Mitterand, F - Farah

Mitterand, F - Farah
Farah Pahlavi, Empress of Iran, is one of the most remarkable personalities of our time. Farah Diba, a young student at the Fine Arts in Paris, became the wife of the Shah of Iran in December 1959 at the age of 21. A mother of four, she shares the great times and vicissitudes of Mohammad Reza's reign. She carried out a lot of social and cultural work with him and accompanied or represented him on numerous official trips abroad. Her activities earned her a crown from the Shah in 1967, the first wife of a sovereign in a Muslim country, proving before the eyes of the whole world a staggering progress in the status of women. After the Iranian revolution in 1979 and the death of the Shah, despite dramatic circumstances, the death of two of her children and the hardships of exile, Farah Pahlavi tirelessly defended the memory of her husband and his government and remained a constant presence at his son Reza. His dignity and courage earned him the respect and support of many Iranians, even at home, despite the continued threats of an obscurantist and brutal dictatorship. For the first time and with many previously unpublished images, she opens for us the album of her life, accompanied by her handwritten comments. Hardcover edition, in French, illustrated, size 24x31 cm.
