Suleiman Khan

Suleiman Khan (also known as Solayman Khan or Sulaiman Khan) was a Chobanid puppet for the throne of the Ilkhanate during the breakdown of central authority in Persia. He was the great-grandson of the Ilkhan Hülegü's third son Yoshmut.

Suleiman was raised to the throne around May 1339 by the Chobanid Hasan Kucek. He then married Sati Beg, who had previously been Hasan Kucek's puppet Ilkhan. Suleiman was present at the battle on the Jaghatu against the jalayirids under Hasan Buzurg in June 1340; the chobanids emerged victorious. Around 1341 the sarbadars, in an attempt to foster an alliance with the chobanids, accepted Hasan Kucek as their suzerain, and also recognized Suleiman as Ilkhan.

In 1343 Hasan Kucek was murdered and a rivalry broke out for the succession between Sati Beg's son Surgan, Yagi Basti and Malek Asraf. Suleiman appealed to Hasan Buzurg to intervene. When Malek Asraf defeated Surgan, the latter fled to Suleiman and Sati Beg; all three of them then concluded an alliance. When the jalayirids withdrew their support, however, it became clear victory was not possible. They fled to Diyarbakr, where coins representing Suleiman were struck until 1345.
