Details

The Artuqid dynasty was a Turkmen dynasty that ruled in Eastern Anatolia, Northern Mesopotamia in the eleventh and twelfth centuries. The Artuqid dynasty took its name from its founder, Zaheer-ul-Daulah Artuk Bey, who was of the D?ger branch of the Oghuz and ruled one of the Turkmen atabeyliks of the Seljuk Empire. The Artuqid rulers viewed the state as the common property of the dynasty members.
