Isatay Taymanuly (Kazakh: Исатай Тайманұлы, Isataı Taımanuly; Russian: Исатай Тайманов; 1791 – July 12, 1838) was a Kazakh hero ("batyr") and leader (with his friend Makhambet Utemisuly) of a rebellion against Zhangir-Kerey Khan of Bokey Horde and the Russian rulers of Kazakhstan in the 19th century.

The rebellion began in late 1836 and the beginning of 1837.

Isatay was killed in fighting near the Aqbulaq River on July 12, 1838. According to Baymirza Hayit's book "Turkistan: Between Russia and China" after his army was defeated, İsatay batur got into a sword fight against seven Russian Cossack soldiers; eventually he got overwhelmed and was killed by decapitation.
