Princess Fawzia: Princess of Hearts Episode 5

Princess Fawzia born in 1921, was an Egyptian princess who became Queen of Iran as the first wife of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, Shah of Iran.

Fawzia was the daughter of Fuad I, the seventh son of Ismail the Magnificent. Her marriage to the Iranian Crown Prince in 1939 was a political deal: it consolidated Egyptian power and influence in the Middle East while bringing respectability to the new Iranian regime by association with the much more prestigious Egyptian royal house. It was never a love match, and Fawzia obtained an Egyptian divorce in 1945 (not recognized in Iran until 1948), under which their one daughter Princess Shahnaz would be brought up in Iran.

In 1949, Fawzia remarried Colonel Ismail Chirine, an Egyptian diplomat, with 

whom she had a son and a daughter.
