When the Turkmen Seljuks stepped in the world of policy, Iran had passed through the historical experiences of establishing political evolutions and semi-autonomous powers in Abbasid era. These local dynasties left their precious heritage of political structure and legitimacy to the Seljuks to establish the first Islamic empire in the Medieval age. The Seljuks developed a combined method of their nomadic procedures as well as the Iranian bureaucracy system to dominate on the vast territories from Transoxiana to Mediterranean for nearly a century and a half. They developed the interaction and division of power among the main agents and institutions in the society to organize their own legitimacy. This paper aims to introduce the Seljuk S’political structure since the formation of the government until the end of Sultan Malikshah era (1040-1092) and based on the various sorts of legitimacies categorized by Marx Weber in order to, identify the procedures promoted by the Seljuks to legitimize their power that were unprecedented in the Iranian Islamic history.
