HAZAÚRASPIDS, a local dynasty of Kurdish origin which ruled in the Zagros mountains region of southwestern Persia, essentially in Loresta@n and the adjacent parts of Fa@rs, and which flourished in the later Saljuq, Ilkhanid, Mozaffarid, and Timurid periods.
It is often described as an "Atabeg" dynasty, although the line was not ethnically Turkish, as the true Atabeg dynasties were, nor was any of its members actually the Atabeg or tutor (see ATAÚBAK) to any young prince of the period.
The sparseness of the sources means that the origins of the dynasty and the chronology of its members are both extremely obscure; but the line managed to survive amongst the much mightier powers of the time through skillful diplomacy, submission to superior force, and the timely payment of tribute to stronger neighbors.

It is dealing with the crisis which, as from the end of 1515 opposed two pretenders to the succession of atabeg Mzé-Châbûk, prince of Samtzkhé-Saatabago (the southernmost Georgian State), tributary of the Ottoman Porte.
It is probable, however, that the Safavid suzerainty claimed too heavy a tribute from the principality, so that Kvarkvaré approached the Ottomans early in 1521, offering to place himself under their protection and to turn against Shâh Isma'il.
However, Selim had died the year before and his son and successor Süleymân, unlike his father, decided to withdraw progressively from the oriental front to concentrate his military efforts in the Balkans, so that the advances of Kvarkvaré remained without a reply.
