要旨:When the Yuezhi, the Kushans of younger times, were dispelled from their pastures east of Dunhuang around 210 BCE they shifted towards the West and came to rest north of the Oxus river in "northern Bactria". There, some time later, they changed their government from a monarchy to a rule divided among five so-called yabghus. The exact local divisions of these yabghu-ships is disputed. Much later, when Xuanzang travelled to India, these yabghu-ships were still known, but their location is very different compared to what it may have been at the time of the installation of the system. The paper will address the problems connected with the expansion of the Yuezhi-Kushan realm. A people of migrant husbandmen had turned into a ruling class, ruling a number of peoples from northern Bactria down to Banaras for almost 200 years. How did they acquire the skills to boost economy to formerly unknown heights? Who told them how to govern different regions and peoples? Which role played the five yabghu-regions that we know from Xuanzang? And why did this vast and flourishing empire collapse?
