Khusraw's Portrait Shown To Shirin
Khusraw's Portrait Shown To Shirin. 1495
Origin: Herat, 1495.
This piece was produced at the court of Soltan Hosayn Mirza Bayqara who was the ruler of Astrabad and Herat. It is probable that the tribes we know as Turkmen were vassal to Soltan Hosayn Mirza Bayqara. We can be relatively certain that at least the Yomut and the Gocklin were, and since Soltan Hosayn Mirza Bayqara was more powerful than the Khan of Khiva, it is likely that he was lord over all the Turkmen for at least part of his reign.
