Kuchum khan (Tatar: Km, Russian: Кучум) (? - ca. 1598) was the last khan of Siberian Khanate. Kuchum was the son of prince Mortaza from the Shayban dynasty (Şyban). In 1554 he contested the throne of Siberian Khanate against Yadegar (Ydegr) and Bekbulat, vassals of Ivan IV of Russia. In 1563 Yadegar was defeated (and fled or was killed), Kuchum assumed the throne.
