Teke is a major and historically one of the most influential modern Turkmen tribes. The Teke tribe can be subdivided into two, the Akhal Teke and Mary Teke. The Teke militarily resisted, mostly successfully, Persian incursions in the 19th century. The Teke came under Russian colonial rule in the 1880s. Though the Turkmen tribes defeated Russian troops during the first incursion of 1870, a subsequent invasion between 1880 and 1881, culminating in the second Battle of the Gokdepe resulted in imposition of Russian imperial authority. Today members of Teke tribe are found predominantly in the southeastern regions of Turkmenistan. They represent over a third of Turkmenistan's population (more than 1.6 million, as of 2014).
