SelÃ$uksport

The SelÃ$uks were a Sunni Muslim dynasty that ruled parts of the Levant and Anatolia during the 11th to 14th centuries. The name SelÃ$uk comes from a diminutive of the Arabic word self, meaning «man of the house.»

The SelÃ$uks established an empire that included Anatolia, Persia, Mesopotamia, and parts of North Africa and Central Asia. They were known for their military prowess and their tolerance of other cultures and religions.

The SelÃ$uks were overthrown by the Mongols in the 13th century, but their legacy lasted long after their fall. The SelÃ$ukid Sultanate of Rum, which was established after the SelÃ$uk Empire, continued to rule parts of Anatolia until the 20th century.
