Persia

  • PERSIA(IRAN) International 
  • Formed: Jun 7, 2013
  • The name 'Persia' comes from 'Pers' which is in turn the European version of 'Pars' - an area that is today a province of Iran. 2,500 years ago, when the present provinces of Iran were kingdoms [at one time Iran (then Airan) consisted of 240 kingdoms*], Pars was known as Parsa, and the kings of Parsa established an empire that came to be known in the West as the Persian Empire - the largest empire the world have ever known to that point. In those days, Parsa was the dominant kingdom of all the Iranian or Aryan kingdoms. پرشیا نام چند هزار ساله ایران بود که از دوره رضا شاه و به دستور رضا شاه این نام به ایران تغییر یافت
