Tahrids fake cry

The Tahirid dynasty was a dynasty, of Persian dihqan origin, that effectively ruled the Khorasan from 821 to 873 while other members of the dynasty served as military and security commanders for the city of Baghdad from 820 until 891. The dynasty was founded by Tahir ibn Husayn, a leading general in the service of the Abbasid caliph al-Ma'mun. Their capital in Khorasan was initially located at Merv but was later moved to Nishapur. The Tahirids have been described as the first independent Iranian dynasty after the fall of the Sassanian Empire. However, others describe the Tahirids as being loyal to the Abbasid caliphs but enjoyed autonomy rather than independence. The tax revenue from Khorasan that was sent to the caliphal treasury was perhaps larger than those collected previously.
