Taibuga was the first Khan of the Khanate of Sibir. He came to power as a result of the power vacuum caused by the breakup of the Mongolian Empire.

The facts of his reign are not totally clear, but it appears he was a shamanist.[1] Taibuga is said to have driven the forces of Novgorod from his land.[2] He is also at times spoken of as the ancestor not just of the Khans but the whole ruling elite of Sibir.[3]
