Dispersion of Power and Tribal Conflicts in Azerbaijan in the Wake of Establishment of Qajar Government
With the death of Karim Khan Zand and bloody disputes between Zand heirsregarding his legacy and the subsequent decline and fall of the power of the central government، as is typical in Iranian political history، once again an opportunity was created for regional and tribal powers in various states and provinces to expand their power and autonomy، seize the throne، or play a role in the power equations، based on their political and military power. Due to its unique and important position anddiversity of tribal and regional powers and their geographical distribution throughout this state، Azerbaijan experienced an important part of thesedisplays ofpolitical and military power. With the death of Karim Khan Zand، Azerbaijan tribal powers and mainly Donbalis and Afshars who since long ago traditionally ruled over parts of this vast and rich state، began to play a political role. On the other hand، this state attracted the attention of other claimants to power includingAli Mardan Khan Zand and Agha Mohammad Khan Qajar and each tried to take advantage ofthis dispersion and diversity of power. Eventually، by taking advantage of tribal disputes and conflicts of power contenders in Azerbaijan، Agha Mohammad Khan Qajar managed to take an important step towardsseizing the throne.
