The Baatuds ᠪᠠᠠᠲᠦᠳ, ᠪᠠᠭᠠᠲᠦᠳ (baatud, baɣatud) are a sub-ethnic group of the Oyrads. They were a large tribe of the Oyrads but the Baatuds were divided into other Oyrad tribes in the 16th century. Many Baatud people were killed by the Manchu army during the fall of the Zuunghar Khanate (1755-1758). Today very few Baatuds live among the Oyrads.
