Nader shah

Turkoman military leader Nadir Shah fought the Afghan occupiers of Iran in the 1720s and eventually expelled them. He took the Iranian throne in 1736 and built an empire that included Iraq, Afghanistan, and parts of India. The empire disintegrated after his assassination in 1747.





Mohammad Mosadegh

Iranian political leader Muhammad Mossadegh was Premier of Iran from 1951 to 1953. Pivotal in the nationalization of the oil industry in Iran, his uncompromising stand brought him into direct conflict with the shah. Dismissed by the shah, Mossadegh briefly seized power causing the shah to flee Iran. Mossadegh was quickly overcome by Royalists and tried for treason.
