    House of Timur
    تیموریان


    The House of Timur (Persian: تیموریان, Gūrkāniyān; Urdu: تیموری شاہی سلسلہ), is the current reigning imperial house of the Mughal empire. The house of Timur has ruled Hindustan since 1526 after the defeat of the Delhi Sultanate. The Timur dynasty is a predominantly Sunni Muslim dynasty or clan of Turco-Mongol lineage descended from the warlord Timur (also known as Tamerlane). The word "Gurkani" derived from "gurkan", a Persianized form of the Mongolian word "kuragan" meaning "son-in-law", as the Timurids were in-laws of the line of Genghis Khan, founder of the Mongol Empire. Members of the Timurid dynasty are strongly influenced by the Persian culture and established two significant empires in history, including the former Timurid Empire (1370–1507) based in Persia and Central Asia. The Timur dynasty has been dubbed an "umbrella dynasty" for offering safeguard to several dynasties throughout history, most prominently the LinkFatimids through the lineage of LinkAga Khan, the LinkManghuds former rulers of the LinkEmirate of Bukhura and even the LinkShaybanids.

    The prestigious house of Timur currently holds several properties within the Mughal empire and worldwide with most properties being private in nature.

    Origins

    The origin of the Timurid dynasty goes back to the Mongol tribe known as LinkBarlas, who were remnants of the original Mongol army of LinkGenghis Khan, founder of the LinkMongol Empire. After the Mongol conquest of Central Asia, the Barlas settled in what is today southern Kazakhstan, from Shymkent to Taraz and Almaty, which then came to be known for a time as LinkMoghulistan – "Land of Mongols" in Persian and intermingled to a considerable degree with the local Turkic and Turkic-speaking population, so that at the time of Timur's reign the Barlas had become thoroughly Turkicized in terms of language and habits.

    Additionally, by adopting LinkIslam, the Central Asian Turks and Mongols adopted the Persian literary and high culture which had dominated Central Asia since the early days of Islamic influence. Persian literature was instrumental in the assimilation of the Timurid elite to the Perso-Islamic courtly culture.
