Abstract: AbdolhosseinMirza Farmanfarma is amongst a few Qajar princes who could promote his political and financial position after his father and grandfather. While stabilizing the position of Farmanfarma family and establishing wide relations with England, he became one of the influential figures in Iran’s political arena. But by declining of Qajar Monarchy and central government and internal disorders after Constitutional Revolution along with Russian Communist Revolution in Russia, Iran confronted with several domestic and international problems. Since British Government was afraid of spreading Russia’s revolution to Iran and India, so it prepared the coup-d’état of 1299 A.H. (1920 A.C.). But at the beginning of the coup, NosratoldollehFirooz the son of Farmanfarma was the main nominee as the head of coup. But suddenly Seyed Zia was selected for this purpose. Findings of this research indicate that by this event Farmanfarma Family completely lost its power and finally they lost their British supporters as well.
