No idea who the Marmakids were.

Some very basic info on the Il-Khanate:
The Il-Khanate was the Mongol Khanate that existed in Persia (modern day Iran) after the Mongols invaded the region. They attacked Iraq and destroyed Baghdad completely, ending the Abbasid dynasty, and with it the last of the Arab Caliphates.

They went on to conquer much of the Holy Land, before being defeated by Mamluke Egypt.

As for the essay, I think they are asking you how the Islamic world remained, well, Islamic, after the Il-Khanate destroyed Baghdad. Perhaps about how the Mongols were driven out, how the Crusades were stopped etc, maybe even the Reconquista in Spain.

Looks like an interesting course. I would like to take history actually, but unfortunately I'm not a great historian, I just like learning about history from people who are historians. So I just got mediocre grades in my GCSE history test, a C. In my mocks I got even worse.

Are you certain that is the correct spelling? I recall hearing something similar at one time, but it was more like Marmak Ades or something that sounded like that.

Marmak is a Hungarian family surname. I believe it is Magyar in origin. the Magyar were related to the Huns and Khans. I suspect the word has something to do with the Marmak family line.

Perhaps Marmak Kids is what is meant?
