- Mongol Seljuk Turks -
The Seljuk Turkish
history spanned the period from 1060 to around 1307. The Seljuks
were a tribe of Tartars from Central Asia who established a powerful
empire in Persia in the 11th century. They captured Baghdad in 1055.
The Caliph of Baghdad was so impressed with their strength and skill
that he made their leader, Tugrul Bey his deputy and conferred on
him the title of “King of East and West”. The Seljuks however
assumed they were the rightful owners of all land conquered during
the time of Prophet Mohammed and were keen to extend their kingdom.
So a contingent of around 5000 moved into eastern Anatolia and left
their mark there for some time.
