fiction about the famous historical figures. Each year, besides
legends and folk tales which survived until nowadays a lot of
fiction works are written. One of such world-famous historical
legends is the legend about Chingis Khan and his descendant —
the last khan of Kazakh nation — Kenessary Khan. This paper
offers a close analysis of the representation of Chinggis Khan in
the Tarikhnama in unpublished dastan composed by the turn of
the century Kazakh writer Shadi Zhangiruly.

highlighted in the second part of the paper. Kenesary Kasimov
who had roots from the dynasty of Chingizidy was the last khan
in the Kazakh steppe and the leader of the national liberation
movement in the epic poem Nysambai zhirau "Kenesary —
