Abstract: 

Farhad is one of the most famous lovers, or perhaps the most famous lover, among Persian speaking people. He has always been a symbol of true love; however, we are not certain about his character because accurate information about him is not available. It seems that Farhad is a Parthian symbol fictionalized for the protection of the Parthian culture against the Sassanian cultural invasion. His popularity among Iranians has even led historians into assuming that he was a real character from history. In the present paper, the lexical meaning of the word “Farhad” has been explained, and then the real and mythical characters of Farhad have been studied with regard to Nezarni’s Khosrow and Shirin and available historical resources.
