Abu Sa9:d displaced Shahrukh's line to take power in Samarqand in 855/1451, and in Herat in 862/1458. The major tradition of dynastic history descends through the Mat/a' al-safdayn, written by cAbd al-Razzaq Samarqandl, strongly favorable towards Abu Sa'1d, whom cAbd al-Razzaq served for many years. The history begins significantly with the Ilkhanid Sultan Abu Sa'1d, and continues through the reign of the Timurid Abu Sa'1d. It became the basic text for coverage of this period in the later histories by MIrkhwand (836-371 1436-38 to 903/1497-98) and his grandson Khwandamir (889/1484-85 to after 94211535-36).
