Biography

Manūchehr (in Persian: منوچهر‎‎), older Persian Manōčihr, Avestan Manuščiθra, is a character in the Shahnameh. He is the first of the legendary Shāhs who ruled Iran after the breakup of the world empire of Manūchehr's great-grandfather, Fereydūn.
Manūchehr was the grandson of Īrāj, who was the son of Fereydūn, and he avenged the death of Īrāj at the hands of Fereydūn's other two sons, Salm and Tūr. From the death of Tūr in Manūchehr's war of vengeance sprang a war between the peoples of Īrān and Tūrān that would last for centuries, until the reign of Kai Khosrow.
Manūchehr died after a reign of 120 years, and was succeeded by his son Nowzar.
