Turanshah, also Turan Shah (Arabic: توران شاه) (epithet: al-Malik al-Muazzam Ghayath al-Din Turanshah (Arabic: الملك المعظم غياث الدين توران شاه)) was a son of Sultan As-Salih Ayyub. A member of Ayyubid Dynasty, he became Sultan of Egypt for a brief period in 1249-1250. He was assassinated on 2 May 1250 by 500 Bahriyya guards who began slashing their swords at him while he was feasting in his pavilion. He went to the river, pleading for his life, until Faris al-Din Aktay, an obscure officer, killed him.
