The Poshtkouh region was considered a strategic area in the western boundaries of Iran, and the Feyli governors who had ruled Pishkouh and Poshtkouh in Lorestan as local governors since the Safavid Dynasty were selected by the central government to rule the region. The present study aimed to investigate the following question: what were the changes occurring on the western boundaries of Iran in Poshtkouh during the Qajar era?
The study employed a descriptive-analytical methodology by relying on historical documents and maps and library resources, and the findings showed that the Poshtkouh region in the western boundaries of Iran witnessed relative changes in the Qajar Era due to the presence of strategic areas like the Seifi and Malkhatavi lands, border rivers like Konjancham, Gavi, and Changouleh, the Baghsaei region, and the salt mines of Poshtkouh. In this period, the Poshtkouh region did not suffer changes due to the military strength of its governors and the effective presence of the Tribes and clans of the region, and its geographical domain included parts of the Jassan, Badra, Zurbatiyah, and Tursaq in the Ottoman land.
