A·zer·bai·jan

1. A historical region in present-day northwest Iran and Azerbaijan. It was settled by the Medes before the 8th century bc and later became a province of the Persian Empire. It became a separate kingdom after the death of Alexander the Great, but the region was much disputed and eventually conquered by Arabs (7th century), Turks (11th century), and Mongols (13th century). Persia controlled the region after c. 1605.
