in 1241.[citation needed] Territorial grants by the Golden Horde[edit] Because he had not reached his majority when his father died in 1227, he did not receive any lands at that time. Abulghazi says that after this campaign, Batu gave Shiban
lands east of the Ural Mountains

was also given 15,000 families as a gift from his brother Orda Khan, as well as the four Uruks of the Kuchis, the Naimans, the Karluks, and the Buiruks, while he assigned him as a camping ground all the country lying between that of his brother Orda Ichin and his own.[2] Thus Shiban's lands were somewhat between Batu's and Orda's and between the Ural mountains and the Caspian Sea. Descendants[edit] Although, it is unknown how long he lived, his descendants continued to rule long after the breakup of the Ulus of Jochi

(Golden Horde). It is merely said that he left twelve sons, namely, Bainal or Yasal, Behadur, Kadak, Balagha, Cherik or Jerik, Mergen or Surkhan, Kurtugha or Kultuka, Ayachi or Abaji, Sailghan or Sasiltan, Beyanjar or Bayakachar, Majar, and Kunchi or Kuwinji.[3][4] Shiban's descendants are known as the Shaybanids; his male line continues down to the present time.[citation needed] One of Shiban's sons, Balagha Bey (Prince Balagha) assisted Hulagu Khan in taking Baghdad
in 1258.[5] However, he died in unknown circumstances.[citation needed] According to William of Rubruck, he killed his cousin Güyük Khan
