Hi all, I've been making maps of the Persian Dynasties throughout history. I'll eventually improve them, but here's what I have so far! Hope you all find them useful! Note: All the maps are of the dynasties at their height, and so many not accurately reflect the entire span of the Empire, so please bare that in mind if you use them as reference for your TLs. Blue coloured dynasties are during the Zoroastrian period; green are Islamic. Median Empire - 600 BC [678-549BC] (Medes) Achaemenid Empire - 300 BC [550-330BC] (Persians) Parthian Empire - 10 AD [247 BC-224 AD] (Parthians (Northwestern Iranians)) Sasanian Empire - 622 AD [224-651] (Persians) Dabuyid Dynasty - 750 AD [642-760] (Tabari Persians) Saffarid Dynasty - 870 AD [861-1003] (Persians) Ghaznavid Empire - 1050 AD [962-1186] (Persianised Turks) Great Seljuq Empire - 1090 AD [1037-1194] (Turco-Persians) Khwarezmian Dynasty - 1206 AD [1077-1231] (Turkic Mamluk/Qipchaq origin - Persianised) Ilkhanate - 1258 AD [1256-1335] (Mongols) Muzaffarid Dynasty - 1350 [1314-1393] (Persians) Timurid Empire - 1405 [1370-1507] (Turco-Mongols, heavily Persianised) Safavid Dynasty - 1650 [1501-1736] (Kurds) Hotaki Empire -1724 [1709-1738] (Pashtuns) Afsharid Dynasty - 1739 [1736-1796] (Khorasan Turks, Persianised) Zand Dynasty - 1755 [1750-1794] (Disputed - most likely Kurds) Durrani Empire - 1789 [1747-1862] (Pashtuns) Qajar Dynasty - 1813 [1785-1925] (Persianised Turks) Pahlavi Dynasty - 1970 [1925-1979] (Persians) I'll do more soon, I also need to add cities.
