Amirghahari (Kadjar)


Ancestor: Kamran Mirza, Nayeb Saltaneh, son of Nasser-ed-Din Shah Qajar (Kadjar). (To see Kamran Mirza's seal click here.)

Shahzadeh Kamran Mirza, Nayeb Saltaneh (1867), Amir Kabir (1870), was born in Tehran, 22nd July 1856, son of Monir os-Saltaneh, daughter of Mohammad Taqi Khan, Chief Architect of Tehran, under Nasser-ed-Din Shah. On account of the non-Qajar origin of his mother, like his other famous brother Zell-e-Soltan, Kamran Mirza was not eligible for succession to the throne, though he was his father's favorite son and bore an uncanny resemblance to Nasser-ed-Din Shah. He was educated by private tutors and at the Imperial Miliatary College in Tehran and was given the rank of Field Marshall, Amir Kabir, by his father. He was Governor of Tehran from 1862 to 1873, Minister for War from 1869 to 1873, 1884, 1896 and 1906-1908 and Governor-General of Khorasan from 1916 to 1917.

He received the Order of the Royal Portrait (Temssaal-e Homayouni) from his father and the Grand Cross Order from Leopold of Austria (1880). He married several wives including a daughter of Shahzadeh Soltan Morad Mirza, Hessam os-Saltaneh, Conqueror of Herat. He died in 1927, having had issue ten sons and nine daughters, including:
