The Turk Shahi (Turkish: Türk Şahiler) were a Turkic dynasty that ruled from Kabul and Kapisa in the 7th to 9th centuries. They replaced the Nezak – the last dynasty of Bactrian rulers with origins among the Xwn (Xionite) and/or Huna peoples (who are sometimes also referred to as "Huns", under the controversial belief that they were linked to Huns that invaded Eastern Europe during a similar period).
