Kazan Khanate Khanate of the Crimean Tatars
First posted on September 24th 2010






The Kipchak Tatar Khanate, established in 1240, disintegrated in the course of the 15th century. The Khanate of Astrakhan seceded in 1466, other successor states include the Khanates of Kazan, of the Crimean Tatars and of Sibir. The state religion of the Khanate of Astrakhan was Islam. In 1552 Kazan was conquered and annexed by the Grand Duchy of Muscovy (or the Russian Empire; a matter of terminology). Shortly after, a pro-Muscovite party took power in Astrakhan. The Khanate was annexed by Muscovy/the Russian Empire in 1556.
In the early 17th century, Buddhist Kalmyks settled in the region, replacing the Astrakhan Tatars as the dominant population element around Astrakhan.

The modern Republic of Kalmykia comprises of territory which once formed part of the Astrakhan Khanate.
