The Anatolian beylik of Teke (1321-1423), with its capital at Antalya, was one of the frontier principalities established by Oghuz Turkish clans after the decline of the Seljuk Sultanate of Rûm.


The Teke dynasty started with a split of territories between two brothers of the neighboring Beylik of Hamidid dynasty. Yunus Bey became the first ruler of the beylik. The inhabitants spoke Anatolian Turkish[1]


The Turkish province of Antalya was named the sub-province (sanjak) of Teke until the early years of the Republic of Turkey. The peninsula west of Antalya is called Teke Peninsula.
