This chapter examines the role of the court in the dialogue between the local and the imperial that shaped Aintab's entry into a vast empire. It explains that the presence of the court allowed people to pursue lawful strategies of resistance and thereby to engage local representatives of state authority in a dialogue about provincial governance. The chapter describes the political contract between the governing regime and its, subjects and the role played by the court in mediating tensions between them.

Keywords:   court, Aintab, resistance, state authority, provincial governance, political contract
