In the time period between the 9th -11th centuries (AH) local historiography of Guilan flourished at an overwhelming rate. The declining role of the central government and expanding role of the local rulers of that time are one of the main contributing factors attributed for this growth. To further study the local historiography of Guilan, it is imperative to evaluate three important works associated with this time period, specifically: Guilan & Deylamestan, Khani History, and Guilan History. When the political structures of these works are analyzed, it seems that the authors of ''Guilan and Deylamestan'' as well as '' Khani History'' were both influenced by the authority and persona of Kiai rulers. Thus, the political condition of that time was given a high priority in their work. Moreover the personal bias of historians such as Marashi and Lahiji to Kiai rulers is apparent in their books. As a result, a favorable view of Kiai rulers is given in their reports. Conversely, in ''Guilan History'', Foumani presents us with a different outlook regarding the political climate of that time and the fall of local rulers. Foumani presents us with a wider scope, which emphasizes social and sociological issues and paints a more complete picture of the local historiography of that era. As the main topic of this research, we try to determine what were the factors that caused Guilan's local historiographers to emphasize their political tendencies in their works. Based on this question, we think that due to political conditions as well as serving in the court of rulers, historiographers viewed their works in the liaison of those rulers.
