|House||House of Sasan|
|Mother||Unnamed sister of Khosrau II|
Shapur-i Shahrvaraz was the son of Shahrbaraz, the famous Sasanian spahbed and briefly shahanshah. His mother was the sister of Khosrau II. In 630, after Borandukht was deposed, Shapur became king of the Sasanian Empire but was shortly deposed by the Sasanian nobles who did not acknowledge his rule. He was succeeded by his cousin Azarmidokht. When she became queen of Persia, Farrukh Hormizd proposed to marry her, which Shapur was in favor of; however, Azarmidokht declined the proposal and became angry at Shapur for agreeing. What happened to Shapur afterward is not known.
