  Hulagu Khan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hulagu, the child of Tolui and Sorghaghtani Beki, a Christian woman, was dispatched by his brother Mongke (who was Great Khan from 1251-1258), in 1255 to accomplish the destruction of the remaining Muslim states in southwestern Asia.
Hulagu easily destroyed the Lurs, and his reputation so frightened the Assassins that they surrendered their impregnable fortress of Alamut to him without a fight.
Hulagu returned to his lands by 1262, but instead of being able to avenge his defeats, was drawn into civil war with Batu Khan's brother Berke, suffering severe defeat in an attempted invasion north of the Caucasus in 1263.
