Uzbek khanate


Uzbek khanate

▪ historical state, Central Asia
      any of the three states that ruled Transoxania, in present-day Uzbekistan, before it came under Russian rule in the 19th century. The khanates of Bukhara and Khiva (Khwārezm) were established by two branches of the Shaybānid dynasty, which won control of Transoxania from the Timurids in the late 15th and early 16th centuries. The Shaybānids were replaced at Bukhara successively by the Astrakhanids and the Mangits. A third state, the khanate of Kokand, emerged in the mid-18th century. The whole area came under Russian control in the 1860s and '70s, but the khans remained as figurehead rulers until after the Russian Revolution of 1917.
