The Ilkhanate, also spelled Il-khanate (Persian: ایلخانان‎, Ilxānān; Mongolian: Хүлэгийн улс, Hu’legīn Uls), was established as a khanate that formed the southwestern sector of the Mongol
Mongol
Empire, ruled by the Mongol
Mongol
House of Hulagu. It was founded in the 13th century and was based primarily in Iran
Iran
as well as neighboring territories, such as present-day Azerbaijan

and the central and eastern parts of present-day Turkey. The Ilkhanate

was originally based on the campaigns of Genghis Khan

in the Khwarazmian Empire
Empire
in 1219–24 and was founded by Hulagu Khan, son of Tolui
Tolui
and grandson of Genghis Khan. With the fragmentation of the Mongol
Mongol
Empire after 1259 it became a functionally separate khanate. At its greatest extent, the state expanded into territories that today comprise most of Iran, Iraq, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkmenistan, Turkey, western Afghanistan, and southwestern Pakistan. Later Ilkhanate rulers, beginning with Ghazan
Ghazan
in 1295, would convert to Islam.

Definition[edit] According to the historian Rashid-al-Din Hamadani, Kublai Khan

granted Hulagu (Hülegü) the title of Ilkhan

after his defeat of Ariq Böke. The term il-Khan means "subordinate khan" and refers to their initial deference to Möngke Khan

and his successor Great Khans of the Mongol empire. The title "Ilkhan", borne by the descendants of Hulagu and later other Borjigin

princes in Persia, does not materialize in the sources until after 1260.[4] Early Mongol

family.[5] Thus, the families of the latter's four sons appointed their officials under the Great Khan's governors, Chin-Temür, Nussal, and Korguz, in that region. Muhammad's son Jalal ad-Din Mingburnu
Jalal ad-Din Mingburnu
returned to Iran

in c. 1224 after his exile in India. The rival Turkic states, which were all that remained of his father's empire, quickly declared their allegiance to Jalal. He repulsed the first Mongol

Möngke Khan
prohibited ortog-merchants and nobles from abusing relay stations and civilians in 1251.[12] He ordered a new census and decreed that each man in the Mongol-ruled Middle East must pay in proportion to his property. Persia was divided between four districts under Arghun. Möngke Khan

granted the Kartids

authority over Herat, Jam, Pushang (Fushanj), Ghor, Khaysar, Firuz-Kuh, Gharjistan, Farah, Sistan, Kabul, Tirah, and Afghanistan.[13] First Ilkhan[edit] See also: Timeline of the Ilkhanate The founder of the Ilkhanate
Ilkhanate
dynasty was Hulagu Khan, grandson of Genghis Khan
Genghis Khan
and brother of both Möngke Khan
Möngke Khan
and Kublai Khan. Möngke dispatched Hulagu to establish a firm Toluid control over the Middle East and ordered him return to Mongolia
Mongolia
when his task was accomplished.[14] Taking over from Baiju
Baiju
in 1255 or 1256, Hulagu had been charged with subduing the Muslim
Muslim
kingdoms to the west "as far as the borders of Egypt". This occupation led the Turkmens to move west into Anatolia
Anatolia
to escape from the Mongolian rule. He established his dynasty over the southwestern part of the Mongol Empire

that stretched from Transoxiana
Transoxiana
to Syria. He destroyed the Ismaili

Nizari Hashshashins and the Abbasid Caliphate

in 1256 and 1258 respectively. After that he advanced as far as Gaza, briefly conquering Ayyubid Syria.

The death of Möngke forced Hulagu to return from the Persian heartland for the preparation of Khurultai (the selection of a new leader). He left a small force behind to continue the Mongol
Mongol
advance, but it was halted in Palestine in 1260 by a major defeat at the battle of Ain Jalut at the hands of the Mamluks of Egypt. Due to geo-political and religious issues and deaths of three Jochid princes in Hulagu's service, Berke
Berke
declared open war on Hulagu in 1262 and possibly called his troops back to Iran. According to Mamluk historians, Hulagu might have massacred Berke's troops and refused to share his war booty with Berke. Hulagu's descendants ruled Persia for the next eighty years, tolerating multiple religions, including Shamanism, Buddhism, and Christianity, and ultimately adopting Islam
Islam
as a state religion in 1295. However, despite this conversion, the Ilkhans remained opposed to the Mamluks, who had defeated both Mongol
Mongol
invaders and Crusaders. The Ilkhans launched several invasions of Syria, but were never able to gain and keep significant ground against the Mamluks, eventually being forced to give up their plans to conquer Syria, along with their stranglehold over their vassals the Sultanate of Rum
Sultanate of Rum
and the Armenian kingdom in Cilicia. This was in large part due to civil war in the Mongol Empire

and the hostility of the khanates to the north and east. The Chagatai Khanate

was an ally of the Ikhanate and also held nominal suzerainty over the latter (the Emperor being also Great Khan) for many decades.[15] Hulagu took with him many Chinese scholars and astronomers, and the famous Persian astronomer Nasir al-Din al-Tusi
Nasir al-Din al-Tusi
learned about the mode of the Chinese calculating tables from them.[16] The observatory was built on a hill of Maragheh. The dragon clothing of Imperial China was used by the Ilkhanids, the Chinese Huangdi (Emperor) title was used by the Ilkhanids due to heavy clout upon the Mongols

of the Chinese system of politics. Seals with Chinese characters were created by the Ilkhanids themselves besides the seals they received from the Yuan dynasty

which contain references to a Chinese government organization.[17] Franco- Mongol
Mongol
alliance[edit] Main article: Franco- Mongol

Western Europe
made many attempts to form an alliance with the Mongols, primarily with the Ilkhanate, in the 13th and 14th centuries, starting from around the time of the Seventh Crusade
Seventh Crusade
(West Europeans were collectively called Franks by Muslims and Asians in the era of the Crusades). United in their opposition to the Muslims (primarily the Mamluks), the Ilkhanate
Ilkhanate
and the Europeans were nevertheless unable to satisfactorily combine their forces against their common enemy.[18] Conversion to Islam[edit] In the immediate period following Hulagu, the Ilkhan
Ilkhan
elite increasingly adopted Tibetan Buddhism, in contrast to the Golden Horde and Chagatai Khanate
Chagatai Khanate
which had already been drifting towards Islam before the Ilkhanate's conquests, leading to the khans Berke
Berke
and Mubarak Shah, respectively. Christian powers were encouraged by what appeared to be an inclination towards Nestorian Christianity by Ilkhanate
Ilkhanate
rulers, but this was probably nothing more than the Mongols' traditional even-handedness towards competing religions.[19] The Ilkhans were thus markedly out of step with the Muslims they ruled. Ghazan, shortly before he overthrew Baydu, converted to Islam
Islam
under influence of Nawrūz, and his official favoring of Islam
Islam
as a state religion coincided with a marked attempt to bring the regime closer to the non- Mongol
Mongol
majority of the regions they ruled. Christian and Jewish subjects lost their equal status and again had to pay the jizya protection tax. Ghazan
Ghazan
gave Buddhists the starker choice of conversion or expulsion and ordered their temples to be destroyed; though he later relaxed this severity.[20]

In foreign relations, the Ilkhanate's conversion to Islam
Islam
had little to no effect on its hostility towards other Muslim
Muslim
states, and Ghazan continued to fight the Mamluks for control of Syria. The Battle of Wadi al-Khazandar, the only major victory by the Mongols
Mongols
over the Mamluks, ended the latter's control over Syria, though this lasted only a few months. For the most part, Ghazan's policies continued under his brother Öljeitü

despite suggestions that he might begin to favor the Shi'a

brand of Islam

after he came under the influence of Shi'a

theologians Al-Hilli

and Maitham Al Bahrani.[21] Öljeitü succeeded in conquering Gilan

on the Caspian coast, and his tomb in Soltaniyeh

remains the best known monument of Ilkhanid rule in Persia. The conversion of Mongols

was initially a fairly superficial affair. The process of establishment of Islam

did not happen suddenly. Öljeitü's historian Qāshāni records that Qutlugh-Shah

after losing patience with a dispute between Hanafis and Shafi'is, expressed his view that Islam

should be abandoned and Mongols

should return to the ways of Genghis Khan. Qāshani also stated that Öljeitü

had in fact reverted for a brief period. As Muslims, Mongols

showed a marked preference for Sufism
Sufism
with masters like Safi-ad-din Ardabili

often treated with respect and favour.[22] Disintegration[edit] In the 1330s, outbreaks of the Black Death
Black Death
ravaged the Ilkhanate empire. The last il-khan Abu Sa'id and his sons were killed by the plague.[23] In 1330, the annexation of Abkhazia
Abkhazia
resulted in the reunification of the Kingdom of Georgia. However, tribute received by the Il-Khans from Georgia sank by about three-quarters between 1336 and 1350 because of wars and famines.[24] Also Anatolian Beyliks
Anatolian Beyliks
were freed from Ilkhanate suzerenaity.[citation needed] After Abu Sa'id's death in 1335, the Ilkhanate
Ilkhanate
began to disintegrate rapidly and split up into several rival successor states, most prominently the Jalayirids. Hasar's descendant Togha Temür, who was the last of the obscure Ilkhan
Ilkhan
pretenders, was assassinated by Sarbadars
Sarbadars
in 1353. Timur
Timur
later carved a state from the Jalayirids, ostensibly to restore the old khanate. Historian Rashid-al-Din Hamadani wrote a universal history of the khans around 1315 that provides much material about them. In 1357, the Golden Horde
Golden Horde
conquered the Chobanid-held Tabriz
Tabriz
for a year, putting an end to the last hope for the return of the Ilkhanate. After the demise of the Ilkhanate, the Armenian Kingdom of Cilicia

lost Mongol

protection against the Mamluks and was destroyed by them in 1375. Legacy[edit]

Southwest Asia in 1345, ten years after the death of Abu Sa'id. The Jalayirids, Chobanids, Muzaffarids, Injuids, Sarbadars, and Kartids took the Ilkhanate's place as the major powers in Iran.

The emergence of the Ilkhanate
Ilkhanate
had an important historical impact in the Middle Eastern region. The establishment of the unified Mongol Empire
Empire
had significantly eased trade and commerce across Asia. The communications between the Ilkhanate
Ilkhanate
and the Yuan Dynasty headquartered in China encouraged this development.[25][26] The Ilkhanate
Ilkhanate
also helped to pave the way for the later Safavid dynastic state, and ultimately the modern country of Iran. Hulagu's conquests had also opened Iran
Iran
to Chinese influence from the east. This, combined with patronage from his successors, would develop Iran's distinctive excellence in architecture. Under the Ilkhans, Iranian historians also moved from writing in Arabic
Arabic
to writing in their native Persian tongue.[27] The rudiments of double-entry accounting were practiced in the Ilkhanate; merdiban was then adopted by the Ottoman Empire. These developments were independent from the accounting practices used in Europe.[28] This accounting system was adopted primarily as the result of socio-economic necessities created by the agricultural and fiscal reforms of Ghazan
Ghazan
Khan in 1295-1304.

as a tribal title in 19th/20th century Iran[edit] The title Ilkhan
Ilkhan
resurfaced among the Qashqai nomads of Southern Iran in the 19th century. Jan Mohammad Khan started using it from 1818/19 and this was continued by all the following Qashqai leaders. The last Ilkhan
Ilkhan
was Naser Khan, who in 1954 was pushed into exile after his support of Mossadeq. When he returned during the Islamic Revolution in 1979, he could not regain his previous position and died in 1984 as the last Ilkhan
Ilkhan
of the Qashqai. [29] See also[edit]
