Vezhsai Agreement

The document has been denounced as hegemonic around the world, particularly in the United States, which also had plans to access Iranian oil fields. June 2, 1921, formally denounced by the Majlis. The Anglo-Persian agreement included Great Britain and Persia and focused on the drilling rights of the Anglo-Persian Oil Company. The “agreement” was awarded to the Persian government by the British Foreign Secretary, Lord Curzon, in August 1919. It was never ratified by the majlis (Iranian parliament). The ground floor (above the ground floor) of the new palace included two symmetrical groups of apartments, one for the king and the other for the queen, with views of the gardens. The two apartments were separated by a marble terrace overlooking the garden, with a fountain in the centre. Each group of apartments was connected to the ground floor with a ceremonial staircase, and each had seven rooms lined up; a vestibule, a guard room, a vestibule, a bedroom, a large wardrobe or an office; a smaller room and a small closet.

While the design of the king`s room actually came from the original design to decorate the House of pure, it nevertheless represents a great success in the ongoing restoration of Versailles.

In addition, this project, which took more than seven years to complete, required several hundred kilograms of silver and gold. [42] One of the most expensive efforts for the museum and the Fifth Republic of France was to buy back as much as possible the original furniture. Since furniture of royal origin – and especially furniture made for Versailles – is a coveted commodity on the international market, the museum has spent considerable funds to recover much of the palace`s original facilities.
