Reza Pahlavi Iran's former crown prince

Reza Pahlavi of Iran was born in Tehran, Iran on October 31, 1960 to the late Shah of Iran and Empress Farah Pahlavi. As Crown Prince of Iran and the oldest of four siblings, he left Iran at the age of 17 for air force training in the United States, during which time the establishment of the clerical regime in Iran prevented his return to his homeland. Despite being forced to live in exile, Reza Pahlavi’s commitment and patriotic duty to Iran endures. He is a dedicated advocate of human rights for his compatriots, for the liberation of Iran from the clerical regime, and for the establishment of a secular democracy in Iran. He has written two books: Winds of Change: The Future of Democracy in Iran (Regnery, 2002) and IRAN: L'Heure de Choix [IRAN: The Deciding Hour] (Denoël, 2009).
