Name: Purandokht QUEEN OF PERSIA 1
Change Date: 12 FEB 2006
Death: 0631 1
Note: She was one of only two women on the throne of the Sassanid dynasty. She was sovereign monarch from 629 to 631. When Purandokht ascended to the throne, she attempted to bring stability to the empire. This stability was brought about by a peace treaty with the Byzantine Empire, the revitalization of the empire through the implementation of justice, reconstruction of the infrastructure, lowering of taxes, and minting coins. She was largely unsuccessful in her attempts to restore the power of the central authority which was weakened considerably by civil wars, and was murdered soon after. She was committed to reviving the memory and prestige of her father, during whose reign the Sassanid Empire had grown to its largest territorial extent.

- Title: Chronological birthyear estimator
Abbrev: chronological estimator
Chronological age estimator based on child's birthdate minus 20-25 years (for females), minus 30-35 years (for males) or minus a set # of years in those cases where an ancestor's birth date is known & a descendants' birth date is known (i.e. if five generations are known to have elapsed in a 150 year time interval, then the estimator is used for each generation, every 30 years). Also used for societies where children generally did not accede to kingships, etc., ascension date minus 30 years. Also used based on a known spousal birthdate, i.e. -2-4 years for females, +2-4 years for males.
