In the previous article, you have read all the history of Princess Qajar and Qajar Dynasty (if not click here). This article is about the truth of about symbol of beauty in Persia, but before talking about the story and its truth, I want to tell you some of the facts we must remember about the internet and social media before using it.
We see some good or bad news every day through the internet and social media, some of them are through verified mediums, and some of them are through unverified mediums, but before considering it or sharing it with others, we need to verify the news, whether it is true or false.
The story with this news of Princess Qajar is same. Yes, you are thinking right this news isn’t true. There was no Princess Qajar apparently but just Qajar Dynasty, who ruled Persia for more than a century. The princess who referred to as Princess Qajar or symbol of beauty wasn’t known with these titles.
Now let me tell you the history of the story and from where it borns.
In late 2017 this picture was posted by a Persian website and then it was viral on the internet and social media as a meme with the subtitles “this woman was a symbol of beauty in Persia (Iran) and 13 men killed themselves because she rejected them”, and her name was Princess Qajar, then this meme breaks all the records but no one confirm wheater it is true or not.
The fact about this story was that the Persian woman likes to wear a mustache and it was fashionable at that time and many Perian sources and photographs from the nineteenth century confirm that Qajar women like a thin mustache as a sign of beauty on their face.
This picture was first shared on forums like Reddit, where the story was rejected and debunked straight away but then it was shared of social media like Facebook and Instagram and then it went viral, and the users pick it and start posting it on their accounts, and it becomes a trend on Twitter also, the story remains unchanged for months.
The whole truth of the story was available on the Internet that time and today also and the truth is only one search away from you but the problem is we people couldn’t search, and the truth is that there is no Princess Qajar is real world but the pictures shared were pictures not of a girl.
The pictures were of two sisters Princess Fatemah Khanum”‘Esmat al-Dowleh” and her half-sister, Princess Zahra Khanom Tadj es-Saltaneh, both the princesses were the daughter of Naser ul-din Shah who was the king of Persia and ruled Persia for almost 50 years.
Most of the photographs are of Princess Fatemah Khanum, but according to history, this princess was married when she was 13 and got divorced.
