Mirza Taghi Khan Farahani known as Amir Kabir (1807 – 10 January 1852), also known by the titles of Atabak and Amir-e Nezam; chief minister to Naser al-Din Shah Qajar (Shah of Persia) for the first three years of his reign and one of the most capable and innovative figures to appear in the whole Qajar period. Amir Kabir served as the Prime Minister of Persia (Iran) under Naser al-Din Shah. Born in Hazaveh and murdered in 1852, he is widely considered to be “Iran’s first reformer”, a modernizer who was “unjustly struck down” as he attempted to bring “gradual reform” to Iran.
