Hadhabani (also: Hadhbani) was an 11th century Kurdish dynasty centered at Ushnu.[1] Their dominion included surrounding areas of Maragha and Urmia to the east, Salmas to the north and parts of Arbil and Mosul to the west.

About 10th century they gradually immigrated northward to the areas around lake Urmia with Ushnu as their summer capital. They ruled the area for a while but later split to a few branchs who spread across Azerbaijan (at times Turks still had not invaded Azerbaijan), and Caucasus. Saladin the renown Muslim ruler was descendant of one of Hadhabani branchs.[2]
