Venice accompanied by his immense fortune.

  Marco Polo

Marco Polo - Gereje history

Marco Polo was a man who traveled over 10,000 miles exploring the continent of Asia and Europe.

When Marco Polo was about 21 Kublai Khan sent him on very important business to a distant part of China. He did the work well and from that time was often employed as an ambassador of the Chinese monarch. His travels were sometimes in lands never before visited by Europeans and Marco Polo had many strange adventures among the almost unknown tribes of Asia. Step by step he was promoted by Kublai Khan. For several years he was governor of a great Chinese city. Finally Marco Polo and his father and uncle desired to return to Venice. They had all served Kublai Khan faithfully and he had appreciated it and given them rich rewards.

Marco Polo stayed in Khan’s court for 17 years, acquiring great wealth in jewels and gold. Marco did not provide full account of his long journey home. The sea journey took 2 years. In Persia they also learned of the death of Kublai Khan. However his protection outlived him, for it was only by showing his golden tablet of authority that they were able to travel safely through the bandit-ridden interior. Marco admitted that the passports of golden tablets were powerful.

gerege - paiza - Gereje history

A golden tablet (paiza in Chinese, gerege in Mongolian) opened doors allowing Marco to travel anywhere in the Mongol kingdom. It also gave them access to an armed escort of 200 soldiers and fresh horses at every town that they entered. There are Gerege in wood, silver and gold depending on the rank of the recipient.

The gerege tablet was the special VIP passport, authorizing the travelers to receive throughout the Great Khan’s dominions such horses, lodging, food and guides as they required.

Kublai Khan - Gereje History

Kublai Khan was a grandson of Genghis Khan. He was the fifth Great Khan of the Mongol Empire, reigning from 1260 to 1294. In 1271, Kublai established the Yuan Dynasty, which ruled over present-day Mongolia, China, Korea, and some adjacent areas, and assumed the role of Emperor of China.

By 1279, the Yuan forces had overcome the last resistance of the Southern Song Dynasty, and Kublai became the first non-Chinese Emperor to conquer all of China.
