Samad Khan Momtaz os-Saltaneh, or Momtaz ol Saltaneh (1869–1955) (in Persian : صمد خان ممتاز السطنه) was an Iranian diplomat of the Qajar and Pahlavi dynasty era.

Early life

Samad Khan Momtaz was born in 1869 in Tabriz[1] in an Azeri family. His father was Ali Akbar Mokrem os-Saltaneh and his brothers were Momtaz Homayoun and Esmail Momtaz od-Dowleh,[2][3] His father was an eminent aristocrat and diplomat.[1]


In 1883, Samad Khan Momtaz os-Saltaneh was secretary to the legation of Persia in Paris. Later, he was embassy counsellor in St. Petersburg and participated in the European travels of Naser al-Din Shah Qajar and then Mozaffar ad-Din Shah Qajar. He was the Persian minister in Belgium and the Netherlands before being appointed Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Minister in Paris in April 1905. He remained at this position until March 1926.[1] He never returned to Iran and chose to live in Paris. He was recognized by the French government as counsellor of the Iranian embassy in Paris from 25 March 1946 to 27 September 1951.

Personal life

His first marriage, to an Iranian, resulted in a son, Abdollah, who would later become a diplomat in Iran. He had two daughters from a second marriage to a Frenchwoman. He died in 1955 in Paris and was buried at Père-Lachaise cemetery. In March 1921, Samad Khan was elevated to Prince by Ahmad Shah Qajar with the title of Royal Highness. He was a Grand Officier de la Légion d'honneur.[4][5]
