The Ahmadilis[4] (Turkish: Aksungurlar, Persian: احمدیلی‎), also called by the title Atabegs of Maragha (ATĀBAKĀN-E MARĀḠA) (Persian: اتابکان مراغه‎), were a dynasty of Turkish[5] 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.[4]

Notices in the chronicles of this localised line of Atabegs are only sporadic, and numismatic evidences have not thus far been found.[4] So there is a difficultly in reconstructing their chronology and genealogy.[4] 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.
