Shaybanid Horde
  • The Uzbek are an offshoot of the Mongol Golden Horde that conquered Russia in the thirteenth century. Cingis Qan (Ghengis Khan) died in 1227 and his empire was divided up in the great Quraltai of 1229. Jochi the eldest son was given the land furthest from the hearth, but since he had died his heirs led by Berke took from the Caucasus north into Russia and they were known as the Golden Horde. The Golden Horde or Kipchaks were led by Batu and Berke. Their younger brother Shayban, who gained acclaim in the Mongolian invasion of Hungary" split off and established the Shaybanid Horde.

  • A later Shaybanid Khan named Uzbek converted to Islam and the horde became known as the Uzbeks. In the later part of the 15th century the Shaybanid Horde moved into Transoxiana (Turan) and by 1505 the Uzbeks pushed the Chagati Turks or Timurids out and took the land they still inhabit today.

  • The subjagated peoples of that area primarily Sart and Turkic have been absorbed into the Uzbek. Linguisticly Uzbek is a Turkic language. Uzbeks weave both pile and flatweave. Much of Uzbek production I feel is incorrectly labeled as Turkmen.
