Profiles

The manuscript “Memoirs of an Iranian Wanderer”, written by Abdul Ali Khan, the father of the late Jabar Khan, the butler of Naseruddin Shah, is about the events of the Constitutional Era. These memories include the events between 1284 and 1228 Shamsi (1850 and 1906). The author has been a waiter in the Qajar court since he was a teenager due to his father’s occupation. This job has been inherited to his sons as well. The important events that the author witnessed started from the era before the tyranny of Saghir. During this time, he was an officer of Tehran Municipality. After that, there is a description of the coup d’etat in 1287 (1909) and the closing of the parliament. Following the closure of the parliament and the establishment of the National Assembly, he returned to his work in the authoritarian regime, but the situation progressed in such a way that he was forced to flee from Tehran for six months. He returns to Tehran in Mehr 1286 (September 1908), and this return coincides with Seyyed Mirhashem Dohchi’s return to Tehran. Part of the book goes back to a narrative of Abdul Ali Khan’s personal relationship with Mirhashem. The final parts of the work refer to the story of the conquest of Tehran in 1288 (1909). During this period, the author was working in the Ministry of Justice. It is after the transfer of the author to the Ministry of War that he presents a first-hand account of the findings of anti-constitutional figures such as Sani Hazrat and Sheikh Fazlullah Nouri.
