Ali ibn Faramurz
|Ali ibn Faramurz|
|Emir of Yazd and Abarkuh|
|Reign||Ca. 1070 – 1095|
In 1076/1077, Ali married a daughter of Chaghri Beg named Arslan Katun, who was the widow of the Abbasid Caliph Al-Qa'im (1031-1075). Ali was a faithful vassal Seljuk and spent most of his reign at the court of the Seljuq Malik-Shah I in Isfahan. He was a patron of the Persian poet Mu'izzi who made some poems dedicated to him.
After the death of Malik-Shah I in 1092, Ali supported his brother Tutush I that dominated the western part of the Seljuq Empire, and considered his right to the throne more superior than Barkiyaruq. Tutush, however, was decisively defeated in a battle near Ray in 1095, where he and Ali were killed. Ali was succeeded by his son Garshasp II.
