Short History of Constitution of Iran:
The Persian Constitutional Revolution (Enghelāb-e Mashrūteh), it is also known as the Constitutional Revolution of Iran, took place between 1905 and 1911. The revolution led to the establishment of a parliament in Persia (Iran) during the Qajar Dynasty.
The monarch Mozaffar ad-Din Shah Qajar signed the constitution in 1906, but he died shortly after and was replaced by Mohammad Ali Shah. The latter abolished the constitution and bombarded the parliament with Russian and British support in 1908. 
This led to another pro-constitutional movement that started from this house in Tabriz, constitution house. Tabriz was 11 months siege by central government with support of Russian and foreign supporters. The other constitutionalist from different cities joined this movement and they marched to Tehran. This forced Muhammad Ali Shah's abdication in favor of his young son Ahmad Shah Qajar and the re-established the constitution in 1909.
