The Audacious

58 In early March 1708, the Khan of Yerevan received the approval of the Persian court allowing Michel to travel to Isfahan. The Khan was also instructed to provide Michel with camels and horses for his transport and that of his company. Michel made it to Isfahan in mid-May 1708, and was received by both the Chief of Protocol and the ruler of Isfahan. When he eventually met the King of Persia, the King said he intended to send a diplomatic mission to France. In his meeting with the Prime Minister, Michel discussed all the matters of mutual interest between France and Persia. He then left Isfahan in October 1708 back to Constantinople.
