"Harun-Al-Raschid" (763-809)

Al-Raschid was the Caliph from 786-809. The painting, which is dated 1864, tells of the meeting of a delegation sent to Al-Raschid by Charlemagne in the year 798. Among the gifts brought by the diplomatic delegation was a falcon (held here by a young man).

This shows the importance of falconry in Persia around the year 800.
