The Atabegs of Yazd (Persian: اتابکان یزد, Atābakān-e Yazd) were a local dynasty, which ruled the city of Yazd from about 1141 to 1319. They succeeded the Kakuyids to whom they were linked by marriage.
The names of the first members of the dynasty indicate that they were seemingly ethnically Persian, but like the Hazaraspids they had accepted the Turkish title of Atabeg. Most of the Atabegs of Yazd were tributaries to the Saljuqs and the Mongol Il-Khans until they were finally overthrown by the Muzaffarids.
