Abstract:   (156 Views)
The Javanshir Turkish dynasty, gaining power in the region, established dual relations with Iran and Russia. To strengthen relations, Fath Ali Shah married the daughter of Khan Javanshir. This connection did not prevent the Javanshirians from consolidating their political attitude towards the Iranian government. Aghabigam Agha, a poet and aware of the new civilization became the wife of Fath Ali Shah. This marriage failed in the private and emotional dimension, but caused the influence of Javanshirians and Qarabaghians in the power structure of Iran. This article, based on the method of historical analysis, has described and interpreted the role of Javanshiri women in the Qajar harem and later in the power of Iran. The marriage led to the establishment of the Qarabaghian network in the Qajar court, which ranged from court and diplomatic, judicial to conspiracy theories.  Other marriages of Javanshiri women with other princes also strengthened this network. The Karabakh network became an important local and regional intermediary for political and trade relations with the Russians and the Caucasus. The network, which had its roots in the harem, was supplemented by a military, security, commercial and court network.
