Mihr Hormozd was an Iranian nobleman from the House of Suren. He was the son of Mardanshah, the padhuspan of Nemroz, who was later executed by the orders of the Sasanian king Khosrau II (r. 590-628). In 628, Khosrau was overthrown by his son Kavadh II (r. 628), and was taken to prison, where he was shortly executed by Mihr Hormozd who sought to avenge his father's death. However, after the execution, Kavadh had Mihr Hormizd killed.
