Narsieh (Middle Persian: 𐭭𐭥𐭮𐭧𐭩Narseh; simplified Chinese: 泥涅师; traditional Chinese: 泥涅師; pinyin: Nìnièshī) was a Persian general who fled to the Tang dynasty with his father, Peroz III, son of Yazdgerd III, the last Sassanid king of Persia.[1]

He was escorted back to Persia by Pei Xingjian in 679 but was abandoned midway. He then spent his time fighting the Arabs in Tokharistan until he returned to the Tang capital of Chang'an in 707, where lived out the remainder of his life before dying from disease.[1]

Narsieh's uncle Bahram VII died in 710, and his son Khosrau was mentioned fighting alongside Sogdians and Turks against the Arabs at the Siege of Kamarja in 729. This is possibly the last reference to any direct descendant of Yazdegerd III.[1]
