Traffic of ambassadors increased dramatically during the second period of the Safavid rule. Regardless of what was going on in the treaties and agreements between them and the Safavid court, their reports in the travelogues confirm a change in the power relations that can be called declining developments. Such an issue appears somewhere beyond the court's attempt to show the court glamorously and emphasize authority in the face of ambassadors' observations. The narration of the court of the Safavid kings and the way they interact with the ambassadors, as can be seen in the travelogues, is an unconscious emphasis on the fact that a period of decline can be seen in the center of the Safavid power. This research, in a descriptive-analytical way, based on the travelogues of the second period of Safavid rule, will focus on the coming periods of European ambassadors to the court of the Safavid kings, in which a hidden narrative of the beginning of the decline of the  Safavid rule can be followed.
Keywords: The Safavids, Travelogues, Authority, Ambassadors, Decline.
