Zerfall und Bestehen. Die Ǧaun-i qurban im 14. Jahrhundert


Paul, J (2011). Zerfall und Bestehen. Die Ǧaun-i qurban im 14. Jahrhundert. Asiatische Studien / Études Asiatiques, 65(3):695-733.

Abstract

The Ǧaun-i qurban played an important role in 14th-century Khurāsān. They originated as a “lesser thousand” in the Chinggisid military system and therefore were not tribally organised. Under the leadership of the descendants of Arġun Aqa, they formed a regional state which lasted for roughly 90 years until its final destruction by Timur in 1388–9. The article uses their story as a case study in the complex interplay between the local, regional and imperial levels of power.
