Queen Fawzia of Iran née Princess of Egypt (1921-2013)

I have found this photo showing a very beautiful Royal Lady...Does anyone know more about her? :) Thank you.


Empress Fawzia of Iran
Original caption: Portrait of Queen Fawzieh of Iran

Princess Fawzieh of Eqypt

Princess Fawzieh of Eqypt, eldest daughter of the King of Egypt, recently married the Shah of Iran. The Shah abdicated today and will be succeeded by his 21 year old son, the Crown Prince.

A part of a mystery solved...:)

Looks like the image does not always come up. Therefore I have downloaded the pics with lower resolution from the site. To get a better resolution, please visit

http://empireofiran.tripod.com/fawzia

The pics are numbered 1 to 24 I believe.
Here is the first again.

Asma2: I checked around to see why Shahnaz was not allowed to see her mother until she turned 18, and was told that it was most probably because of Princess Ashraf (the Shah's twin). I don't know if you are aware, but one of the reasons why Fawzia wanted a divorce was because she was miserable in Tehran. Some royal princesses did not like her (most probably Ashraf and her siblings) and unfortunately Fawzia could not handle them. Fawzia is known as "The Sad Queen" of IranThe other major reason was because she did not produce an heir or at least that's what was announced to the people. The same "royal princesses" (add to them Princess Shahnaz, Fawzia's daughter) also harrassed Soraya (the Shah's second wife). Anyway..... to cut a long story short, possibly Ashraf had something to do with Shahnaz not seeing her mother until she was able to make up her own mind when she turned 18.

Attached is a picture of one of the gifts given to the Shah (by the French government) on the occassion of his wedding to Fawzia. More information is available at Radio One Global :: Za Newsletter

Princess Shahnaz had married the prime minister of Iran, Ardeshir Zahedi. Go to the site www.zahedi.info to see pictures of their marriage, etc. and other such information. They had one daughter together who is currently not married. They all live in Switzerland.

She had such an otherworldly look to her! I'm glad she was in the spotlight in a previous era because had she been an empress or princess in this day and age she would have probably ruined her perfect face with plastic surgery!

i think someone else said that she makes all the other arab queens/princesses look so vulgar and that's the truth...she's so beautiful but it all seems so effortless.
