  1. iran was a powerful nation who would give any colonizer big trouble up until nader shah's death in 1740s, and after that iran had enough to spare both land wise and resources wise on top of a strategically important position in middle east to dodge the colonialism era.

  2. omg the Netherlands mug now I dont care anymore how expensive the shipping is thank you for this

  3. They did that what Sultan Abdulhamid II in Ottoman Empire (1876-1909) did against the 5 big european powers.

  4. Iran was basically very politically intelligent, as well as lucky due to their geographical location and the fact that they hit so much oil and wealth. I mean there's a reason why their one of the most ancient and to this day powerful and sovereign people/nation

  5. 00:16 “19th Century Gang”

    2:17 “Ahmad Shah agreed to these terms because he didn’t feel like dying.”

    This is funny as fuck and educational, the “bruh faces” just make it better.

  6. Upstart Britain and Russia were outplayed by the oldest nation in the world ! This video made me a patron! Great job !

  7. Britain: You're late

    United States: An oil hoarder is never late, nor is he ever too early, he arrives at Iran precisely when he means to!

  8. Don't be morons. Iran was colonized by the Shah. Just because it is done in a covert manner does not mean it did not happen. There is a huge British and French influence all over Iran so don't believe all the so called "facts". There is a reason why there are Turks, Russians, Mongolian and other nationalities in Iran.
