Tablets to the Kings
___________________
Redirected from: The Proclamation of Bahá'u'lláh
___________________
Letters written by Bahá'u'lláh to the various kings and rulers of the time proclaiming His advent and instructing them in how to achieve the Most Great Peace. Bahá'u'lláh began His proclamation to the kings and rulers with His first Tablet to Sulṭán 'Abdu'l-'Azíz of Turkey, revealed while Bahá'u'lláh was in Constantinople. He revealed three other Tablets towards the end of His stay in Adrianople. One major Tablet, the Sáriy-i-Mulák, is addressed to all the kings and rulers collectively. Others revealed in this period are addressed to Náṣiri'd-Din S̲h̲áh and Napoleon III. Bahá'u'lláh continued His Tablets to the kings and rulers with the revelation of the Kitáb-i-Aqdas in the first few years of His imprisonment in 'Akká. Kings and rulers addressed at this time included Kaiser Wilhelm I, Napoleon III (a second Tablet), Francis Joseph of Austria and Hungary, Pope Pius IX, Czar Alexander II and Queen Victoria.
