Zhao (pre-modern Chinese history, U. of Toronto) does not chronicle the royal marriages between 1206 and 1368, but describes features that characterize the phenomenon as a whole. In particular, he examines various aspects of Mongol royal family marriage strategies and the political implications of such marriages. He also looks at the marriage partners to clarify how and why marriages were arranged and determined, and the relationships between the royal family and the in laws.
