After the outbreak of the ConstitutionalRevolution in Persia, the British desire for cooperation with Russia placed the Foreign Office in London on a collision course with the Persian nationalist and constitutionalist reformers, many of whom initially looked to Britain for diplomatic assistance in countering overt Russian support for the Persian autocracy.
Groups within the Persian opposition, still regarding Britain as Russia's traditional regional foe, were turning to British diplomatic staff in that country for support, particularly in light of the Russian legation's overt encouragement of the shah to resist the opposition's demands.
The society was co-founded by the president of the Persia Committee, the Conservative Lord Lamington, and the Persian representative in London, Mehdi Khan Moæir-al-Molk.
