HISTORY

King Khrusro II was the last great Sasanian king of Iran, ruling from 590 to 628 A.D. The Sasanian Empire was the last Persian imperial dynasty before the arrival of Islam in the mid-seventh century A.D. Named after the House of Sasan, it endured for over four centuries, from 224 to 651 A.D., making it the longest-lived Persian dynasty. The Sasanian Empire succeeded the Parthian Empire and re-established the Iranians as a superpower. For the next four hundred years, it would be recognized as one of the leading world powers in late antiquity, alongside its neighbouring arch-rival, the Roman-Byzantine Empire. Tabaristan is a province in northern Iran, diverse in nature, rich in resources, and outstandingly beautiful. In Tabaristan, there are several fortresses remaining from the Parthian Empire and Sasanian Empire.
