Killed in single combat by Kublai Khan
Ariq Böke was the envious younger brother of Kublai Khan. He thirsts for his throne and his position as Khan of Khans. He is later killed.
Ariq is supposed to reinforce Jingim's siege of Wuchang but never arrives.
During the initial siege of Wuchang, Ariq fails to bring reinforcements. Jingim meets with him in episode 2 to test his diplomatic skills. Marco notices that he has not prepared enough grains for a field campaign and conculdes that Ariq never intended to bring reinforcements. At first Kublai doesn't wish to believe, but rallies his troops for a civil war. On the battlefield Kublai challenges Ariq to a duel, ultimately beheading him.
