The Ahmadilis (Modern Turkish: Aksungurlar, Persian: احمدیلی), also known as the Atabegs of Maragheh (Atābakān-e Marāghe, Persian: اتابکان مراغه), were a local dynasty who ruled from the early 12th century until 1208–09 in Maragheh itself and in Rūʾīn Dez for some years after the Mongol conquest. They ruled approximately from 1122 to 1220.
Notices in the chronicles of this localised line of Atabegs are only sporadic, and numismatic evidences have not thus far been found, so there is a difficultly in reconstructing their chronology and genealogy. Bosworth says that they were a dynasty of Turkish origin that started with Aq Sunqur Ahmadili who was presumably a freedman of the Kurdish commander of the Seljuq Empire, Ahmadil ibn Ibrahim. A female member of the family, Sulafa Khatun, was ruling Maragheh until these places were sacked by the Mongols in 1221.
