History of Iran timeline,The Timurids the Period of Shahrukh

Although Timur had chosen Pir Muhammad ibn Jahangir as his successor, after his death in 807/1407 Khalil Sultan, another of his grandsons and the son of Miran Shah, occupied Samarqand, the capital city, with the backing of the princes of the realm, declared himself king. At this time Shahrukh, the fourth son of Timur, has consolidated his position in Khorasan, the center of his rule, and added Gorgan and Mazandaran to his domain. As a result of differences among the princes, Khalil Sultan was deposed in 812/1499, Shahurkh conquered Transoxania as well. Thus he ruled for nearly a half century (from 807/1404 to 850/1447) as Timur's successor in Iran and Transoxania. In the southeast his territory reached to the Indus River and the Soleyman Mountains and in the northeast to the farther side of the Jaxartes River, In the West Azarbaijan, Arran and Mesopotamia were ruled by Jahan - Shah Qara - Qoyunlu under Shahrukh's aegis. The Successors of Shahrukh and the Aq - Qoynlus After the death of Shahrukh, differences arose among the various Timurid princes. As a result Jahan - Shah Qara - Qoyunlu achieved independence in Azarbaijan and Arran. In 857/1453 he conquered Eraq - e - Ajam, Fars and Kerman and extended his territory as far as the Oman sea. In 861/1458 he occupied Harat, the Timurid capital. Afterwards he concluded a treaty according to which he entrusted the rule of Khorasan, Gorgan and trusted the rule of Khorasan, Gorgan and Kerman to Sultan Abu Said, the claimant to the Timurid throne, and went to Tabriz. At this time his territory included all of Azarbaijan, Arran, Eraq - e - Ajam, Iraq, Fars, Kerman and Armenia. But at the same time Uzun Hasan Aq - Qoyunlu, known as Uzun Hasan, had gained a degree of power, and in a war that occurred between him and Jahan - Shah the latter was killed. Thus Uzun Hasan took possession of Jahan - Shah's territories and became the immediate neighbor of the Timuird domian. Sultan Abu Said, who governed all of Transoxania as well as the provinces of Kabol, Zabol, Khorasan and Mazandaran, invaded Iraq and Azarbaijan in 872/1468 to war against Uzun Hasan. However in the following year he was killed in battle. His successor, Sultan Husayn Mirza, found no opportunity to win back his inherited territories from Uzun Hasan because of the opposition of the Timurid princes to his rule. After Sultan Husayn's death in 911/1506 the Timurid dynasty came to an end. Uzun Hasan extended his domain west to the borders of the Ottoman Empire, Qaraman (ancient Cilicia) and the territory of the Mamluk dynasty and north to Georgia, and at the same time he made the king of Shirvan his tributary. After Uzun Hasan's death in 882/1478 the Aq - Qoyunlu dynasty gradually weakened. It was finally overthrown by Shah Ismail the Safavid.
