In the late 7th and 8th centuries it was ruled by a local magnate, called in Persian sources the Chaghān-khudā. These rulers were most likely of Iranian stock. Eventually the principality fell into the hands of the Muhtajids, who were vassals of the Samanids in the 10th century and of the Ghaznavids in the early 11th. When the Muhtajids disappeared, the history of the principality came to an end.
