Mozaffar al-Din Shah of Qajar

Mozaffar al-Din Shah Qajar (1853January 1, 1907)(Persian: مظفرالدين شاه قاجار transliteration: Muẓẓafari’d-Dīn Shāh Qājār) was the fifth Qajar dynasty Shah of Persia. He ruled between the years 1896 and 1907.

He is credited with the start of Iranian Cinema, the creation of the Iranian constitution, and often wrongly credited with the rise of the Persian Constitutional Revolution which took place immediately after his death. He is often remembered as a largely ineffectual ruler who often suffered from ill health.
