Shirvanshah

Shirvanshah (Persian: شروانشاهان‎, Azeri: Şirvanşah) also spelled as Shīrwān Shāh or Sharwān Shāh, was the title in mediaeval Islamic times of an Arab in Ethnos (but at first speedily Persianized, within their culturally Persian environment.) The Shirvanshah established a native state in Shirvan (located in modern Azerbaijan). The Shirwanshahs were also known by the title of Kasranids in certain periods.
