Tutush I

Abu Sa'id Taj ad-Dawla Tutush I (Turkish: I. Tutuş, Arabic: أبو سعيد تاج الدولة تتش السلجوقي‎) (died 1095) was the Seljuq ruler (probably sultan or emir) of Damascus from 1079 to 1095, succeeding Abaaq al-Khwarazmi.

Tutush, along with his general the Kakuyid Ali ibn Faramurz, were shortly defeated in a battle near Ray in 1095, where he and Ali were killed. Tutush's younger son Duqaq
