Note: This Jajali family is related to the Dowlatshahi family through Tahmasp Mirza, Moayyed-ed-Dowleh, son of Mohammad Ali Mirza Dowlatshah. There are in fact other Jalali-Qajars who are not related to this branch and we are still researching that family's roots.


Ancestor: Fath Ali Shah Qajar;


His son:

1. Mohammad Ali Mirza, Qavam ol-Khelafa, "Dowlatshah," (1789-1821), Fath Ali Shah’s eldest son (seven months older than Abbas Mirza Nayeb-Saltaneh), born of a Georgian woman, Ziba-Chehr Khanoum, of non-Qajar origin, and thus on account of that, unable to claim the title "Valiahd." Governor of Kermanshah, he was a fierce rival of Abbas Mirza Nayeb-Saltaneh until his untimely death from cholera in 1821. His skills and ambitions mirrored those of his younger brother. He was a great military leader and a patron of the arts, poetry and philosophy. The origin of family (patronimic) name "Dowlatshah" and "Dowlatshahi" is from this ancestor’s title. See Dowlatshahi family page for complete family tree of Dowlatshahis.
