Erdeniin Tobchi

The Erdeniin Tobchi (Mongolian: Хаадын үндэсний эрдэнийн товч, ᠬᠠᠳ ᠤᠨ
ᠦᠨᠳᠦᠰᠦᠨ ᠦ
ᠡᠷᠳᠡᠨᠢ ᠶᠢᠨ
, summary of the Khans' treasure) is a national chronicle and set of Mongolian judicial laws over historical content in the 17th century. It was written by Saghang Sechen in 1662.[1]

The Erdeniin Tobchi is commonly called The Chronicles of Sagang Sechen.[2] A first translation into a western language (German) was published by the Moravian missionary Isaac Jacob Schmidt in 1829.[3] The English translation by John Krueger is called The Bejeweled Summary of the Origin of the Khan: A History of the Eastern Mongols to 1662.[4]

It is generally regarded by nearly all modern Mongolists as a primary source of accurate Mongol history. The names in this work are reputed to be uncorrupted.
