I ran the Dark Ages, Constantine the Great, Henry the 8th
Built with Genghis Khan,

The monarchs/emperors of the Roman, English, and Mongol empires, respectively (though Constantine lived before the Dark Ages and Henry lived after). Ghostface may have inspired Nas’s current infatuation with the English monarch.
