 Khanate of Khiva
During the 16th century the khanate included, besides Khwarazm, the oases in the northern rim of Khorasan and the nomadic Turkmen tribes in the Kara Kum desert as well.
Already before the Uzbek conquest, Khwarazm had lost its former cultural importance as a result of the devastations caused by the incursions of Timur in the 1380s.
The khanate was weakened economically and politically; a great part of the lands irrigated in the first half of century was devastated and abandoned, and khanate lost its control of the Turkmens in the south.

Whether the Arsiyah were a single tribe or composed of Muslims from a number of different tribes is unclear.
Also unclear is their origin; many historians regard them as deriving from Khwarazm, but some scholars point to the fact that "As" is the Turkic term for Alans amd believe that the Arsiyah were Alanic in origin.
According to Muslim sources, the Arsiyah formed the core of the Khazar army and were extremely influential in Khazar politics, but these assertions may be designed to exaggerate the importance of the Muslim community in Khazaria.

From the fourth to nineteenth centuries, control has been held by Alexander the Great, the Arabs, the Seljuk Turks of Khwarazm, Chingiss Khan, Tamarlane, the Timurids, and the Uzbeks.
Their first homeland, during the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, was in an area of Khwarazm (also called Khiva), north of today's Uzbekistan.
They were originally a warlike, outlaw people; their name, Uzbek, became synonymous with "fear and villainy." Inconclusive efforts have been made to link them to Chingiss Khan, whose form of leadership their chiefs emanated, and at the time of the Mongol Invasion, they were considered Moguls.
