History maps

This section holds a short summary of the history of the area of present-day Kazakhstan, illustrated with maps, including historical maps of former countries and empires that included present-day Kazakhstan.

Scythia-Parthia 100 BC.png Map of Scythia 100 BC
Gokturkut.png In present-day Kazakhstan is part of the Turk Khanate since the sixth century. This map shows the Western (purple) and Eastern (blue) Göktürk Khaganates at their height, ca. 600 CE. Lighter areas show direct rule; darker areas show spheres of influence. In the 10th century the state of the Ogusians is formed in the tenth century.
Genghis khan empire at his death.png The area is conquered by the Mongols in the thirteenth century. This map shows the Empire of Genghis Khan at his death in 1227l
Mongol Empire map.gif Map showing changes in borders of the Mongol Empire from founding by Genghis Khan in 1206, Genghis Khan's death in 1227 to the rule of Kublai Khan (1260–1294). (Uses modern day borders)
   Mongol Empire

By 1294 the empire had split into:

   Empire of the Great Khan (Yuan Dynasty)
Following this conquest administrative districts are established, which eventually become the territories of the Kazakh Khanate. The Kazakhs emerge from a mixture of tribes living in the region in about the 15th century and by the middle of the 16th century had developed a common language, culture and economy. In the early 1600s, the Kazakh Khanate separates into the Senior, Middle and Junior Hordes, confederations based on extended family networks. Between 1652 and 1680 the khanate is under Dzungarian suzerainty. After the death of Khan Kaip I in 1718, several khans are elected in different parts of the Kazakh Khanate. This means the final disunification of the khanate.
