Ilkhanate

The Mongol state created by Hulegu's conquests in Persia, Iraq and Syria in the 1250s, and including as satellites Armenia and Anatolia. Until 1295, when they adopted Islam, its rulers (ilkhans) enjoyed close relations with Christian Europe. Although the Ilkhanate lasted only until 1355, it created in Persia for the first time in centuries a single territorial unit.
