    * Fereydoun *



    Fereydoun is an Iranian Male First Name.Fereydoun: Son of the Waters is the name of an Iranian legendary Kiani king and hero who is an emblem of victory, justice and generosity in the Persian literature.Fereydoun in the Shahnameh:According to Ferdowsi’s Shahnameh (epic of kings) , Fereydoun was the son of Abtin, one of descendants of Jamshid. Fereydoun, together with Kaveh, revolted against the tyrannical king Zahhak, defeated and arrested him in the Alborz Mountains. Afterwards Fereydoun became the king and, according to the myth, ruled the country for about 500 years. At the end of his life he allocated his kingdom to his three sons; Salm, Tur, and Iraj. Iraj was Fereydoun’s youngest and favored son and inherited the best part of the kingdom, namely Iran. Salm inherited Asia Minor ("Rūm", more generally meaning the Roman Empire, the Greco-Roman world, or just "the West") and Tur inherited Central Asia ("Turan", all the lands north and east of the Oxus, as far as China), respectively. This aroused Iraj’s brothers’ envy and encouraged them to murder him. After Iraj’s murder, Fereydoun enthroned Iraj’s grandson, Manouchehr. Manouchehr’s attempt to avenge his grandfather’s murder initiated the Iranian-Turanian wars. (Wikipedia) - Fereydoon   (Redirected from Fereydoun)
