Ardabil Khanate was an 18th-19th century khanate based in Ardabil. The khanate is known as one of the Khanates of the Iranian Azerbaijan, located in Azerbaijan, which became for more than a hundred years semi-independent from the Iranian mother country.

«In Safavi times, Azerbaijan was applied to all the Muslim-ruled khanates of the eastern Caucasian as well as to the area south of the Araz River as fas as the Qezel Uzan River, the latter region being approximately the same as the modern Iranian ostans of East and West Azerbaijan.»--Muriel Atkin, Russia and Iran, 1780—1828. 2nd ed. Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press, 2008, ISBN 0-521-58336-5
