The Khorshidi dynasty (Ḵoršīdī, Kurdish: Xurşîdiyan, 1184? - 1597[1]) was a dynasty that ruled Little Lorestan[2] (Persian: لر کوچک‎, Lor-e kūchek, Lori: Lor-e Kūček, Kurdish: Lûrê Piçûk ) between 1155[citation needed] - 1597[1] from Khorramabad.[1] The dynasty was stemmed from the Jangardi tribe (Jangrūʾī or Jangardī).[1]

The rulers of Khorshidi dynasty were called atabegs. Later they were appointed as a Wali by Safavid dynasty and continued to rule the area until the beginning of the 17th century.[citation needed]
