Ahmad Kasravi was born in 1890 in an impoverished borough of Tabriz. Raised to be a clergyman, he became a zealous champion of constitutionalism, having witnessed his town’s constitutionalists’ courageous fight for the Majles and the rule of law. Moved by the terrible suffering his province of Azerbaijan underwent in the course of the revolution, he drafted a version of the present history around 1922. He was assassinated by a Shi`a Muslim fanatic in 1946.
