A while back ago I readed a book about the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict; the book called; “Black Garden: Armenia and Azerbaijan through Peace and War” by “Thomas De Waal”.

The book mentions an ancient state in the Caucasus called “Aghbania” or as Western sources call it “Caucasian Albania”.

Its well accepted that Azerbaijanis are natives to the Caucasus as most other ethnic groups there. So its highly unlikely that millions of Azerbaijanis just travel from Central Asia and settled in the Caucasus in 1918 and established a democratic state from air. So I want to know are Azerbaijanis descendants of Caucasian Albania? And would it be possible to add a map of Caucasian Albania here?

PS: Although Caucasian Albania and modern Albania share a common name, these two are independent states from very different regions, they are not to be confused.

What you say is a little confusing but with as much as I know there are no descendants from Albanians.
Albania used to be what was called Illyria and it is believed that Illyrians have been on that area since the beginings of the Roman Empire. There is a of of speculation about this beacuse it is hard for people to believe that a small place like Albania has such a long history.
To be honest, I read a lot of history, and I have never read about Azerbajanis coming from Caucasian-Albanian roots.
