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".
