The present article aims to investigate the essence of the first Pahlavi State given its institutional legacy for the next periods. Although the first Pahlavi state approaches a modernizing authoritarian state model in terms of deployment model and modernization functions, however, our understanding of the essence of this state would be incomplete if extended formation of state monarchy and its institutional results are left unnoticed. The extended monarchy model caused the aforementioned state to witness, in a clearly declining trend, the revival and reproduction of the Iranian Traditional Monarchy characteristics in the new state and fading away of other features of the former state under the influence of dominant traditional monarchy characteristics.
