Askar Khan Afshar
Askar Khan Afshar (Persian: عسکر خان افشار) was a Persian ambassador who was sent to Paris, during the period of the Franco-Persian alliance. He arrived in Paris on 20 July 1808 and was able to meet Napoleon on 4 September 1808 at Château de Saint-Cloud. He left in April 1810, as Persia in turn allied with Great Britain, then France's enemy in the Napoleonic Wars.
