Historical Information

The name Ansherekh originates from the fictional tiger Shere Khan from Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book, as Ansherekh is simply Shere Khan with the -an from Khan moved to the front of Shere.

The character Shere Khan (which literally translates to "Tiger King") was an arrogant tiger who proclaimed himself to be the lord of the jungle despite his own handicap, and would routinely attempt to prey on humans, which led to the events of the boy Mowgli being adopted and raised by a wolf pack and protected by the bear Baloo and the panther Bagheera. In adulthood, Mowgli eventually kills and skins Shere Khan as a promise to his wolf family, laying his skin across the wolf pack's council rock.
