A khanate or khaganate is a political entity ruled by a khan or khagan. This political entity is typical for people from the Eurasian Steppe and it can be equivalent to tribal chiefdom, principality, kingdom or empire.

Mongol khanates (or khaganates)[edit]

After Genghis Khan established appanages for his family in the Mongol Empire during his rule (1206-1227),[1] his sons, daughters,[2] and grandsons inherited separate sections of the empire.

Furthermore, the proto-Mongols also established some khanates (or khaganates) such as the Rouran Khaganate.
