Abstract: 

Slave and slavery have been the main concerns of human rights in every culture and civilization. The names of the slaves in the oldest epics and mythology of the world is a testament to its long background. By referring to the histories and books related to the pre-Islamic era, the image of social economic, political and legal position, we have tried, in this article, to analyze verses from the Shahnameh. Slavery includes the presence of the children, women and men who had been denied of their freedom and served the well-to-do men. The further we go forward in the Shahnameh, the more we encounter with the slaves who lived in fairly good condition in the courts but there is little information about their status in the society.
