"During the Safavid period Azerbaijani Turkish, or, as it also referred to at that time Qizilbash Turkish, occupied an important place in society, and it was both spoken at court and by the common people. Although Turkish was widely spoken in Safavid Iran this fact is rarely mentioned. Usually neither Persian nor European authors mention in which language people communicated with each other. The Turkish spoken in Safavid Iran was mostly what nowadays is referred to as Azeri or Azerbaijani Turkish. However, at that time it was referred to by various other names. It would seem that the poet and miniaturist Sadeqi Afshar (1533-1610), whose mother tongue was not Azerbaijani Turkish, but Chaghatay (although he was born in Tabriz), was the first to refer to speakers of Qizilbashi (motakallemin-e Qizilbash), but he, and one century later `Abdol-Jamil Nasiri were the exception to this general rule of calling the language “Turki.” The Portuguese called it Turquesco. Other Europeans and most Iranians called it Turkish or Turki. For the sake of simplicity and to avoid confusion we call the Turkic language used in Safavid Iran, Azerbaijani Turkish.

Throughout the Safavid period there were two constants as to Azerbaijani Turkish as a spoken language in Iran. First, it was and remained the official language of the royal court during the entire Safavid period. Second, the language remained the spoken language of the Turkic Qizilbash tribes and also was spoken in the army. Browne observed that the Safavid army’s war cry «was not ‹Long live Persia!› or the like, but, in the Turkish language, ‹O my spiritual guide and master whose sacrifice I am!’» Until 1590, the Qizilbash tribes had a hold on certain provinces (e.g. Shiraz: Dhu’l Qadr; Yazd; Afshar; Herat: Shamlu). This had consequences for how Azeri Turkish was diffused. During the 16th century this meant that Azeri was also spoken by various groups outside NW Iran, but after the break-up of the Qizilbash links with certain provinces Azerbaijani Turkish mostly withdrew to NW Iran in the 17th century, certain Turkic pockets remained in the rest of Iran.

As noted above, the fact that the court language was Azerbaijani Turkish of course promoted the use of that language in the capital cities (respectively, Tabriz, Qazvin, and Isfahan). In fact, at court more Turkish was spoken than Persian. In 1607, the Carmelites reported that “the Turkish language is usually spoken and understood and the Shah [`Abbas I] and chief men and soldiers generally speak in it. The common people speak Persian, and all documents and communications are in that language.” The court ceremonial was also in Azerbaijani Turkish. The Italian traveler Pietro della Valle wrote: «that the Qizilbash grandees told him that: ‹Persian is a very soft and sweet language, and really used by women for poetry, but Turkish is manly and fit for warriors; therefore, the shah and the emirs of the state speak Turkish.’»

Under Shah `Abbas II, the Carmelites reported that “Turki [not Osmanli Turkish] was the language of the court and widely used in Isfahan and in the north.” Chardin explicitly states about the Qizilbash, “these people, as well as their language, are so widespread in the northern part of the country, and later at court, and therefore, mistakenly all Iranians are called Qizilbash.” In 1660, Raphael du Mans wrote: “the every day language of Iran is Persian for the common people, [Azerbaijani] Turkish for the court.” According to Kaempfer, who was in Iran in the 1670s, “[Azerbaijani] Turkish is the common language at the Iranian court as well as the mother tongue of the Safavids in distinction of the language of the general populace. The use of [Azerbaijani] Turkish spread from the court to the magnates and notables and finally to all those who hope to benefit from the shah, so that nowadays it is almost considered shameful for a respectable man not to know [Azerbaijani] Turkish.” The French missionary Sanson, who lived in Iran between 1684-1695, states that Iranians regularly invoked the spiritual power of the king by using expression such as «qorban olim, din imanum padshah, bachunha dunim.» Azerbaijani Turkish remained the court language till the very end of the dynasty and Shah Soltan Hoseyn was even nicknamed yakhshi dir (‹It is good’),
because that is what he said to any official who submitted a proposal to him, as he was not interested in matters of state.


Arthur Edwards, a merchant of the Muscovy Company reported in 1567 that four copies of the trading privileges granted by Shah Tahmasp I were made «by his Secretarie,» … «whereof two as I required, are in the Turkish tongue.» During the reign of Shah `Abbas I it is noted in Russian sources that “The great envoys (of Russia) desired in their talks to the courtiers [of the Persian Shah], Ikhtam-Davlet [E`temad al-Dowleh] and his colleagues that the reply of the Shah should be in the Turkish language but in Tatar script.” This was the logical consequence of the fact that in the 16th-18th century the Russian tsars employed a considerable number of secretaries to translate incoming and outgoing letters to and from rulers in Europe, Asia Minor and the Middle East. In 1789, the Russian court employed 22 of such translators, eight of whom knew the Tatar (Turkic) language, and some of them knew «the Turkish language,» which presumably was Ottoman Turkish. The Russian envoys and ambassadors that were sent to Iran all carried official letters written in Russian with a translation in «the old Tatar language.» In reply, the Safavid court wrote its official letters in Persian or «in the old Azerbaijan language.» In the 16th and 17th centuries the Russian court received more than 55 letters from the «Qizilbash kings» written in the «Persian and Azerbaijani Turkish languages.» In 1588, the Russian court for the first time wrote a letter in the Tatar language to the Safavid court.

In short, Turkic languages and dialects played a much more important role in Safavid Iran than what has been the accepted wisdom so far, while Azerbaijani Turkish in particular was widely spoken and written in Safavid Iran. It was not only the language of the court and the army, but it was also used in poetry, even by renowned poets who usually wrote in Persian. The Safavid shahs, many of whom wrote poetry in Turkish themselves, promoted its literary use. Also, Turkish was used in the court’s official correspondence, both for internal and external affairs.

Also, it is known that Shah Ismail wrote approx 1400 verses in Azerbaijani Turkish (in comparision only 50 in Persian) under the pen name of "Khatai", for that very reason hes known as "Shah Khatai" among Azerbaijani Turks.

This link contains all of his literature works.

Thats like making connection between ancient Macedonians and modern Slavic Macedonians. The word "Azeri" was never used for Turks of Azerbaijan before 1930s. And in fact even the existence of a such historical people or nation is a mystery, there were probably Iranian languagues spoken to the south of Araz river, while most likely Caucasian languages to the north of Araz river. So I don't think its really possible to make any connection between "ancients" peoples that might have existed on opposite sides of Araz and modern-day Oghuz Azerbaijani Turks that have most of its origins in Oghuz tribes and are centered on both sides of Araz river. The myth of "Turkification" is a different topic in itself, but for God's sake if anyone that were victims of a cultural assimilation was Turks themselves. Read a bit on Seljuq subject, and I'm sure you will see it yourself. But instead of wikipedia, real books (maybe you can find on net) would tell you much more.

And your last sentence didn't really made any sense.


I'm haviing a distinct deja-vu on the TurkificationDead, so I won't repeat the whole stuff again. Take it or not, the Turks were not the first people per se, but qute late-comers, and lingustically and culturally assimilated others, just like almost every other culture did at one point or another.

The word ""Äzari" omes from Persian Agari, btw.
As for who reads what, there is enough literature to support the both points, so reading onne or the other is to a point selective. Here FYI Mister Henning states that Pesrian languages were spoken fisrt in Azerbaidjan, before the Turkik ones http://azargoshnasp.net/languages/Azari/henningazari/slides/heningazari1.htm

Considering that the whoever Turks who went to Azerdaidjan in like 11th century didn't exerminate all the Iranians there, but merely mixed with them /as a rule the coming people are always less than the ones aldeary living in every given place/, so as a conscequence the Iranians there were culturally Turkefied, not killed one by one and replaced by some perfect Turkic people.

I suppose the you will not like my last sentence as you defend the idea that the Safavid Empire was a Shia Turkish one /something that is highly suspiscious to me/. It makes perfect sence to me though.

But the word "Azari" was never used to describe modern-day Azerbaijani Turks before 1930s, and still not in Republic of Azerbaijan (the word is Azerbaijani and not "Azari"). And like said even the existence of such a people or nation is a mystery. You should be able to distinguish between theories and facts. However, like said, modern-day Azerbaijani Turks were never known with that name.

There was mass-migration of Oghuz tribes (there were total of 24 main Oghuz tribes and alot of smaller clans), we are talking about very big numbers here, and it was a process of few centuries, not just with Seljuq invasion. Even the Ilkhanate invasion (whom were Mongols) brought a new wave of big migrations and settlements, aswell after them. The Oghuz Ak-Qoyunlu and Qara-Qoyunlu both were confederation of tribes, and all of their tribes settled in Azerbaijan.

And there were Caucasian languages spoken to the north of Araz river, so what? Even when you look at the geographical distribution of Azeri Turks, that theory does not sound correct at all. And if we go by your logic, then why the centers of Seljuqs didn't become Turkic? Mind you that the center of Seljuq rule was not Azerbaijan, but modern-day Persian areas of Iran.

All of lands somewhere were populated by some another people at some point, Norwegians don't become Samis just because Samis populated Norway before the arrival of Germanics. And the peoples you mention didn't dissapear at all, there are Iranic Talyshes in their respective region, or Caucasian Lezgins, and other peoples/nations.

Just a century ago Azerbaijani Turks were described of leading a nomadic lifestyle, if you wish I can post the first-hand observation from early 1900s. Descriptions tells of a population that are very different from the sendentary, "soft" Persians and Iranians.

However, can I ask how is this related to the topic? Confused

Yes they were, not Turkish but Turkic, and what is it that sounds "highly suspicious" to you?

The Safavid Shahs were Turks and spoke Azerbaijani Turkish as their mother tongue, the Safavid military was composed of Turkoman tribes of Azerbaijan and Anatolia, which were called "Qizilbash" and the first Safavid capital was Tabriz, Azerbaijan.

Exatcly, the Turkeficatin of Azerbaidjan took several centuries; just like the Slavisization of the Balkans took some time to turn ancient Thracians into Bolgar-Slavs. And? The Iranians who lived in Azerbaidjan before the Tirks came didnt evaporate, they were more than the coming Turks, they just became assimilated.

And yes, the word Asari was nt used to describe Turks, but the autonomous people of Azerbaidjan, who were Iranians; and they were Turkifiied. After being Turkeied they were called Azeries.
It's related because the Azeries weren't Turks to start with.

Exactly in the period of the Safavids, 1502-1736, the Azaries were just Turkefied.

Only military means not much, otherwise all empires who used hired militry would be omething else. The Ottomans wiidely used the Yanichars who were Slvaics from the Balkans, so what? AFAIK, the iteraturre in the Safavid period was written in Old Aseri, being Iranian language, and culture is what is left after everything else. Thei werre Shia, alright, but Iranians, no Turks or as you put it, Turkic.

The Safavid Empre was multunationl, for one, and one of the hard parts was to iron the problems between the Turkic-speakers and the Iranian population, that was far vaster. I syppuse one can say that the Safavid Dynasti was Turkic, but not that the Safavid Empire was Turkik, as an Empire iis related to all people in the said Empire. In the same way I suppose that the military power may claim it's victories as Turkik - but not  the cultural achievements n the Safanid period, that are Iranian.

I think you are vastly mis-informed, if you are not just plain trolling. LOL

The literature was in Azerbaijani Turkish, as you can see the example of Shah Ismail I gave above. Azerbaijani Turkish was the language of court, and as we see in the first post of the thread, was also used at a state level. They were Shia Turks, nothing as "Iranian" existed back then.

Most of the facts is enough to label Safavid Empire as Turkic one. As I said, the capital was also located at a Turkic city.

Read some of the stuff I posted above.

And let me quote this, is it not clear? I would advice you to actually read the posts.

Here you go, if you have something to say about it, then go ahead, instead of just twisting words with no factual basis.

As you can see, Azerbaijani Turks were refered to as "Tatar" back then and not "Azeri", but read the actual words. He also makes a clear distinction between Azerbaijani Turks and other sedentary nations/peoples of Caucasus.

Aderbeydzhanskie Tatars, the most predatory tribe in the Caucasus. While, for example., Nadtartsy as inhabitants deaf jungle gorges and forests are calm exterior, walk slowly, slowly, speak softly, slowly and without interrupting each other, aderbeydzhanskie Tatars, on the contrary, as the unclean children steppes, accustomed for centuries a nomadic or semi-nomadic way of life, lively, loud, talkative, daring riders, their raskochevok or village hustle and noise communicated to our ear is a very long distance. The first neat and tidy, the second grubby and conduct themselves with less dignity, though sober and correct in dealing with people. Adzhar - robber sneaks carefully, holding their breath, and the best shot kills its prey more often around the corner. Tartar makes broad daylight most desperate attack, for example., Omnibuses to the traffic and takes less cunning as extreme insolence and unusual skill and daring. Tatars people generally lazy, sluggish, violent, extremely ambitious and hot-tempered. Blasphemy, sacrilege, bribery, deceit, fraud, they have observed, however, rare. But the row over pastures, Spend, sheep, dogs, women are common and they are now and then a dagger violence, Tatar marriage to a Christian entails killing the offending relatives - Muslims. Nomads stay in the Alpine heights is the best time to perform the planned revenge, as on alpine pastures can not extend enough oversight authorities, and nomads living there as lived from 100 to 1000 years ago. On the ground, the winter residence of the Tatars predatory instincts unasleduemye from ancestors restrained administrative regime, acting as a place with their herds, nomads out completely from the power of our laws.

There is no new population, there is an od assimilated one.
Frrm Asari to Aseri is ne one linguistic step, so fr me is obvious that is comes one from another; when it was used is immaterial.
Like every ther culture, Turks were assimilated and assimilated alike; that thhe Seldjuks became Persianazeed doesn't have anything to do with the Azeries becoming Turkefied.

I don't know what can be explained to someone with Turkophobia (a Bulgarian, big surprise).

Your posts don't even answer any of the things I say, you still haven't got it that "Azeri" or "Azari" was never used for modern-day Azerbaijani Turks? You still repeat the same thing although it was explained for thousand of times.

Excuse me, I had studied Erikson az a part of my Psychology course, but, AFAIK, he is not any authoruty in history.
I'm not twsting anything, bro, and I'm giving you literature on teh question. That you don't like it is not my problem. The Aseries were Asaries before they became Tatars and Aseries as a result of Turkification. So you are inseting a far later info that I'm talking about. I'm not taking about the 19th century, but the time of the Safavids - when the Iraneans in the area were just Turkefied.

Just a century ago Azerbaijani Turks were described of leading a nomadic lifestyle, if you wish I can post the first-hand observation from early 1900s. Descriptions tells of a population that are very different from the sendentary, "soft" Persians and Iranians.


And let me quote this, is it not clear? I would advice you to actually read the posts.

Here you go, if you have something to say about it, then go ahead, instead of just twisting words with no factual basis.

As you can see, Azerbaijani Turks were refered to as "Tatar" back then and not "Azeri", but read the actual words. He also makes a clear distinction between Azerbaijani Turks and other sedentary nations/peoples of Caucasus.

Aderbeydzhanskie Tatars, the most predatory tribe in the Caucasus. While, for example., Nadtartsy as inhabitants deaf jungle gorges and forests are calm exterior, walk slowly, slowly, speak softly, slowly and without interrupting each other, aderbeydzhanskie Tatars, on the contrary, as the unclean children steppes, accustomed for centuries a nomadic or semi-nomadic way of life, lively, loud, talkative, daring riders, their raskochevok or village hustle and noise communicated to our ear is a very long distance. The first neat and tidy, the second grubby and conduct themselves with less dignity, though sober and correct in dealing with people. Adzhar - robber sneaks carefully, holding their breath, and the best shot kills its prey more often around the corner. Tartar makes broad daylight most desperate attack, for example., Omnibuses to the traffic and takes less cunning as extreme insolence and unusual skill and daring. Tatars people generally lazy, sluggish, violent, extremely ambitious and hot-tempered. Blasphemy, sacrilege, bribery, deceit, fraud, they have observed, however, rare. But the row over pastures, Spend, sheep, dogs, women are common and they are now and then a dagger violence, Tatar marriage to a Christian entails killing the offending relatives - Muslims. Nomads stay in the Alpine heights is the best time to perform the planned revenge, as on alpine pastures can not extend enough oversight authorities, and nomads living there as lived from 100 to 1000 years ago. On the ground, the winter residence of the Tatars predatory instincts unasleduemye from ancestors restrained administrative regime, acting as a place with their herds, nomads out completely from the power of our laws.

Excuse me, I had studied Erikson az a part of my Psychology course, but, AFAIK, he is not any authoruty in history.
I'm not twsting anything, bro, and I'm giving you literature on teh question. That you don't like it is not my problem. The Aseries were Asaries before they became Tatars and Aseries as a result of Turkification. So you are inseting a far later info that I'm talking about. I'm not taking about the 19th century, but the time of the Safavids - when the Iraneans in the area were just Turkefied.


You know better than him, who witnessed it first-hand? He also wrote about other peoples of Caucasus, and makes a clear distinction between Azerbaijani Turks and other peoples of Caucasus.

There is no difference between "Azari" or "Azeri", are you making these things up yourself? The word "Azari" or "Azeri" was never used for modern-day Azerbaijani Turks before 1930s like said, and today still not used in Republic of Azerbaijan, the word is "Azerbaijani".

You don't even make a sense, do you read what I posted? So according to you the originally "Iranian Azeris" were assimilated to lead a nomadic lifestyle like that of Turkics? These were the times (19-20th century) that Azeri Turks began to leave their largely semi-nomadic lifestyle. During Safavids the nomadic traditions should have been stronger, and it was.

Tabriz was already described as a Turkic city during Ilkhanate era, and it was the Turkoman centre of region well before Safavids. So how did "Iranians just become Turkified during Safavids" when the area was long ago already Turkic before Safavids?

 Ericson is talking about what 20th century? I'm talkng about the vefore 11 to 15, so your choice of source has nothing to do with what i'm saying.
And no, I'm not trolling, ad I provided a source. You may disagree with my opinion, I don't mind, but I'll keep it, thank you very much.

Of course a culture can be assimilated to any style of life, his is not even an argument.
And my English is not any of your concern. Funny that you didn't give remarks like that when my location was marked US, /in another time and place, same topic/.

Please, refrain of personal remarks, such are forbidden on this forum. Amd this is your first warning.
