In 1207 the Yenisei Kyrgyz fell under the oppression of Mongol leader Chenghiz Khan. After that in 12-15th centuries the nomads were taking the religion Islam. At that time, they were connected with Persian, Arab and Turkic traders.

In the 15th century, Kyrgyz people from South Siberia started to move to Central Asia. From 15th century to the 19th century, Kyrgyz people didn't have any state. Some leaders of Kyrgyz tribes tried to unify people, but the attempts failed. Each tribe has its own independent political views.

The Northern Kyrgyz tribe sent the representatives to the emperor. In this way they wanted to defend themselves from external and internal enemies. Internal threats were coming from the Southern tribes, which didn't support the annexation with Russian Empire. As a result they were joined by force and the nomadic way of life turned into the agricultural and citizen-like.
