Qajar Descendants That We Did Not Know

  Between 1785 and 1925, an Iranian family of Oghuz Turkish descent ruled Persia, now Iran, in what was called the Qajar Dynasty. Though the first ruler aimed to reunify Iran, over the course of the family’s reign they experienced both significant gains and losses of land, losing control of large areas of the Caucasus and Central Asia as a result of the expansionist Russian Empire, which was constantly locked in conflict with Great Britain.
