Sultan Mohammed Az-Beg, better known as Uzbeg or Ozbeg (1282-1341, reign 1313-1341), was the longest-reigning khan of the Golden Horde, under whose rule the state reached its zenith. He was succeeded by his son Jani Beg.He was the son of Toghrilcha and grandson of Mengu-Timur, who had been khan of the Golden Horde from 1267-1280. According to Rashid-al-Din Hamadani (1247-1318), Genghis Khan's eldest son, Jochi, had 14 sons. When he died, they inherited their father's dominions as fiefs under the rule of their brothers, Batu Khan, as supreme and Orda Khan as elder. Orda with some of his younger brothers constituted the eastern wing of the Jochid Ulus (Golden Horde) while Batu and others ruled the western part of it. Those Hordes are known as "White", "Blue" and "Gray" (Shaybanids) Horde. Two main division are also known as Batu's Ulus (district) and Orda's Ulus.
