The Ahmadilis (Turkish: Aksungurlar, Persian: احمدیلی), also called by the title Atabegs of Maragha (ATĀBAKĀN-E MARĀḠA) (Persian: اتابکان مراغه), were a dynasty of Turkish origin who ruled from the early 6th/12th century until 605/1208–09 in Maragha itself and in Rūʾīn Dez for some years after the Mongol conquest. They ruled approximately from 1122 to 1220 AD.
Notices in the chronicles of this localised line of Atabegs are only sporadic, and numismatic evidences have not thus far been found. So there is a difficultly in reconstructing their chronology and genealogy. The dynasty starts from Aq Sunqur Ahmadili, who was presumably a freedman of the Turkish commander of the Seljuqs, Ahmadil b. Ibrahim. A female member of the family, Sulafa Khatun, was ruling Maragha until these places were sacked by the Mongols in 1221.
