The Ahmadilis[4] (Modern Turkish: Aksungurlar, Persian: ?‎), also known as the Atabegs of Maragheh (At?bak?n-e Mar?ghe, Persian: ? ‎), were a local dynasty who ruled from the early 12th century until 1208-09 in Maragheh itself and in Rn Dez for some years after the Mongol conquest. They ruled approximately from 1122 to 1220.[4]

Notices in the chronicles of this localised line of Atabegs are only sporadic, and numismatic evidences have not thus far been found,[4] so it is difficult to reconstruct their chronology and genealogy.[4] Bosworth says that they were a dynasty of Turkish origin that started with Aq Sunqur Ahmadili who was presumably a freedman of the Kurdish commander of the Seljuq Empire, Ahmadil ibn Ibrahim.[4] A female member of the family, Sulafa Khatun, was ruling Maragheh until these places were sacked by the Mongols in 1221.
