Dulkadir Eyalet (Ottoman Turkish: ایالت ذو القادریه / دولقادر; Eyālet-i Ẕū l-Qādirīyê / Dūlqādir)[2] or Marash Eyalet (Turkish: Maraş Eyaleti ) was an eyalet of the Ottoman Empire. Its reported area in the 19th century was 77,352 square miles (200,340 km2).[3]

The Dulkadirids were the last of the Anatolian emirates to yield to the Ottomans, managing to remain independent until 1521, and were not fully incorporated into the empire until 1530.[4] The eyalet was established in 1522.[5]
