Malekeh-Jahan (Malekeh-Jahan; 1875–1947) was the queen consort and cousin of Mohammad Ali Shah, and a member of the Qajar dynasty. Jahan is the daughter of Prince Kamran Mirza Nayeb es-Saltaneh and mother of Ahmad Shah Qajar. When she became queen, she naturally was called Queen Jahaan. However, Queen Jahaan also can be interpreted as Malekeh-ye Jahaan or "Queen of the World."[1]

After the death of Mohammad Ali Shah she kept the family together in exile in Europe.
