Anatolian Seljuks (also called Seljuks of Rum and Seljuks of Turkey) was a former dynasty in Turkey. Süleyman the founder of the dynasty was actually a member of the Seljuk dynasty. His father was Tuğrul Bey's cousin . In 1077, after capturing Nicaea ( modern İznik) Süleyman founded his state as a vassal of the main Seljuk Empire. However soon Seljuks of Anatolia became independent of the main empire and their state survived till the beginning of the 14th century. [1][2]
