This is a fascinating photo essay and animation titled "Nasseredin Shah and his 84 wives". Not only does it give insight into the Qajar court at the time of Nasseredin Shah, it also provides a fairly good understanding of why things became how they are in our country, looking at it from an historic perspective at least. It also contains a rare view into Iranian mentality and culture matched by not many other documents.

Recommended to everyone!

Great video, especially the song at the end

by Siavash300 on

Very informative. Clearly show Nasser-din-shah sexual perversion. Most likey pedophilia at the end of his life. Mosaddeq was born in one of his palaces in Tehran. His real name was Mohammad Ashtiani. Nasser-din-shah called him "Mosaddeq". 

At the end of the video, beautiful song with lovely woman's voice  gives good emotional journey to  the viewers.


84 vs 300!

by Tavana on

Fascinating indeed! But one thing though! As all of the Supreme Emperor's wives look exactly like men in ladies' costumes, one might think that the story shown about the ancient Persian Empire on movie 300 could have been true after all!

PS: A must watch video for all those who claim Iranians to be of Aryans origin!


Indeed, a great blog!

Like Divaneh, I was only planning on watching a few minutes of the video, and I ended up watching the whole thing.  Couldn't turn it off.  

Thanks for sharing.

Those who roam around the world and call themselves “prince and princess” should watch this doc and be more proud of their fat and ugly mustached grammas and their lumpish degenerated grandpas.

Such a shameful, retarded King

No wonder, where we are. 

In the history of IRAN, anyone who tried to do something good for the country & Iranians he was removed,assasinated or deporI come to this coclusion Iranians need to be educated in school from early childhood about their national duties to their Vatan and HamVatanan.

It is fascinating that story of Nassereddine shah and his 84 wives explains how we got to where we are today. somehow I think it only explains part of story. But still, sounds interesting. thanks.

I don't know how he did it, but the man was on a mission!


Thank you Parham. I learned a few things today.

One can relate a lot of what is going on to the complexes stashed within people throughout years and years of this nonsense... If that's what you meant, of course.

No wonder

"No wonder it was expensive to run the harem."

No wonder today every man is legally allowed to have a harem.

Great find Parham.
