Shahs of earlier dynasties
Hey there! Do you have any thoughts about past
shahs of persia? Which ones do you remember the most and have interest in?
Shahs that has caught my attention are:
In the pre-islamic era:
Cyrus the great (Kurosh). Often referred to. He is known for a lot of good things. Established many human rights.
Darius the great (Dariush). Mentioned in the bible as someone who gave freedom of belief to the jews.
King Khosro (Khosro). Believed and encouraged arts. Supported Court musicians which laid a foundation for the persian traditional/classical music.
Shah Abbas. I associate him with having built some of the greatest places in Esfahan, Iran.
