Format: Hardcover
Safavid Empire which included Persia was created and ruled by Azeri-Turkic. This state covered east of Turkey, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, some parts of Iraq and even Nothern India.

Persian-nationalist historians 'work hard' to claim this State as Persian, which is completely wrong and silly.

Shah Ismail I (Khatai - his literture nickname) was truly of Turkic origin (only 1/4 of his blood was of greek-georgian) and wrote ALL his literature in Azeri-Turkic. People in shah palace spoke in Azerbaijani, which was also said by famous Russian scholars.

Shah Ismayil declared Ardabil, Tebriz and other cities of Southern Azerbaijan because he wanted to govern the state better from central location and also because he was originally from Ardabil.

Hence, Safavid Empire is part of today's Azerbaijan Republic history.
Safavid Empire is one of 17 historical turkic empires.

Finally, Persia was under rule of Safavid Turkic Empire.

Therefore, any attempt to call this state as 'Safavid Persia' is absolutely wrong and will be always objected by Azerbaijanis...
