This is Gohar Malek Taaj Keykavoosi, my mother's paternal grandmother (ie, her father's mother). She was Ahmad Shah's first cousin (dokhtar ameh). Her official title was "Monazeh-el-doleh." All of her children born before the Pahlavi regime were granted the "saltaneh" or "doleh" title after their first names by the court. Long gone, her children called her, and still refer to her, as "Maman-doleh".
