Abstract: Farr or Farrah is a concept in Iranian myths. Farr is an endowment or a devine magnifiecence which one can achieve by reaching perfection. The member of each social class can have his/ her own Farr. In Iranian myth, these collocations have been used more than others: devine Farrah, kingly Farrah, Iranian Farrah, Kiani Farrah, moubadi Farrah , and athletic Farrah. King’s legitimacy and acceptability were dependent on their magnificence. A legitimate king was a king who had kingly Farrah or devine Farrah. Farr which can be missed through pride and hypocrisy, etc only belongs to pure individuals or Iranians. There are some examples in Iranian myths that the king has missed his legitimacy and magnificence for pride and big mistakes.
