Babur bin Baysunkur rules Khorasan from Astarabad as a governor of the Timurid ruler Shah Rukh. Our ruler is Shah Rukh's grandson, and a claimant to the great Timurid Empire that once stretched from Anatolia to Delhi.

Shah Rukh is old, however, and his once firm grip over every affair in the empire is a thing of the past.

In Flag of Ajam Ajam his grandson, and our ruler's brother, Muhammad bin Baysonqor, is independent, in all but name. In Flag of Transoxiana Transoxiana their uncle, Ulugh Beg, has built a strong power base for himself. Though Flag of Fars Fars is ruled by the child prince Abdallah bin Ibrahim, his claim is just as true as that of his cousins.

Meanwhile the Flag of Qara Qoyunlu Qara Qoyunlu Federation has taken over Iraq and many of the western parts of Timur's original empire and in southern Iraq the millenarian Flag of Mushasha Mushasha have conquered Khuzestan and ousted the Timurid administrators from the region.

As 1444 draws to an end the fate of the empire seems uncertain. Should Shah Rukh recover he may well rule for a number of years yet, but the tension is tangible, every son and grandson has been waiting for the moment of the emperor's death their entire lives...

Khorasan is a country in Persia. It starts as a vassal of the Flag of Timurids Timurids.
