Summary/Abstract: The question of Tinibek’s regiment is ambiguously considered in historiography. Russian, Western European and Arab sources, which cover the problem of devolution after Uzbek khan’s death, have been analyzed in this research. These documents let us think that Tinibek wasn’t a khan of Sarai. That point is also confirmed by the absence of silver coins minted on behalf of Tinibek. Benedict Pope’s letters represent some interesting information, according to which Janibek could become a heir in the lifetime of his father. However, Tinibek’s actions after Uzbek’s death show that he wished for occupying Sarai’s throne and did not intend to stay as a regent in Sygnak.
