  • Notes 
    • Shah of Persia from the Qajar dynasty (23 October 1834 - 5 September 1848 ).
      first, Abbas Mirza was the chosen heir to the Shah. However, after he died, the Shah chose Mohammad to be his heir. After the Shah's death, Ali Mirza , one of his many sons, tried to take the throne in opposition to Mohammad. His rule lasted for about 40 days. Nonetheless, he was quickly deposed at the hands of Mirza Abolghasem Ghaem Magham Farahani , a politician, scientist, and poet.

      Ali was forgiven by Mohammad, who had then become Shah. Farahani was awarded the position of chancellorship of Persia by Shah at the time of his inauguration. He was later betrayed and executed by the order of Shah in 1835, at the instigation of Haji Mirza Aqasi , who would become the Ghaem Magham's successor and who greatly influenced Shah's policies. One of his wives, Malek Jahan Khanom, Mahd-e Olia , later became a large influence on his successor, who was their son
      He also tried to capture Herat , which was then owned by the British, twice. To try to defeat the British, he sent an officer to the court of Louis-Philippe of France . In 1839, two French military instructors arrived at Tabriz to aid him. However, both attempts to capture the city were unsuccessful
      Shah was known to be somewhat sickly throughout his life, and he finally died at the age of 40 of gout .

      Shah fell into the influence of Russia and attempted to make reforms to modernize and increase contact with the West. This work was continued by his successor, Nasser-al-Din Shah Qajar , who became known as a very capable leader . These efforts to modernize the country brought about a great interest in photography . Other artwork during this time includes a number of small-scale paintings on lacquer .
      During Shah's reign, the religious movement of Bábism began to flourish for the first time. Following his death, The Bab, Baha'u'llahs forerunner was executed in Tabriz. The Persian symbol of The Lion and Sun and a red, white, and green background became the flag at this time
