After Shahriyar's accession of the Bavand throne in 1300, the Ilkhanid amir Mo'men marched towards Amol and greatly weakened the strength of Shahriyar's kingdom. Shahriyar died in 1310, leaving his kingdom in a weakened condition, which quickly fell into war of succession between his brothers Kay Khusraw ibn Yazdagird, and Shams al-Muluk Muhammad. Kay Khusraw, with Ilkhanid support, managed to emerge victorious during the civil war, and become the new king of the Bavand dynasty.
