The Safavids were a long-lasting Turkic-speaking Iranian dynasty that ruled from 1501 to 1736, established Shi'a Islam as Iran's official religion and united its provinces under a single Iranian sovereignty, thereby reigniting a pre-Islamic Persian identity and acting as a bridge to modern Iran.
In the meantime, the navy-less Safavids lost the island of Hormuz to the Portugese in 1507.

The Safavid Empire was established in northern Iran in 1501.
Safavid kings ruled over Iran (frequently called Persia in European languages) 1501-1722, though puppet rulers nominally reigned until 1736.
After several campaigns, Safavids recaptured Baghdad in 1623 and lost it again to Murad IV in 1638, during which time a permanent border was established by treaties, which is still valid between present Turkey and Iran.
