|Khagan of the Mongols|
Molon Khan (Mongolia: Молон хаан, Molon haan, died 1466), was the Mongol Khan of the Northern Yuan dynasty based in Mongolia and he was the eldest son of Tayisung Khan Toghtoa Bukha). Mulan Khan succeeded his younger brother Markörgis Khan in 1465 and it was prophesied "By you the great people will regain strength in legal order. Ascend to throne as Khaan". But he met the same fate as his younger brother: due to lack of real power, he was killed by warring Mongol nobles who fought each other for dominance. After his death, the position of great khan remain vacant for nearly a decade as warring Mongol clans fought each other for power, and it was not until 1475 that the next khan, Manduulun Khan (Manduyul), was crowned.
