Historical background


Artukids Mardin - NEJM ED-DIN ALPI

(1152-1176 / 547-572 AH)

As the Seljuks they were vassals the Artukids (or Urtukides) are a tribe of Uighurs, Turkish people came from Turkestan. They are named after the eponymous founder of the dynasty and settled in Diyarbakir on the Tigris, and Mardin, strategic points on the Silk Road. The dynasty began to lose its importance with the arrival of Saladin (1185) and were eventually absorbed into the Turkmen confederation of "black sheep" (the name of their banner) in 1408. The first ruler of Mardin was Artukids Nejm ed-Din Ghazi it (1108-1122).
