In the beginning of the World War I, Iran’s government decides to remain neutral in order to save the country from further damage. But the countries in war, especially the allied powers (Russia and Britain) and the axis powers (Germany and the Ottoman Empire) ignore Iran’s stance and turn the country into their political and military battlefield. In this situation the young Ahmad Shah Qajar, Iran’s king, feels helpless facing these highly experienced foreign politicians. The young king remembers nothing from his childhood or teen years, and during one of the toughest historical points of Iran when the Russians and the British politicians interfere with most of Iran’s internal affairs to the point of affecting Iranian people’s personal lives, he meets Konts de Gotti, the daughter of Austria’s prime minister in Iran. Austria is one of the countries fighting alongside Germany against Russia and England. The Shah’s relationship with Konts de Gotti, who is older than the Shah, causes some objections from the British and the Russian ministers in Tehran, since they suspect that she may be a spy working for their enemies that has managed to force herself into Shah’s dynasty and heart. So the Russians and the British widen their territories and occupy Karaj, and their forces advance until the gates of Tehran. Since the new and undeveloped constitutional government of Iran lacks any considerable military and financial power and seems incapable of confronting the enemy, Mostofi and Modarres and a couple of others suggest a solution to Ahmad Shah. The Shah accepts the suggestion of these noble patriotic men and announces that he intends to move the capital of his dynasty from Tehran to Isfahan, one of the most active cities against Russia and the Britain, and will hand the affairs to the radical anticolonial forces. After the ministers of Russia and the Britain hear the news about Shah’s intentions, they demand him to reconsider his decisions and Ahmad Shah tells them he would do so under one condition, that the British forces abandon Bushehr and the Russian forces retreat from Karaj, Qazvin and the north of Iran. The ministers accept Shah’s offers but they also put forth a condition, that the Shah should stop seeing Konts de Gotti. Despite his great love and affection towards her, Shah accepts their offer.
