Topic: Ariq Boke


  
  Ariq Boke Information
Ariq Boke or Arigh Bukha (died 1266), the youngest son of Tolui, was a grandson of Genghis Khan and a claimant to the Mongol Empire.
As Ariq Boke was commander of the Mongol homelands, and as Kublai Khan was campaigning against Song China at the time of Möngke's death, he decided to attempt to make himself Khan.
Still, Ariq Boke had his supporters and was elected as a rival to Kublai at Karakorum.

Still, Ariq Boke had his supporters and was elected as a rival khan to Kublai at Karakorum.
After winning the war against Ariq Boke, Kublai Khan began his reign over his khanate with great aspirations and self-confidence — in 1266 he ordered the construction of a capital near the modern city of Beijing.
The city was originally called Zhongdu ("Central Capital") by the Chinese during the Jin Dynasty, and in 1272 it came to be known as Dadu or Tatu ("Great Capital") in Chinese, Daidu to the Mongols, and Khanbalikh ("City of the Khans") to the Turks.

In 1260 he was appointed as head of the ulus of the Chagatai Khanate by the Great Khan claimant Ariq Boke, in opposition to the child khan Mubarak Shah and his mother Orghina.
In 1262 he rebelled against Ariq Boke, and the conflict saw a series of violent clashes over the next two years.
The revolt severely weakened Ariq Boke's power and contributed to his eventual loss to Kublai Khan.

Kaidu controlled eastern Turkestan (modern Xinjiang Uighur) and, for a time, much of Mongolia proper, including Karakorum, the former capital of the Mongol Empire.
Since about 1263, when Kublai Khan was liquidating the rebellion of his own brother Ariq Boke, Kaidu would be waging almost continuous warfare for more than 30 years against Kublai and his successors, without ever managing to overthrow their might.
By 1269 he had himself recognized by some Mongol tribes and chieftains as their rightful Khan, but eventually fell in 1301, when defeated near Karakorum and killed during a desperate flight.

Deposed in China, Togon Temur declared himself ruler of the Northern Yuan in Mongolia, but he found little success even in the traditional homeland of the Mongols.
The descendents of Ariq Boke, Qubilai's brother and rival for the throne, dominated Mongolia at this time, although they were still nominal subjects of the Yuan dynasty.
In addition, Mongols in the Oirats tribes in Western Mongolia were ruled by chieftains not descended from Genghis Khan, and they also did not wish to see a central power established in Mongolia.

Shortly later, his brother, Ariq Boke, was also elected Khakhan at a rivaling Khuriltai.
The civil war lasted until 1264, when Kubilai was victorious over Ariq Boke, becoming the undisputed Khakhan.
The death of Mongke Khan and the subsequent civil war between Kublai and Ariq Boke caused a stall in campaigning for four years.
