The Salarid state

The Salarid state (941-983) was founded by Marzuban ibn Muhammad in 941. During his reign the boundaries of the Salarids coincided with the boundaries of the most developed period of the Sajids. Having taken control over almost entire Azerbaijan, Marzuban ibn Muhammad confirmed his domination over Armenia as well and forced the Shirvanshahs, who previously paid taxes to the Sajids, to pay tribute to him. Thus, the borders of the territories subject to the Salarids reached Derbent in the north. The Ravvadid dynasty put an end to the Salarid state in 981. Its capital was Ardebil.
