The present article is devoted to a study of General Alexey Yermolov's attitude towards details, connected with the etiquette of reception of ambassadors at Fath-Ali Shah's court. Unlike other European ambassadors, the General opposed vigorously to appear before Fath-Ali Shah and the heir to the throne, Abbas Mirza, in red cloth stockings. He appeared before the Iranian officials, wearing the boots of a general of the Russian Empire, and through this behaviour demonstrated to the Persians that Russia — Iran's most powerful neighbour — would yield nothing to it. From the information about to whom Alexander the I sent personalised gifts, with whom General Yermolov conducted negotiations, and who was present at the dinner given by the Russian ambassador in Sultaniye, it can be deduced that in the 1820s the supreme official and military hierarchy of Persia was still the same as it had been established during the first years of Fath-Ali Shah's rule.
