Captain Prince Shahryar Shafiq (; b. March 15, 1945, Maadi, Cairo - d. December 7, 1979, Paris, France) was the son of Princess Ashraf Pahlavi, twin sister of the Shah of Iran, and Ahmad Shafiq.

Family

In 1967, he married Maryam Eghbal, the Christian daughter of Manouchehr Eghbal, who was earlier married to one of his uncles, a half-brother of the Shah. Together they had two sons:
