The Sword of Persia 2

Nader Shah
From Tribal Warrior to Conquering Tyrant

Michael Axworthy

 

The victory of Karnal and the conquest of Delhi made Nader an international figure on a wholly new scale. The news was carried all over the Muslim world by merchants and traders, and many thought a new epoch of Persian dominance was beginning. Representatives of the European companies in India and religious missionaries sent back reports of what had happened to their capitals, and were eagerly asked for more information on the Persian monarch and his achievements by return. The London newssheets reported his exploits... Within a few months books about Nader Shah were appearing in all the main European languages, and for a generation or more his name was familiar to educated people, if not a household word. In 1796 Arthur Wellesley, later the Duke of Wellington, took Jones’s _Histoire_ de_ _Nader_ _Chah _ with him to India. Nader’s campaigns also featured in Napoleon’s reading; and Byron mentioned him in _Don_ _Juan.
