Full name
House Borjigin
Dynasty Northern Yuan

Manduul Khan (Manduuluu, Manduyul or Manduyulun) (1438–1478), was the Mongol Khan of the Northern Yuan dynasty based in Mongolia, and he was the younger brother of Taisun Khan (Toghtoa Bukha or Toγtoγa Buqa), but the two had different mothers.

After the death of Molon Khan, the position remain vacant for nearly a decade as warring Mongol clans fought each other for dominance, and it was not until finally in 1475, when Manduul Khan was finally crowned as the new khan. Manduul is the earliest Mongol chief known to have actually headed the Chakhar myriarchy.[1]

During his short rule, Manduul Khan successfully strengthened the power of khan and reduced the power of nobles, and paved the way for his great-grandnephew Dayan Khan (Batu Möngke) who succeeded him (Manduuluu khan had no direct male heirs).
