The Artuqid Principality or the Artuqids ruled in the regions of Mardin, Hasankeyf, Diyarbakir and Harput between 1102-1409. It is a Turkmen Principality founded by Artuk Bey, the son of Eksuk a member of the Doger tribe of the Oghuzs. Artuk Bey took part in the conquest of Anatolia and contributed to the Turkification and Islamization of Anatolia, as the commander of the Great Seljuk Sultan Alparslan. During the reign of Sultan Meliksah, he went on a Bahrain expedition to subordinate the Karmatis, and Tutus, the brother of Meliksah, gave the administration of Palestine in return for the contributions of Artuk Bey. Artuk Bey ruled in Jerusalem for a short time and passed away in 1091. After the death of Artuk Bey, crusaders and the Fatimids collaborated and pressured Artuk’s sons, who succeeded after him; therefore, they could not stay in this region for a long time. During their historical timeline, Artuqids first underwent the pressure by the Ayyubids and then Mongols. Artuqids, who continued their reign under the Mongols, were ended by the Karakoyunlu State. Many monuments such as mosques, madrasas, palaces and bridges from the Artuqid Principality have managed to survive. The Malabadi Bridge in Diyarbakir, which is the largest arch bridge made of stone, with a foot span of approximately 40.86 meters, is one of them.
