The essay seeks to consider how the region of the Aral Sea initially functioned as a frontier zone and then, over time, as a newly-incorporated territory within the Khanate of Khiva in Khoresm, and how the dynasty of recently enthroned Qongrat rulers set about integrating the Aral region into their polity. In doing so, I hope to be able to show how Muḥammad Raḥīm Khān i, the Qongrat (r. 1806-25) shaped his geopolitical agenda according to the new spatial organization of his realm, and how the early 19th-century Khanate of Khiva was transformed by this newly configured balance between the settled and the nomadic worlds.
