By the second and third century AD, there were small kingdoms in the Wakhan and Shugnan.  These kingdoms later became part of the Akhemenid Persian Empire.  Subsequently, this empire was conquered by Alexander the Great, after which the area came under the rule of the Khushanids from Northern India and the Sasanids from Persia.  These semi-independent statelets continued to exist through to the early 20th century.
