Qun Quran

Qun-Quran or Qun-Qiran (r.1251 – c.1280) was the khan of Orda's Ulus.

According to Jami al-Tawarikh ("Compendium of Chronicles") by Rashid-al-Din Hamadani, Qun-Quran was the fourth son of Orda, the eldest son of Jochi.

In 1256 a contingent of the golden horde under Qun Quran's eldest brother Kuli dispatched in Persia to assist Hulegu. Sometime after the battle of Baghdad (1258), Kuli died in uncertain circumstances which constrained the Jochids' relationship with the Ilkhanate. During his rule, some descendants of Orda supported the election of Arik Boke and joined his resistance against Khubilai in the early 1260's.

When he died, he left no male heir. Therefore, his nephew Köchü succeeded him.
