The Anatolian Turkish Beylik of Aydınoğlu with its capital first in Birgi, and later in Ayasluğmarker (present day Selçukmarker), was one of the frontier principalities established in the 14th century by Oghuz Turks after the decline of Sultanate of Rum. It is named after its founder Aydınoğlu Mehmed Bey.

The Beylik of Aydınoğlu also held parts of the port of İzmirmarker all through their rule and all of the port city with intervals. Especially during the reign of Umur Bey, the sons of Aydın were a significant naval power of the time.

The Beylik was incorporated into the Ottoman Empire for the first time in 1390, and after the passage of Tamerlane in Anatolia in 1402 and the ensuing period of troubles that lasted until 1425, its territories became again part of the Ottoman realm, this time definitely.

The Beys of Aydınoğlu left important architectural works, principally in Birgi and Ayasluğmarker (Selçukmarker), their capital cities.

The city of Aydınmarker was named after the dynasty.
