Malik Shāh II (d. 1105)

Sultan of the Great Saljûq Empire (1105).

A son of Sultan Barkyârûq (d. 1105), the young Malik Shāh II was nominated as successor at the age of four, after his father died in January 1105. However, he was removed from power by his uncle Muhammad Tapar (d. 1118), who had already proclaimed himself sultan and won over the majority of Barkyârûq’s commanders and administrators.
