This site says:

Tamerlane’s ambition was to rebuild the empire of Genghis Khan, who had died a century earlier.

A similar claim is posted in this site:

Timur’s sole motive was to rebuild the empire that was once built by the barbarous Genghis Khan but in an attempt to do so, he ended but building the Timurid Dynasty.

Did Tamerlane express the desire to rebuild the empire of Genghis Khan?
