  Chagatai Khanate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Chagatai, the second son received Kashgaria, with his capital at Almalyq (Kulja) in the modern Sinkiang area of western China, and Transoxania between the Amu Darya and Syr Darya rivers in modern Uzbekistan.
The Chagatai Khanate was turbulent and unsafe because of the efforts of Kaidu and his vassal Duwa to integrate the original ulus (dynasties) of Ögedei and Chagatai.
The Chagatai Khanate flourished again during the 15th century, when it took Tashkent (1484), although by then its Mongol component had been diluted and it was a mainly Turkic empire with Mongol overlords, for the name of Genghis Khan still drummed legitimacy.

It is generally agreed that the Chagatai Khanate was the weakest of all Mongol-controlled empires because it was small, and thus it was easily absorbed into the spheres of influence of more powerful neighbouring Khanates.
It was not until the ascension of Tarmashirin to the throne in 1326, however, that the Chagatai Khanate became an officially Muslim state.
Timur's successors were in turn ousted from the Chagatai Khanate by the Sheibanids, descendants of a brother of Batu, the original Khan of the Golden Horde.

 The Kazakhs
The territory of the Kazakh khanate continued to expand, so that by the middle of the sixteenth century it included most of the environs of Lake Balkhash and the lands immediately above and below the Syr Darya River, north to the Turgai River, and west to the lands just northwest of the Aral Sea.
The Kazakh khanate was a political confederation composed primarily of Turkish-speaking nomadic tribes of Uzbek-Turkic stock (mostly Nogai) that had migrated to the area from Dashti-Qipchak (the Kipchak steppe), and Naiman, Argyn, and Chagatai tribesmen from the Uzbek khanate, as well as some indigenous population.
The beginning of the fourteenth century also saw the breakup of the Chagatai khanate and the establishment of rival branches of the family in Mawarannahr and newly formed Mughulistan (which included the Ili region, Semirech'e, and Eastern Turkestan).

In addition to the Khanates and other descendants, the Mughal royal family of India are also descended from Genghis Khan (Babur's mother was a descendant).
Eventually the separate khanates drifted away from each other, becoming the Ilkhanate Dynasty based in Persia, the Chagatai Khanate in Central Asia, the Yuan Dynasty in China, and what would become the Golden Horde in present-day Russia.
The four descendant empires were the Mongol-founded Yuan Dynasty in China, the Chagatai Khanate, the Golden Horde that controlled Central Asia and Russia, and the Ilkhans who ruled Persia from 1256 to 1353.

 The Islamic World to 1600: The Mongol Invasions (The Il-Khanate)
Although the Chagatai Khanate and the Golden Horde both established themselves in regions already inhabited by Muslims, their invasions of Central Asia and Russia, respectively, did not have the catastrophic effect on the native Islamic faith that the Mongol invasion of Persia and Iraq had.

The Chagatai Khanate and the Golden Horde were already firmly established empires in the Islamic world, and the Great Khan disliked the fact that his new Muslim subjects worshipped a man - the caliph - that they deemed to be in a higher position than the Great Khan.

Timur's military career begins with him at the head of the Barlas tribe in Transoxiana, which was nominally under the control of the western Chagatai Khanate.
