Abstract

Introduction In 1956 the then state of Timürid studies was lucidly described by Professor Hans R. Roemer in the introduction to his edition of the Shams al-Hu$n of Täj al-Salmäni1), the work dubbed by Barthold Anonymus Shäh-Rukh. Professor Roemer gave comprehensive references to the work of Barthold in this field, and to the more recent contributions of V* Minorsky, W. Hinz, F. Tauer, J. Aubin, and others. To the best of my knowledge, however, there is nowhere to be found a eonnected account of events in Persia from the death of Timür until the enthronement of Shäh Ismail Safawi at Tabriz (1405--1501). In the following account I have avoided äs far äs possible duplicating the work of the scholars mentioned above, and I have omitted much detail in the hope that the general outline of events may perhaps emerge a little more clearly2). The Rise of the Qarä Qoyunlu The campaigns of Timür in Persia between the years 783--807/ 1381--1404 put an end to the minor dynasties which had sprang up in various parts of the country after the Mongol invasions and especially after the death of the Ilkhän Abu Sa'id (736/1335), when Mongol power in, Persia began
