Abstract: 

Faramarznameh is an epic poem, written either in the 5th century or at the beginning of the 6th century. Unfortunately, there is little information available on its writer. The poem is the story of Faramarz, Rostam’s son. According to Sistan’s history, the poem was initially more than twelve volumes, but the existing Faramarznameh has approximately 3200 lines. It describes Faramarz’s military expedition to India to save the locals and Noshad Shah from the five plagues.
These five problems are Kanas the Demon, Kaid Shah, an Indian monarch whose army has 900,000 men and who takes large amounts of tax from his people, the mighty “talking wolf” which has horns and is nine-hundred years old, a dragon living on the heights of a mountain, 30,000 rhinos who have destroyed everything in their path. During the fight with Kaid Shah, two more battles take place: The battle with Nushdar, the Indian who has 10,000 men, and the battle with a powerful predator named Sanur. Therefore, one might say that Faramarz, just like Rostam and Esfandiyar, had to go through seven labours or adventures. Even though Shahnameh has influenced Faramarznameh, its content is more similar to Garshasbnameh than to any other books. One of the most important missions of Garshasb is to go to India to fight with an Indian Shah named Bahu. The events that happen to Garshasb, are very similar to the events that happen to Faramarz.
