When the Great King granted public audience in the open to all his subjects on the Nowruz and Mihrigan days, the humblest members of the population had the privilege to present to him petitions and complaints which might be against the highest personages in the Empire including the Sovereign himself. Both by law and by disposition he was most solicitous to see that no was obstructed in doing so, and a herald pronounced the direst consequences to any one attempting such obstruction.
If among the petitions and complaints the Great King thus received, a complaint was presented against himself, he immediately get down from the throne on reading it, took the crown from his head and placed it on the empty throne, and turning to the Supreme Spiritual Lord who sat beside him, handed him the complaint on knees and begged him to hold inquiry in the case and pronounce an impartial judgment. If this was pronounced against the Great King he immediately had to make amends to the wronged party before wearing again the crown and resuming the throne.



Relief of Khosrow Anushiravan the Just

Khosrow Anushiravan rebuilt the winter palace at Ctesiphon, and the great arch of his palace, "The Arch of Khosrow", still remains and in its time was the worlds largest single span of brickwork. He invited the world's ambassadors to visit his Great Palace, the Roman ambassador says when I asked the Persian emperor why the square in front of the palace was irregularly shaped, he simply answered that it could not be otherwise because part of this land was owned by an old woman who declined to sell at any price! Then I said this is indeed the most beautiful part of your Palace!

You once posted something about Boston Globe saying that John Kerry is related to a Saffavid prince. Is that a joke or is it true?

The Safavids were founded at zarbijn, not Persia (Persia is just a province of Iran, as Cyrus said many times).

Both Bush and Kerry are supposidly related to the Queen of England.
But i take these claims with a pinch of salt, i mean, everyone famous seems to be related to the queen or elvis or Ghengis Khan these days.....
Arrrgh!!"
