    * Pourandokht *


    Pourandokht was the 31st Sassanid ruler. She succeeded Sharbaraz and became the first female ruler of the Sassanid Empire.Pourandokht, the daughter of Khosrau Parviz was chosen by the noblemen from among many princes as the most suitable person for the crown. As the 31st Sassanid ruler, she could not save Iran from a collapse that followed corruption in the royal family and general public dissatisfaction from the situation. She tried her best to rule the country in justice, this she declared in a letter sent to all corners of the kingdom: she ordered taxes to be written off, minted new coins, and started maintaining economic infrastructure such as roads and bridges, but her efforts proved to be in vain.
