BRIEF HISTORY:Thegreat Khan Kubilai (1260-1294), absorbed in the administration ofChina, had lost interest in the western provinces and was happy thatIran should be governed by his brother Halagu (1256-1265), on whom hebestowed the title of Il-Khan(tribal khan, local khan or subordinatekhan), which all the descendants of Halagu were to assume. Halagu thusfounded inIranthe Il-Khanid dynasty (1265- 1335). He died in February 8, 1265 and wassucceeded by his seven successors one after another, namely Abaqa(1265-1282), Takudar (1282-1284), Arghun (1284-1291), Gaykhatu(1291-1295), Ghazan (1295-1304), Uljaytu (1304-1316) and Abu Sa'id(1317-1334). With the death of Abu Sa'id the Ilkhanid dynasty inIran virtually came to an end. One key aspect of the Mongol conquest however was that for the first time,Iranand other large areas of the Muslim world founded themselves governedfrom 1221 to 1295.
