Aziz-i-Sultan, an adopted son the late Shah; his majesty was a man of whims and his treatment of this boy was one of the strangest of his many strange deeds; after the Shah's assassination the prime minister telegraphed to the new Shah, then in Tabriz, asking, "What shall be done with the Aziz-i-Sultan?", the reply was, "He was the beloved of the late king, he is not mine;" and so the boy who had been first a street gamin and then the spoiled favorite of a capricious monarch was turned out upon the world.
