1st Iranian Majlis

The 1st Iranian Majlis was a legislative assembly from Oct 7,1906, to June 23, 1908. Its session was formally opened by Mozaffar ad-Din Shah Qajar.

Mozaffar's son and successor, Mohammad Ali Shah Qajar, became Shah on January 21, 1907. He was against the constitution that was ratified during the reign of his father. In 1907 Mohammad Ali dissolved Majles (Iranian parliament/National assembly) and declared the Constitution abolished because it was contrary to Islamic law. On June 23, 1908, the Shah bombarded the Majles with the military and political support of Russia and Britain.
