I am shocked that no information has been recorded on the ancestry and descent of Genghis Khan. It is very easy information to find.
Genghis Khan followed the contemporary tradition by taking several morganatic wives in addition to his principal wife, whose property passed to their youngest son, also following tradition. Found Genghis Khan listed on Wikipedia - Morganatic Marriages. He is listed as one of the Royal men who married morganatically.

I would prefer Cathegory:GenghisKhanDynasty (or notables) as the subset of Category:Mongolian Notables. The special interest of Cathegory:GenghisKhanDynasty is that it can be traced up to now by DNA. With future progress in DNA it would be even more precise and wide.

Seeing as Genghis Khan is such an iconic member of genetic history, it would be useful and should be easy to build up the tree around him for some people with the right permissions: This Wikipedia article is a good reference, other people have done the research.

"In 2003 a groundbreaking historical genetics paper reported results which indicated that a substantial proportion of men in the world are direct line descendants of Genghis Khan.." [1]"as many as 0.5% of the total world population might be descendants of Genghis Khan" [2]
