According to historical records he is one of the last male members of the Zand dynasty which rules the Persian Empire 1747 to 1779. His great, great, great grandpa was Karim Khan Zand. He was a compassionate ruler who refused to assume the title of shahanshah (king of kings) but used that of the vakil (regent). The civil war that followed Karim Khan's death ended only with the final establishment of the Qajar dynasty. His death in 1779 was followed by internal dissensions and disputes over successions. Karim Khan appears to have been a wise and just ruler and was greatly mourned on his death in 1779. Between 1779 and 1789 five Zand kings ruled briefly. In 1789 Lotf Khan (ruled 1789 to 94) proclaimed himself as the new Zand king and took energetic action to put down a rebellion led by Agha Mohammad Khan Qajar that had begun at Karim Khan's death. Outnumbered by the superior Qajar forces, Lotf Khan was finally defeated and captured at Kerman in 1794. His defeat marked the final eclipse of the Zand dynasty, which was supplanted by that of the Qajars.
