Bedr Khan Bey(Redirected from Bedr Khan Beg)
An ethnic Kurd, he was born in Cizre (now in Turkey). He began to lose his power due to the centralist policies of the Ottoman Empire, which culminated in the Tanzimat Edict of 1839 and its application the following year.
After allying himself with Nurallah of Hakkari and Ismael Pasha of Amadiya, he declared war on the indigenous Assyrian populous, and was a driver of the genocide that ensued. Pressure from the European powers led the Ottomans into invading his territories and deporting him to Crete in 1850.
