Following an age-old custom of the steppe, she became Yesugei's obedient wife after he abducted her from the Tatar man to whom she was betrothed.
Hoelun put up a spirited defense of her family, but her pleas fell on deaf ears and she was forced to feed them by grubbing for roots and snagging fish from the Onon River.

But Hoelun, to whom the splendour of the moistless Mongolian sky was an everyday sight, paid little attention.
And while Hoelun busied herself with the monotonous everyday tasks of life — while she tended her new husband’s yurt and cooked his food, or slept at his side — the child of Destiny took shape within her body.
He was born in the year of the Hare according to the Calendar of the Twelve Beasts — the year 1157 of the Christian era, — clutching a clot of blood within his right hand.

Hoelun went up and down the Onon River day and night collecting plants and digging up roots to feed seven children, the oldest one under ten and the youngest one still an infant (Weatherford).
Begter saw them just as they were about to kill him and, instead of trying to run, he sat still and waited for their arrows, refusing to exhibit any fear in the presence of his younger brothers.
Borte interrupted Hoelun before she could speak and mentioned a rumor she had heard that Jamuka often took new friends and grew tired of old ones.

Hoelun versuchte die Stämme zusammenzuhalten und die Führung für ihren minderjährigen Sohn wahrzunehmen; aber als Frau hatte sie einen schlechten Stand.
Als Hoelun noch einmal versuchte die aufbrechenden Massen zurückzuhalten, wurde ein alter Krieger, welcher sich ihr zur Seite stellte, kurzerhand niedergestochen und schließlich auch die Herden Yesügeis entführt.
Hoelun schritt nur bedingt ein, da sie der Meinung war, daß Temudschin es lerne müsse sich durchzusetzen - schließlich war er der Erbe Yesügeis und nichts sprach dagegen, daß er als Erwachsener wieder Ansprüche geltend machen konnte.

Genghis Khan was born by the name of Temujin sometime between 1162 and 1167, the second son of Yesükhei, a tribal chief of the Kiyad (singular: Kiyan).
His mother Hoelun taught him many lessons from surviving in the harsh climates of Mongolia, especially the need for alliances with others, which would shape his understanding in his later years for unification.
Around the age of 16, Temüjin married his Börte of the Konkirat tribe, and received a fl sable coat as a dowry; this was the foundation for his increased wealth from conquest.

Hoelun also told him of his ancestors, the Borjigin, the Blue-eyed heroes, sons of the legendary Blue-Wolf.
The forest Merkit had never forgotten the insult done to them by Yesugei when he had snatched Hoelun away from one of their men.
They raided the small camp on the border of the Orion, carried off newly-wedded Bortei to avenge upon her the old wrong, and pursued Temujin as long as they could — until he reached Burkan Kaldun, the “mountain of Power,” and took refuge in the thick woods upon its slopes.

When the authority of the wife of Yesugei and mother of Temuchin, Hoelun, was challenged by some of her deceased husband's rivals, the Tayichi'ut clan, which had been part of the congregation of tribes for whom Yesugei had been the leader.
The Secret History describes mother Hoelun as holding the banner of her husband and shouting to them to return to her.

His mother, Hoelun, taught him many lessons about survival in the harsh landscape and even grimmer political climate of Mongolia, especially the need for alliances with others, a lesson which would shape his understanding in his later years.

 Mongolian Language Project
Women are presented in The Secret History generally in three different ways: as developed characters with relatively large roles in the narrative, as characters whose actions are described in a short anecdote, and as characters who are only briefly mentioned as being taken as a wife.
Among the women in the first group are Genghis Khan’s (Temujin's) mother Hoelun and his principal wife Borte, both of whom are portrayed as influential in numerous important decisions.
The women of the second group are to a great extent presented in a positive light, as strong, courageous, and a rallying influence.

 Books At Transworld - Book extract from Kublai Khan
It is a strange fact that the world's greatest land empire, the very image of masculine dominance, owed its existence and growth to extraordinary women.
As a child, young Genghis was a down-and-out, cared for by his widowed mother Hoelun, who was rejected by her clan and reduced to scrabbling on mountain flanks for juniper berries.
It was Hoelun who showed him what it took to survive; how to rebuild family links, call upon traditional friendships, create new ones, forge alliances and reward loyalty, never seeking personal gain, always looking out for ordinary people and their families.
