 Iran's Reza Pahlavi
The omnipresent neo-conservative kingmakers are at it again, this time with the eloquent and dashing Crown Prince Reza Pahlavi, eldest son of the former enigmatic Iranian King of Kings, Mohammed Reza Shah Pahlavi, who ruled Iran from 1941 until his exile in 1979.
But some of the statements attributed to Pahlavi suggest that there's a dangerous streak of kingly greed that fuels his motives and that he merely covets the throne for personal reasons and, in order to get it, is willing to sell out the Iranian people in the process.
Under Reza Shah's 16 years of rule, roads and Trans-Iranian Railway were built, modern education was introduced and the University of Tehran was established, and for the first time, systematic dispatch of Iranian students to Europe was started.

 Queen writes of her fairy tale, without the happy ending
Throughout the 1960s and early 1970s, people told Farah Pahlavi she was living a "fairy tale" existence, and it was true: She was the queen of Iran, married to a man (the Shah of Iran) who had first spotted her in Paris, where she'd been an architecture student.
