Only 6 years after the death of Mohammad Ali Shah in Italy, young Ahmad Shah dies at the age of 32 in a hospital in Paris reportedly because of kidney failure. None of Iranian officials attended his burial ceremony. Ahmad Shah fled Iran on Nov, 3, 1923 in fear for his life while Reza Khan was gradually gaining power. Both his death and his father's death raised eyebrows attributing it to a plan to eliminate the Qajar dynasty and replace it with a puppet regime. All grounds for eliminating the Qajar family from the throne were provided in Oct, 1925 and the Qajar dynasty had been officially overthrown on Dec, 12, 1925 by a decree approved by the parliament.
