The Info List - Atabegs Of Yazd

--- Advertisement ---

The Atabegs of Yazd
(Persian: اتابکان یزد‎, Atābakān-e Yazd) were a local dynasty, which ruled the city of Yazd
from about 1141 to 1319. They succeeded the Kakuyids
to whom they were linked by marriage. From the names of the earlier members of the dynasty, it seems they were ethnically Persian, but like the Hazaraspids
they had adopted the Turkish title of Atabeg.[1] Most of the Atabegs of Yazd
were tributaries to the Saljuqs
and the Mongol Il-Khans until they were finally overthrown by the Muzaffarids.[2] List of rulers[edit]
