Cyrus is it true that Achamanid kings and nobels wore false beards?

No, but I don't think they had long beards.

This is confirmed in Muslim texts as well. (Assuming that Achamenian Kings and Sassanian Kings had the same traditions)

The administrator of Yemen, appointed by Sassanian ruler at the time, sent two envoys to the Messenger of Allah (sall Allahu alay wa salam) to summon him.

When they came into his presence, he noticed that they had shaved their beards and grew their moustaches.

He irked to look at them (because of their odd appearance) and he said: Woe be to you, who told you to do so? They replied: "Our lord! (referring to the Sassanian King.)" The Messenger of Allah (sall Allahu alay wa salam) then said:

But my Lord, may He be exalted and glorified, has commanded me to leave alone my beard (Classified as "Hasan" by Al-Albaani)


In any event, that is a very interesting map and graphic, Cyrus, thanks.
