Info The history goes back quite far, which is typical for this region. Bingöl successively came under the rule of various empires. It was a part of the kingdom of Urartu. The Assyrian king Assurbanipal conquered Bingöl 660 BCE. In the 7th Century BCE Bingöl became part of the Persian Empire. The Persians were replaced by the Seleucids. 60 BCE the Romans conquered the territory of the Arsacids. In 395 BCE Bingöl was part of Byzantium, who ruled here intermittently until the Arab invasion in 634 BCE.

After the Islamization of the region in the 13th Century Turkish Emirates were established. One of them was the Rum Seljuks, that conquered Bingöl in 1230 CE. In 1243 CE the Ilkhanate conquered the area after they had defeated the Rum-Seljuks. The Ilkhanate was followed by Aq Qoyunlu and subsequently by the the Safavids. The Safavids were defeated in 1515 by the Ottomans.
