The Beglik of Egypt (Turkish: Mısır Beyliki, Modern Egyptian: Βϵκλικο πϵ.Kῑμιτ), also called Turkish Egypt, was a Turkic state located in medieval Egypt and the Levant. It lasted from the overthrow of the Almohad malik (1087) until the Roman reconquest of Egypt in 1517, with the parentheses of Crusader invasion (1154–1171) and Kurdish occupation (1171–1240). The first period (before the Yazidi conquest) is known as Kipchak Beglik due to the origin of the reigning dynasty. The second period (until the Roman annexation) is called Karachay Beglik for the same reason.

Turk rulers (begs) were considered to be "true lords", with social status above Egyptian people. Thus, the Turks formed a military caste that prevailed in Egypt during almost five centuries. They maintained their traditional rites and faith (Tengrism), although they were tolerant with Christian faith, which was professed by the majority of the population. Indeed, the Turks leaned on the favoring of the Monophysite plebs over the Greek tradesmen of the Lower Egypt.
