Soran


Soran
   Soran was a declining Kurdish emirate in what is now northern Iraq, when it experienced a brief revival early in the 19th century. Under Mir Muhammad Pasha of Rawanduz or Soran (called Miri Kor, or the blind mir, because of an affliction of the eyes), the emirate of Soran ruthlessly conquered much of what is now northern Iraq after 1814, only to be extinguished by the Ottomans in 1834. These events involved much intrigue between the Ottomans, Persians, Great Britain, and Russia. Miri Kor was finally invited to Istanbul and given many honors, but he mysteriously disappeared on his way back to Kurdistan. His brother Rasul became governor of Rawanduz until the wali, or Ottoman governor, of Baghdad expelled him in 1847.
