History of Azerbaijan The state of Azerbaijan as a state is about 5,000 years old. The first governmental organizations appeared on Azerbaijan’s land in the late 4,000’s – early 3000 BC. 1,000 BC there were strong states like Mina, Scheme, Skate, Seth and Caucasian Albania and Atropatena. These states played a major role in strengthening the culture of the government, the history of the country’s economic culture as well as the formation of a common nation.
In the third century AD, Azerbaijan was occupied by the Iranian Sassanid Empire and by the Arab Caliph in the seventh century. The invaders inhabited a country comprised of several Iranians and Arabs. With the introduction of Islamic religion in the seventh century, there was significant progress in the history of the country . Islam did not give up on Azerbaijan’s land but rather facilitated the formation of common people, languages, customs, etc. among the Turkish people.
Azerbaijan witnessed a new political development: Saddam, Sherwan shah, Salaridis, Rivadaviso and the Shadadi states were united by Islam on Azerbaijan’s lands. This is the intoxication of the country history. Secondary was the beginning. A new milestone in the country history can be considered as the end of the 15th to the 16th. Ismail Hate, a prominent politician, succeeded in uniting all northern and southern Azerbaijan lands under high rule. As a result, the capital city of Tabriz was created as the capital of the seafed kingdom, which later became one of the most powerful kingdoms in the Middle East.
Azerbaijan commander Nadir Shak, who came to power after the fall of the Seafoy Kingdom, further expanded the boundaries of the former empire. The ruler of Azerbaijan conquered northern India including Delhi in 1739. However, after the death of Rare Shock, the empire collapsed. Thus, in the second half of the 18th century the country joined the smaller states, namely the Khattis and the Sultans. At the end of the 18th century, Iran, the Kingdom of the country was under the control of the Godhars. They began to adhere to the policy of keeping the former Nadir Shah Empire and all the areas of Azerbaijan under the central rule.
Similarly, a long war broke out between the Caucasus and Russia, which tried to conquer the South Caucasus. As a result, Azerbaijan was divided between the two kingdoms on the basis of Gajilsan (1813) and Turkmen Chage (1828): northern Azerbaijan was linked to Russia, and the southern part was from Iran.
This period marks the beginning of the genocide of this Country residents by Armenian neighbors. The war of independence was very intense in northern Azerbaijan. Turkey’s aid won the independence movement, and in 1918 the first democratic republic – the this Country Democratic Republic (ADR) – was founded in Orient in northern this Country
Although its existence was short. On April 28, 1920, the announcement of the creation of the the country Soviet Socialist Republic (Azerbaijan SSR) was made on the territory of the ADR. In December 1922 Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Armenia formed the Transcaucasian Socialist Federal Soviet Republic. It became part of the Soviet Union in 1922, and the TSFSR was dismissed in 1936, and the the country SSR joined the USSR as an independent republic that existed until 1991.
However, there is another important page in the modern history of the country – Armenia – Azerbaijan Nagorno – on the controversy over annexation of the Karabakh Autonomous Republic. After declaring itself an independent democratic state (October 8, 1991), Azerbaijan lost six of its territories, including the Nagorno-Karaba autonomous region, following intense military combat operations. In 1994, countries signed a ceasefire agreement.
On August 30, 1991, Azerbaijan became an independent state.
