1) The family name Mozaffari is in reference to descendance from Mozaffar-ed-Din Shah. The Mozaffari family, the Malek Mansours, the Kamranis, and a few others are among the more recent Qajar families descended from Nasser-ed-Din Shah and Mozaffar-ed-Din Shah. Offspring of the last two Qajar (Kadjar) shahs, Mohammad Ali Shah and Soltan Ahmad Shah retained the last name Kadjar.
