The Bakhtiari are one of the largest of all the Iranian nomadic tribes. They were especially politically important during the Constitutional Revolution – successfully invading Tehran in 1909. Just before that, in 1908, the first find of Middle East oil was in their tribal areas.

Location: Bakhtiari (South west Iran)
