Malekeh-Jahan (Persian: ملکه جهان‎‎; 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 Jahan. However, Queen Jahan also can be interpreted as Malekeh-ye Jahan or "Queen of the World."[2]

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

She has also written "Borhan-ol-Iman" (means reason of faith) which contains some supplications and praying notes.[3]
