Kamrani (Kadjar)

Ancestor: Kamran Mirza, Nayeb Saltaneh, son of Nasser-ed-Din Shah Qajar (Kadjar).

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.
