Soleyman II (18 June 1714 - 19 May 1763[1]), was the ruler of Persia from 1749 until 1750. His real name was Mir Sayyed Mohammad Marashi and he was in charge of Holy Shrines in Qom and Mashhad. His mother was the daughter of Safavid shah Suleiman I, and so in 1750 he was enthroned by Alam Khan Arab Khozaima and some Kurdish and Jalayirid chiefs thus taking the throne name of Soleyman II. Shahrokh was blinded but was restored to the throne after only a few months, as Soleyman II was removed and blinded. [2][3]
