The realm of the Afghanistan (formerly Drangiana and Ariana ) lies between latitude 29 and 36 degrees north and longitude 78-90 degrees east, and forms with Sistan the present-day kingdom of Kabul (see that word). It is bounded on the east by Peshhawur and Sindh, on the south by Balujistan, on the west by Persia, and on the north by the Turkestan Khanates Balkh and Badakhshan, and covers an area of ​​12,200 square meters. The empire of the Afghans did not form a separate state until about the middle of the 18th century, after Achmed-Schach (1747-73) conquered the Afghans of the Persian. overbearance had been redeemed. In the following years A. was repeatedly ravaged by internal wars and disputes about the succession. With Mahrnud’s death in 1829 the 76-year Docrani inonarchy ended, and with the exception of Herat the empire passed into the hands of the Baraksi, so that Dost-Mohamined came to rule in Kabul, Kohan-Dil in Kandahar and Sultan Mohammed in Peshhawur. In 1838 the British Governor-General of the Indies, Lord Auckland, declared war on A. because Dost-Mohammed was waging war against Kandzhil-Singh the king of Lahore, who was an ally of England. In February 1839, the British Indian Army advanced through the Bolan Pass to A. up, and took 7 Aug. 1839 Possession of the chieftain Kabul. At the beginning of the winter (Nov. 2, 1841) a general revolt broke out against the British power, in which many officers of the English-Ind. poor were murdered. The resulting negotiations resulted in A. being evicted by the Englishman. On that retreat they were attacked by the fanatic tribes of the country, and about 16,000 of their number succumbed, either to the fierce cold or to the murderous enterprises of the Afghans. As a result, to chastise the Afghans from Kandahar, which had remained in the possession of the Engcians, a campaign was launched under General Nott, which ended in the total destruction of Ghasnah (September 6, 1842) and Kabul, as well as on the liberation of the British prisoners. Later (1846) the Afghans made an alliance with the Sikh against the Engcians, as a result of which several bloody battles were fought in the Ptinjab. At Gudzherat the Afghans and the Sikhs were totally defeated on February 21, 1849, whereupon the English entered A. again and began to subjugate the individual tribes.
