Viewed 96x Times

Farah Pahlavi (Persian: فرح پهلوی, née Diba (دیبا); born 14 October 1938) is the widow of the last Shah of Iran, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, and was successively Queen and Empress (شهبانو, Shahbanu) of Iran from 1959 to 1979. She was born into a prosperous family whose fortunes were diminished after her father's early death. While studying architecture in Paris, she was introduced to Mohammad Reza at the Iranian embassy, and they were married in December 1959. The Shah's first two marriages had not produced a son—necessary for royal succession—resulting in great rejoicing at the birth of Crown Prince Reza in October of the following year. Farah was then free to pursue interests other than domestic duties, though she was not allowed a political role. She worked for many charities, and founded Iran's first American-style university, enabling more women to become students in the country. She also facilitated the buying-back of Iranian antiquities from museums abroad.

By 1978, growing anti-imperial unrest fueled by communism, socialism, and Islamism throughout Iran was showing clear signs of impending revolution, prompting the Shahbanu and the Shah to leave the country in January 1979 under the threat of a death sentence. For this reason, most countries were reluctant to harbour them, with Anwar Sadat's Egypt being an exception. Facing execution should he return, and in ill health, Mohammad Reza died in exile in July 1980. In widowhood, Farah has continued her charity work, dividing her time between Washington, D.C., and Paris.

*** Disclaimer: There are conflicting reports re birth details of Shahbanu of Iran. We tested multiple options and we are more comfortable with the chart casted here, given it matches reported Persian date of Oct 14th ( instead of Oct 15th as used by most western astrologers) as well as 11:50 AM birth time courtesy of Astrodatabank: " Gwen Stoney quotes "Farah, Shahbanou of Iran" by Leslie Blanche for October 14, 1938. Fagan wrote that according to news clippings, she was born at 11:50 AM." The 2 AM birth time chart doesn't fit as well. Gaia
