Khan Sanjar of Khazar was the last of the shortlived Khazar Khans, who ruled the Khanate from 660 - 670. During his long and unsuccessful reign, he earned the title the Decadent as a result of his debauched, wealthy lifestyle. He was slain at the battle of Samarkand in 670, which marked an end to the Khazar bloodline, though the Khazars themselves remained independent for another 6 years - and tributary to the Ummayads until 695, when the newly arrived Patzinaks shattered what was left of the Khazar tribes. However, one small inkling of Sanjar's bloodline remained in Saruke, Sanjar's youngest daughter, who had been captured and married to a junior member of the Ummayad house.
