HISTORY

The Kazakh Khanate
Kazakh Khanate
was founded in 1456-1465 by Janybek Khan and Kerey Khan , on the banks of Jetsu ("seven rivers") in the southeastern part of the present-day Republic of Kazakhstan
Kazakhstan
. The founding of the Kazakh Khanate is considered the ethnogenesis of the Kazakh nation. The formation of the independent Kazakh Khanate
Kazakh Khanate
began when several tribes under the rule of sultans Janybek and Kerey departed from the Khanate of Abu\'l-Khayr Khan . The sultans led their people toward Mogolistan , eventually settling and founding an independent state. The new Khanate soon became a buffer state between the Mongolians and the Khanate of Abu'l-Khayr. From the sixteenth through the early nineteenth century, the most powerful nomadic people were the Kazakhs and the Oirats.

JANYBEK KHAN AND KEREY KHAN (1465–1480)

Although both Janybek Khan and Kerey Khan were considered the founding rulers of the Kazakh Khanate, it was Kerei Khan who initially wielded the most power. Upon the death of Kerei Khan in 1470, Janybek Khan became the sole ruler. The early years of the Kazakh Khanate
Kazakh Khanate
were marked by struggles for control of the steppe against the Uzbek leader Muhammad Shaybani
Muhammad Shaybani
. In 1470, the Kazakhs
Kazakhs
defeated Muhammad Shaybani
Muhammad Shaybani
at the city of Turkistan , forcing the Uzbeks
Uzbeks
to retreat south to Samarkand
Samarkand
and Bukhara
Bukhara
.

BURUNDUK KHAN (1480–1511)

In 1480 Kerei Khan 's son Burunduk became khan. During his reign the Kazakhs
Kazakhs
were able to muster an army of 50,000 men and to repeatedly defeat the forces of Muhammad Shaybani
Muhammad Shaybani
along the Syr Darya
Syr Darya
river.

KASYM KHAN (1511–1521)

The manuscript of "Tarikh-Safavi", written in ancient Persian by Persian historians, wrote about Kasim Khan, ruler of Dasht-i-Kipchak. The manuscript describes how a Kazakh squad of soldiers helped Khan Sheibani of Bukhara
Bukhara
annex the Iranian city of Khorasan. Kasim Khan committed a squad of eight thousand dzhigits and Khorasan was taken.

EXPANSION OF THE KAZAKH KHANATE

Greatest extent of Kazakh Khanate.

During the reign of Kasym Khan , the territories of the Kazakh Khanate expanded considerably. As Mirza Muhammad Haidar Dughlat
Mirza Muhammad Haidar Dughlat
later wrote in his Tarikh-i-Rashidi, " Kasym Khan now brought the Dasht-i-Kipchak under his absolute control, in a manner that no one, with the exception of Jochi
Jochi
, had ever done before. His army exceeded a thousand thousand". Kasym Khan instituted the first Kazakh code of laws in 1520, called "Қасым ханның қасқа жолы" (transliterated, "Qasım xannıñ qasqa jolı" — "Bright Road of Kasym Khan"). Kasym Khan also ratified his alliance with the Timurid leader Babur
Babur
, particularly after the fall of the Shaybanids , and was thus praised by the Mughals and the populace of Samarqand
Samarqand
.

MUMASH KHAN (1521–1523)

Manṣūr Khān led an expedition against the Kazakhs
Kazakhs
in 1521 in response to their raids from Sayram into the Farghana . Thereafter, Sayram remained out of the hands of the Uzbeks
Uzbeks
and came under control of the Kazakhs.

TAHIR KHAN (1523–1529)

BUIDASH KHAN (1529–1533)

TOGYM KHAN (1533–1538)

KHAK-NAZAR KHAN (1537–1580)

Under Khak-Nazar Khan, also known as Haq-Nazar Khan or Ak Nazar Khan, the Kazakh Khanate
Kazakh Khanate
faced competition from several directions: the Nogai Horde in the west, the Khanate of Sibir in the north, Moghulistan
Moghulistan
in the east and the Khanate of Bukhara
Bukhara
in the south. Initially, Khak-Nazar Khan led the Kazakhs
Kazakhs
in two major battles against Khanate of Bukhara
Bukhara
at Tashkent
Tashkent
, then against the Chagatai leader Abdur-Rashid Khan . In 1568, the Kazakhs
Kazakhs
successfully defeated the Nogai Horde at the Emba River and reached Astrakhan
Astrakhan
, but were repelled by Russian forces.

SHYGAI KHAN (1580–1582)

TAUEKEL KHAN (1582–1598)

Tauekel Khan expanded control of the Kazakh Khanate
Kazakh Khanate
over Tashkent
Tashkent
, Fergana , Andijan
Andijan
and Samarkand
Samarkand
. In 1598, Kazakh forces approached Bukhara
Bukhara
and besieged it for 12 days, but afterwards the Bukharan leader Pir-Muhammad and reinforcements under the command of his brother Baki-Muhammad pushed back the Kazakhs. In that battle, Tauekel Khan was wounded, and died during the retreat back to Tashkent
Tashkent
.

ESIM KHAN (1598–1628)

After the death of Tauekel Khan came Esim Sultan, son of Sheehan Khan. His reign was the time of the next (third) strengthening of the Kazakh Khanate
Kazakh Khanate
after Kasim Khan and Khak-Nazar Khan. Esim Khan moved the capital of the khanate to Sygnak in Turkestan
Turkestan
and suppressed the revolts of the Karakalpaks.

There followed a 15-year period of calm between the Kazakh Khanate and the Khanate of Bukhara.

Esim Khan established peace with the Khanate of Bukhara
Bukhara
and returned control of Samarkand
Samarkand
to them. However, Bukhara
Bukhara
was still bitter about the loss of Tashkent
Tashkent
, which led to additional conflicts. Starting in 1607, the Khanate of Bukhara
Bukhara
engaged in several battles and eventually obtained control of Tashkent.

Esim Khan united the Kazakh army and began a campaign against the Tashkent
Tashkent
Khan Tursun Muhammad and Khan of Bukhara. In 1627, he defeated the enemy. Esim Khan abolished the Tashkent
Tashkent
Khanate and the war finally ended.

SALQAM-JANGIR KHAN (1629–1680)

During Salqam-Jangir Khan's reign, a new and powerful rival of the Kazakhs
Kazakhs
appeared in the east, known as the Zunghar Khanate . The Zunghar had recently converted to Mahayana
Mahayana
Buddhism
Buddhism
and their Erdeni Batur believed he could reestablish the 13th-century empire of Genghis Khan . However, much had changed since the days of the Mongol Empire
Mongol Empire
, and the Kazakhs
Kazakhs
, like the Kirghiz and the Tatars
Tatars
, had almost entirely converted to Islam
Islam
under the authority of Emir
Emir
Timur
Timur
, who also reestablished new centers of power such as Samarqand
Samarqand
and Bukhara , which had greatly influenced the founding of the Kazakh Khanate.

In 1652, the Zunghar leader Erdeni Batur attempted to eliminate the Kazakh Khanate
Kazakh Khanate
and its inhabitants; he dispatched more than 50,000 Zunghar warriors against the Kazakh Khanate, which refused to submit to him. The early stages of their ferocious conflict took place in the Altai Mountains
Altai Mountains
and later battles were fought on the vast steppes. Unable to halt the advance of the Zunghars, the Kazakh Ghazis and their leader Salqam-Jangir Khan's forces were defeated. Unfortunately in the year 1680, Salqam-Jangir Khan died in battle, protecting his people against the Zunghars.

TAUKE KHAN (1680–1718)

Tauke Khan was elected as the leader of the Kazakh Khanate immediately after the death of Salqam-Jangir Khan, and he led the battered Kazakh warriors across the steppes to resist the advance of the Zunghars . Unfortunately the already weakened Kazakhs
Kazakhs
were once again faced with defeat at Sayram and soon lost many major cities to the Zunghars.

Tauke Khan soon sought alliances with the Kirghiz in the southeast who were also facing a Zunghar invasion in their Issyk-Kul Lake region and even the Uyghurs
Uyghurs
of the Tarim Basin
Tarim Basin
. In 1687, Zunghars besieged Hazrat-e Turkestan
Hazrat-e Turkestan
and were forced to retreat after the arrival of Subhan Quli Khan.

In 1697, Tsewang Rabtan became the leader of the Zunghar Khanate , and he dispatched several of his commanders to subjugate Tauke Khan and many major wars between the Zunghars and the Kazakh Khanate continued into the following years: 1709, 1711—1712, 1714 and 1718. The Kazakh Khanate
Kazakh Khanate
had indeed been weakened by the confrontation and nearly one-third of their population had been lost by the ensuing conflict. With Tauke Khan's death in 1718, the Kazakh Khanate splintered into three Jüz
Jüz
— the Great jüz , the Middle jüz and the Little jüz . Each Jüz
Jüz
had its own Khan from this time onward.

Tauke Khan is also known for refining the Kazakh code of laws, and reissuing it under the title "Жеті Жарғы" (transliterated, "Jeti Jarği"—"Seven Charters").

ABLAI KHAN (1771–1781)

Ablai Khan was a khan of the Middle jüz or Horde who managed to extend his control over the other two jüzes to include all of the Kazakhs
Kazakhs
. Before he became khan, Ablai participated in the wars against the Zunghars and proved himself a talented organizer and commander. He led numerous campaigns against the Kokand Khanate and the Kyrgyz. In the latter campaign his troops liberated many cities in Southern Kazakhstan
Kazakhstan
and even captured Tashkent. During his actual reign, Ablai Khan did his best to keep Kazakhstan
Kazakhstan
as independent as possible from the encroaching Russian Empire
Russian Empire
and the Chinese Qing dynasty . He employed a multi-vector foreign policy to protect the tribes from Chinese and Dzungar aggressors. He also sheltered the Dzungar Oirat taishas Amursana
Amursana
and Dawachi
Dawachi
from attacks by the Khoshut -Orait King of Tibet
Tibet
, Lha-bzang Khan
Lha-bzang Khan
, as the Dzungar Khanate fractured following the death of Galdan Tseren in 1745. However, once Amursana
Amursana
and Dawachi
Dawachi
were no longer allies, Ablai Khan took the opportunity to capture herds and territory from the Dzungars.

KENESARY KHAN (1841–1847)

Kenesary was the last Kazakh Khan , and the leader of national liberation movement that resisted the capture of Kazakh lands and segregation policies by the Russian Empire. He was the grandson of Ablai Khan and is largely regarded as the last ruler of the Kazakh Khanate.

By the mid 19th century, the Kazakhs
Kazakhs
fell under the full control of the Russian Empire
Russian Empire
and were banned from electing their own leader or even given representation in the empire's legislative structures. All fiscal/tax collections were also taken away from local Kazakh representatives and given to Russian administrators. Kenesary Khan fought against the Russian imperial forces until his death in 1847.

In 1841, at an all-Kazakh Kurultai , Kenesary was elected as Khan (supreme leader) by all Kazakh representatives. The ceremony of coronation followed all Kazakh traditions.

As a freedom fighter and popular as a leading voice against the increasingly aggressive and forceful policies of the Russian Empire, Kenesary was ruthless in his actions and unpredictable as a military strategist. By 1846, however, his resistance movement had lost momentum as some of his rich associates had defected to the Russian Empire, having been bribed and been promised great riches. Betrayed, Kenesary Khan grew increasingly suspicious of the remaining members of the Resistance, possibly further alienating them. In 1847, the Khan of the Kazakhs
Kazakhs
met his death in Kyrgyz lands during his assault on northern Kyrgyz tribes. He was executed by Ormon Khan, the Kyrgyz khan who was subsequently rewarded by the Russians with a larger estate and an official administrative role. Kenesary Khan's head was cut off and sent to the Russians.

Over the last decade, Kenesary Khan has been increasingly regarded as a hero in Kazakh literature and media. Kenesary Khan can be seen on the shore of the river Esil in the capital of Kazakhstan, Astana

.

SKIRMISHES WITH RUSSIAN EMPIRE AND SLAVE TRADE

By 18th century Russian Empire
Russian Empire
has conquered Kazan , Sibir and Kalmyk Khanates and reached the northwestern and northern borders of Kazakh lands. Russian fortified settlements began to appear along Ural River .

The Kazakh-Russian relationship at the border regions was tense, which often resulted in mutual raids by Russian Cossacks
Cossacks
on Kazakh lands and Kazakhs
Kazakhs
on Russian settlements.

In 1737, Empress of Russia
Russia
Anna Ioannovna issued an order that legalized slave trade in Siberia
Siberia
. According to some artifacts, price of a Kazakh male was 10 rubles , and Kazakh female was 6 rubles .

There were many accounts of Russian Cossack raids that captured Kazakh families, which were then taken to Petropavlovsk and Omsk
Omsk
, where they were sold to wealthy Russian land owners into serfdom .

Likewise, there were also many accounts of Kazakh raids on Russian settlements such as Orenburg
Orenburg
, where captured people were then taken to Khiva slave markets and sold. Among captured sometimes were Bashkirs
Bashkirs
and Volga Germans who were invited by Russian authorities to colonize Siberia. Some smaller settlements such as Caesarfeld were reported be destroyed by raiders.

There were also documented attacks by Kazakh-Kirghiz tribesmen on Russian trade caravans during mid to late 18th century, which was constant irritant to Russian Tsar
Tsar
.

By the end of 18th century, the lands of Kazakh Junior Jüz
Jüz
(or Junior Horde) were incorporated into the Russian Empire, and raids by Kazakhs
Kazakhs
on Russian colonies has gradually declined and stopped. And on May 23rd 1808, Governor Peter Kaptzevich signed an order that freed all slave or serf Kazakhs
Kazakhs
of both genders if they reached the age of 25.

Approximate areas occupied by the three Kazakh Jüzes in the early 20th century. Green represents the Junior Jüz

.

Gradual decline, disintegration and accession of Kazakh territories into the Russian Empire
Russian Empire
began in the mid-18th and ended in the second part of the 19th century. By the mid-18th century, as a result of long-lasting armed conflicts with Dzungars and Oirats
Oirats
, the Kazakh Khanate had started to decline and further disintegrate into three Jüzes , which formerly constituted the Kazakh Khanate
Kazakh Khanate
in a confederate form.

The Russians fabricated documention stating that: Battered by warfare, seeking external military support the Khan of the Junior Jüz , Abul Khair signs a protectorate agreement with the Russian Empire
Russian Empire
. Retaining his title as ruler and all other powers, he pledges allegiance to the Russian Crown. But in the original text there is no word about a protectorate or seeking external power. Abul Khair Khan wrote a letter to the Russian Empire
Russian Empire
asking them not to disturb relative of his nation's bashkorts.

By the mid-19th century some tribes of the Middle Jüz
Jüz
started war with the Russian occupiers. However the process was long and filled with lots of minor and major armed conflicts and resistance.

Russian colonial policies/strategies brought military fortresses, lots of settlements, and externally imposed rules into Kazakh lands. A series of laws were introduced by the Russian Empire, abolishing local indigenous government in the form of Khan rule, instituting segregative settlement policies, etc., resulting in numerous uprisings against colonial rule. Significant resistance movements were led by leaders such as Isatay Taymanuly (1836-1837), Makhambet Utemisuly (1836-1838) and Eset Kotibaruli (1847-1858).

Meanwhile, the Senior Jüz
Jüz
sided with the Emirate of Bukhara
Bukhara
and the Khanate of Kokand from the south, and started opposing the expansion of the Russian Empire.

Full Russian rule over all Kazakh lands was established in the second half of the 19th century, after the southern towns of Aq-Meshit , Shymkent
Shymkent
, Aulie-Ata and others were taken by the Russian Imperial Army.
