Abstract

Hulegu Khan's arrival in Iran circa 1254 has often been depicted in a negative light. This article seeks to show how Hulegu Khan's advent was welcomed by the Iranian elite who saw the Ilkhanate as an escape from Arab domination and their hitherto pariah, peripheral status in relation to the Chinggisid Empire. Inclusion in the Chinggisid Empire allowed Iran access to global markets and facilitated their influence with other parts of the empire
