Arab Shah Muzzaffar ( Arab Shah , Arab Oglan , tat. Ğərəpşah, Garәpshaһ ), in the ancient Russian chronicles known as Arapa - Khan of the Golden Horde ( 1377 - 1380 ) in the period of the Great Jambs .
Paternal descendant of the fifth son of Jochi , Khan Shiban .
The exact date of birth is not definable, since both Old Russian and Tatar-Mongolian written sources mentioned the statesmen of the Trans-Volga only in connection with any events. Information about him appears, starting from 1377 , when he makes a campaign against Russia. For the unified Moscow-Nizhny Novgorod army, which came out to meet the Tatars, the military action to prevent the raid turned into a crushing defeat, later received the name of the " Pian slaughter ".
Modern historians suggest, following the indication of the Russian chronicles, that the Arab Shah at that time transferred to the service of Temnik Mamai (the ruler of the western part of the Horde) and view the march against Russia as punitive. However, other interpretations are possible. After the defeat of the Russian army ( August 2 ), the Arab shah plundered Nizhny Novgorod ( August 5 ). And in the same year he made a raid on Zasurie . After that, information about him in the annals stop.
According to numismatic data, Arab Shah briefly seized Saray (the capital of the entire Horde). Known minted them coins 779 g. (May 1377 - April 1378). His rule seemed to continue until the capture of Saray by Tokhtamysh .
