is roughly divided into periods by two wars with .Russia, to be noticed
hereafter, which ended respectively with the treaty of Gulistan in 1813
and the Treaty of Turkmanchai in 1828.
In spite of various precautions which Agha Muhammad Khan had
taken for securing the succession of his nephew and heir, Fat-h 'Ali
Shah was engaged for some time after he ascended the throne in con
tests with pretenders to the crown and other rebels against his authority,
During the lifetime of Agha Muhammad Khan he had been generally
spoken of as Baba Khan or Baba 'Ali Khan; but, after his coronation
