The Hazara-i-Karlugh (Persian: هزارهِ قارلوق) were the Turkic soldiers that founded and ruled the Turki Shahi dynasties from 1400 to 1700 in what is now the current Hazara area of Pakistan.
Hazara-i-Karlugh literally means "The Legion of Karlugh". Karlugh is a Persian pronunciation of the Turkic word Qarluq.
