Nukederes are a nomadic community that lives in the geography of Afghanistan and have prefered the eastern border of the Ilhanlı State as a fi eld of activity since the day that they came to the stage of history. In the middle of the 13th century, the name of the Nukedere, made themselves known for their looting with a division soldier, were identifi ed with blood and tears in almost all cities from Kirman to Ghazna. Although there have been studies about community that has become a horrifying dream of the local people in the areas where they have lived, the discussions about their origin have been going on for a long time. In this study we will discusse the claims that origin of Nukedere come from Chagatay Prince Nukedere Ogul's and Ilkhanid Sultan Ahmed Tekudar's remainders of armies and the activities of Nukeder Noyan after coming to Afghanistan. The political events of Nukedere communities, mentioned with the name of Nekuder Noyan, during Ilhanlı history will be examined. Furthermore, we will examine the Nukederes' experiences in the area around Herat, where they partially became sedentary, the tasks that they undertake among the Kert forces, the eff ects on the history of this dynasty. All of these issues will be examined in the light of the sources written on Ilkhanid geography, both general and urban, regional history.
