Marriage of Nasir al-Dawlah's daughter, 1905

Marriage of Nasir al-Dawlah's daughter, 1905

Hashim Khan Jalil al-Dawlah asked for the hand of Nasir al-Dawlah’s second daughter in marriage, though his first daughter was not yet married. Despite Najm al-Saltanah’s disagreement, the marriage was ultimately held due to mediation of Mirza ʻAbbasquli and Munavvar al-Saltanah. This upset the first daughter of Nasir al-Dawlah, who refused to speak with her sister as a result.
