Genghis Khan had divided his kingdom up amongst his sons. Chaghatay took over the area around Samarkand and it was to one of his viziers that Timur, whom we also know as Tamberlane, was born. He started his career as a mercenary but eventually captured Samarkand in 1364. In 1366 he married a grand-daughter of Chaghatay and was shortly after elected regent, a position he maintained all his life. By 1381 he had sufficiently consolidated his position in Samarkand to undertake a series of conquests to the West, taking Herat first and then Sistan in 1384. The same year he took Rayy (just south of Tehran), and the Il-Khanid capital of Sultaniyeh, marking the effective end of that dynasty. He remained in Iran until 1388 and named Mohammad Soltan, son of Jahangir, governor of Tabriz.
