Shaikh Mahmoud

Shaikh Mahmoud (d. around 1327) was a member of the Chupanid family who lived in the Ilkhanate. He was the fourth son of Chupan.

During his lifetime he was made governor of Armenia and Georgia.[1] Upon the fall of his father in 1327 by the Ilkhan Abu Sa'id, he was brought to Tabriz and executed.[1]

Shaikh Mahmud had four sons; of these, Pir Hosayn would play an influential role in the strife amongst the Chupanids in the 1340s.[1]
