(p.269) 10 Unbelieving Monarchs and their Servants
The Mongols and the Islamic World

Peter Jackson

Yale University Press

This chapter examines the sometimes precarious relationship of the Mongols' Muslim servitors with infidel khans, their Muslim ministers and officials, especially those who were in attendance at court and in the ordo, and their non-Muslim colleagues. It also discusses the shifting balance of power between Mongol grandees and Tājīks who served as civilian officials, as well as the extent to which these very disparate ruling cadres were in the process of integration. After providing an overview of the Ilkhans (1258–1297) and their kinsfolk, the chapter looks at Muslim ministers at the centre and in the provinces. It also considers the Ilkhans, their Muslim ministers and their historians; civil and military functions, focusing on the Mongol viceroy and Tājīk wazir; and the difficulties faced by the highest-ranking Muslims under the pagan Ilkhans.

Keywords:   infidel khans, Mongols, Muslim ministers, civilian officials, Ilkhans, viceroy, Tājīks, wazir, Muslims
