Güyük (or Kuyuk; Cyrillic:Гүюг хаан), born Güyük() (Temple name: ) (c. 1206–1248) was the third Great Khan of the Mongol Empire. He was the eldest son of Ögedei Khan, grandson of Genghis Khan, and reigned from 1246 to 1248.

Early life

Güyük received military training and served as an officer under Genghis and Ögedei. He married Oghul Qaimish of the Merkit clan. In 1233, Guyuk, along with his maternal cousin Alchidai and the Mongol general Tangghud, conquered the short-lived Dongxia Kingdom of Puxian Wannu, who was a rebellious Jin official, in a few months. After the death of Tolui, Ogedei proposed that Sorghaghtani, the widow of Tolui, marry his son Guyuk. Sorghaghtani declined, saying that her prime responsibility was to her own sons.He participated in the invasion of Russia and Central Europe in 1236-1241 with other Mongol princes, including his cousin Batu and half-brother Khadan. Guyuk led his corps in the siege of Ryazan and the lengthy siege of the Ossetian capital Maghas. During the course of the conquest, Güyük quarreled violently with Batu at the victory banquet and screamed at Batu "Batu is just an old woman with a quiver".J.
